These Nissin Black garlic oil crisps are under the Nissin Koikeya series.
When I opened the bag, there was a really strong sesame smell but when you eat it the garlic becomes stronger with every crisp you put in your mouth to the point that it tastes bitter.
As with all Asian crisps packets they like to fill it a third full.
I found the crisps tasting like a concentrated version of the black garlic oil noodles.
As an expat, Marks and Spencer is always my haven for British food.
Today's visit was not good and the staff should have better training as they are ruining this prestigious British brand in Hong Kong.
I was buying stuff when I discovered a moldy bap in the pack so I went and told the cashier who didn't respond in a normal way.
Me: It's moldy.
Cashier: yes because it expires today.
(scans the buns)
Me: I am just telling u its moldy not that I would want it..
Location: marks n spencer, East point city, hong kong
As a kid I have always loved Angel Delight because it is simple to make and delicious.
Basically you just add milk and whisk away.
There is a new mint chocolate flavour which tastes amazing.
The butterscotch is just as good, thick and creamy.
Got this hot chocolate magic stars mixture from Poundland and make cold milk chocolate because I wa s too lazy to boil some milk.
The taste was quite sweet and malty and you can find tiny chocolate stars in the powder.
I was excited when I saw Hartley's new glitter jelly range in the supermarkets.
There are three flavours:
-Hartley's Mixed Berry Glitter Jelly
I tried this because the soup had black olives in it.
The taste of the soup was quite tart but not as thick as it claims.
I wish there were more chunky pieces of olives in the soup.
There are so many slush makers but this one is exclusive to Vita's VLT.
You can get it for $25 by purchasing $20 more on Vita's Chrysanthemum Tea or Lemon tea at 7-11. Circle K and Vango.
I admit, I was too impatient on my first go so it didn't work.
You have to put it in the fridge for at least six hours!
Tried the new Tropicavo chicken burger which is a crispy chicken patty topped with avocado, a slice of cheese, mayonnaise and some orange sauce.
The box was quite cute.
The paper wrap was also nicely presented, on one side it is avocado for this burger and the other side has pineapples for the prawn burger.
I was lucky at this branch because they put quite a bit of sauce which differs in different branches.
The burger tasted quite salty and I couldn't quite taste the avocado.
I love apple crumble so I had to try McDonald's new Apple Crumble McFlurry.
It was a bit disappointing because it was just softserve with apple paste and butter cookie crumbs.
The taste would have been more convincing if they used their delicious apple pie filling.
I am not a fan of mentos mints of the fruit flavours but the mentos choco series were sooooooooooooo delicious.
It was chewy caramel filled with chocolate.
There are two flavours choco caramel and mint caramel filled with chocolate.
It is interesting that these flavours are so Chinese and a delicacy claiming to contain at least 1000mg of collagen in the cupnoodles.
Softshell Turtle cupnoodle:
However, I felt that is tasted better without the sachet of oil.
Shark Fin cupnoodle:
The Shark Fin was quite nice because the soup tasted like Chinese herb soup and it was thick with pieces of black fungus, bokchoy and wolfberries.
Custard is a must with dessert, especially pies and puddings.
It beats ice cream any day.
Bird's Instant custard works for me because you just boil water from the kettle, stir it with the powder and it is ready to serve.
All I can say is that these noodles were too spicy for me.
日清のとんがらし麺×TOKYO FM Skyrocket
I put them in the fridge before eating and they turned out really nice because the thick lemon chocolate had a strong lemon taste and they were not too sweet.
It was surprising they had this Left and Right Twix.
However I ruined the experiment because I had the Left first and the Right was refridgerated so the texture and taste was certainly different.
It was nice because I got the box and spoon.
The chocolate egg had rich chocolate mousse in the middle.
But as a dandan flavour it did well because there were lots of crushed peanuts in it.
However the broth gets a bit sweet afterwards.
