Madame Pearl's HerbalCool drink with honey

I thought is was part of the Sensa Cools series, however when I looked at the label it was made by Madam Pearl's.

Anyway I dont believe it has any benefits because it is a herbal drink but I just felt like trying it.

It claims to be low in sugar yet it contains honey.
The taste of it was syrupy and sweet as expected and very artificial.

Kellogg's special K red berry cereal bar

I like the sexy red packaging which coincides with the cranberry and Maxfactor's new lipstick.
However I prefer Kellogg's raspberry cereal bar because cranberry is slightly sour and there is a slight pineapple taste in it.

Sainsbury's version of the red berry bar:

PACIFIC NATURAL FOODS hazelnut non-diary beverage

Got this drink because I like hazelnut and it is non-dairy!
It is made from rice.
The hazelnut chocolate drink was pleasant to drink and not too sweet, however the hazelnut taste was faint.

7-11 exclusive assorted lo mei and roasted spring chicken

Got two products from "Tang Shun Hing" packaged exclusively for 7-11.

Although they are designed to be heated up and eaten at 7-11, it proves to be messy and a sticky task.The contents of the food are packed in a vacuumed sealed bag, with a plastic tray and a pair of gloves, you need to open the inner bag, empty the contents into the dish and simply microwave it.

Hence very troublesome to carry out at your local 7-11, also the tray is not really deep enough.

I got the Lo Shui purely because it was pre-packaged, it horrifies me to get them from restaurants from metal trays by the windows with oil dripping off, flies buzzing around them and the exposure to sunlight through the windows.

The Lo Shui mix contains duck wings, ducks feet, ducks liver, ducks gizzard, and peanuts, and the spring roasted chicken was just half of a spring chicken. I thought it would be a whole chicken, but it was just half a bird.

After microwaving it, it was ready to eat.

The Lo Shui mix was quite nice, although for the ducks feet and wings, it only contained one piece each.All of the items were quite soft, except for the duck’s liver, which I was quite looking forward to, it probably got dehydrated during the heating process.

The gizzards, which I do not usually eat, were the best that I have had, the texture was a bit like baby pork shanks.They were evenly sliced, not looking like shrivelled up gonads from Chinese medicine places.The only thing that let it down was the saltiness of all the lo shui items.

As for the spring chicken, it just tasted ok.

Alpen Strawberry and yogurt cereal bar

I loved this cereal bar, it was nice and chewy with generous yoghurt icing drizzled on top and at the base.
The strawberry flavouring was not fake.

Paldo Chlorella cup noodle - Savory seafood flavour

Nice and colourful, however it tasted very fishy and the noodles were foamy.

KOKA Instant noodles Laksa Singapura flavour

Milk powder

This brand does not taste as good as Gozen Men, but the sachets of seasoning are nicely separated especially the chilli oil and surprisingly there is a bag of milk powder which I have never seen before.
However there is a strong CFC odour from the bowl.

I think the packet version will taste better which I hope to try soon.

IndoMie Pop Mie Rasa Ayam instant cup noodles

Basically the same as "IndoMie Pop Mie Rasa Soto Ayam instant cup noodles" except there are only three sachets of soup powder inside.
Again, the chili powder is packaged separately.
After trying the Soto one first, this one just tasted the same but purely of chicken stock.

Indomie Pop Mie Rasa Soto Ayam instant cup noodles

I was surprised to find out from Wikipedia that Indomie is the world's largest instant noodle manufacturer located in Indonesia.
It is distributed in New Zealand and United States so it can't taste that bad.
The price of these cup noodles were dirt cheap! They cost about 20p (British currency) per cup however the portion is not that big.
I was impressed that the chili was in a separate sachet and there was no plastic odour/taste in the noodles.
As the noodles are thicker than other brands, I had to let it stand longer before eating.
The soup was quite viscous.
After I finished the noodles, the remaining soup was quite oily and slick, but then if you are health conscious you can leave out putting that sachet of oil seasoning in it.
