Fermented Black garlic experience - Black gold

After reading the article below, I have always wanted to try Black garlic. In the UK supermarket it sells for £1.50 as an item to enhance food flavouring, however in Singapore it is marketed as a health product, in Hong Kong it is sold at $55 (£4.63)  in the pharmacy.


I tried it purely because I like trying things and not for the health benefits.

The taste was really nice, it was soft, mushy and sweet, there was a twinge of sourness and there was an interesting feeling because of the pH levels. It also reminds me of roasted garlic.

The garlic odour and smell was still present in the fermented garlic.

The fermented process is similar to the thousand year egg which also has high pH levels. The pH on the garlic is stated to be 10.3. This chemical process breaks down some of the complex, flavorless proteins and fats, which produces a variety of smaller flavorful compounds.


Welcome to a whole new world of flavor.

Introducing a simple food with a wonderfully complex flavor. Black garlic is sweet meets savory, a perfect mix of molasses-like richness and tangy garlic undertones. It has a tender, almost jelly-like texture with a melt-in-your-mouth consistency similar to a soft dried fruit. Hard to believe, but true. It’s as delicious as it is unique. (quoted from

Werthers Original Caramel Mousse

I never liked Werthers Original caramels because they were hard.
But came across this chocolate filled with caramel mousse so decided to try it.

The mousse inside was disappointing because it was not silky mousse but just ordinary filling.
Although the texture was not what I expected, it tastes better than the hard caramel sweets.

Kidsmania strawberry candy

Got this because the packaging was interesting! Obviously it is made in China, so I doubt I will actually finish the whole candy.

The candy is contained in a folded plastic box.

The taste was really fake, but I didnt expect much from it because it is from China and it was really cheap!

CROLEY FOOD's ButterCream Ube crackers

These crackers were sweet and extremely buttery as stated, however the ube taste was weak.
The crackers were lightly dusted with sugar.

The size of these crackers were about 4cm x 13cm which were quite big, but the thickness was really thin about 3-4mm.

There were three crackers in each individual pack inside the large pack.

Hooked to my fish! Fish hook found in my fish!

YUKI & LOVE Chocolate Mochi with milk and peanut

Saw these mochis that were coated with chocolate so decided to get them.
There were three flavours peanut, sesame and red beans.

Peanut was the least disliked flavour of the three so I got that.

The product shot was quite confusing because you couldnt tell if they were heart shaped or bar shaped.

In the box they were individually packed and there is a tray inside containing the mochi and a dessicant.

Overall I really liked it and it was not too sweet, however I do  not recommend it during the summer because the chocolate coating melts and in Asian countries, not all shops are well air conditioned.
Even if they are well air conditioned, the air conditioner is switched off when they closed.

The mochi was chewy and quite sticky.

Senorita Cooked Dry Peas

Was attracted by this can because the can looked quite classy, almost like the high end brands.

It is quite surprising that Philipino foods can be quite well packaged and the English is perfect with standard nutrition labellings.

When I opened the can, it was filled with quite alot of brine, there was only half a can of peas inside.

As I do not know how you are suppose to eat them, I just ate them straight from the can.
Anyway as these are dry peas, they tasted quite hard and dry.

Magnolia Cheezee Squeeze, Squeeze that Cheese!

Bought some squeezy cheese that was really nice, however I put too much on my bread and realised it was too salty after taking a bite.
Since it was really salty I put another piece of bread on top and the taste was just right and not too salty.
It was really nice and cheesy.
They also have cheezee squeeze in Pimento flavour as well.
