Samudra Pandan cake

Usually Pandan cakes are from Singapore, but this one is was from Malaysia.

When the box was opened there was a really nice strong pandan coconut smell.

The texture of the cake was nice and soft but coarser than the Singaporean version.

I wish they had black cherries as toppings but it was just berry sauce.....

Häagen-Dazs Secret Sensations meringue & raspberry fondant

Previously tried the Häagen-Dazs Secret Sensations creme brulee and the Häagen-Dazs Secret Sensations chocolate fondant.
This time they had Häagen-Dazs Secret Sensations meringue & raspberry fondant so tried it as well.

Basically it is vanilla ice-cream with pieces of meringue in it and the centre is liquid raspberry jam/syrup.

When I tried it, it just tasted like Walls Raspberry ripple with pieces of crispy meringue in it.

A1 Bak Kut Teh Instant Noodles

I love Bak Kut Teh especially because of the strong  herbal smell and taste of dong guai.
However I do not know how to make real Bak Kut Teh so I satisfy my cravings by going to restaurants.
A1 also does a Bak Kut Teh soup pack so their instant noodles are probably not far off.

I have tried instant noodles in Bak kut teh soup but because there was real spare ribs in the broth, I found it quite oily, also the type of instant noodles they used did not match the broth.
When I opened the packet for the A1 Bak Kut Teh instant noodles, I knew I was going to like the noodles, because they were thinner than the usual instant noodles.

Also when I opened the soup powder sachet, the strong was really strong and I loved it.

The noodles are cooked in the usual way and I prefer to leave them harder to start with so that it soaks the broth when it gets softer.

The taste of these noodles were truly great but they were quite pricey.

Other instant noodles in this range:

River Mill Cookies

These NZ butter cookies come in three flavours: Manuka honey, kiwi and golden kiwi.

I only got hold of the Manuka honey and the kiwi.
Manuka honey cookies:
I do not usually like these butter cookies but the taste of the manuka honey went well with the buttery taste.

Kiwi cookies:
I didnt know what to expect but initially I thought it was weird having kiwi in the cookie but then I realised NZ is famous for Kiwi's.
What was more surprising, my friend my Auz said it was weird too, but I assumed Auz and NZ were similar.

EDO Almond Pastry

I do not buy EDO products but someone bought it so I tried it.
As with all EDO products they are dry and greasy.

Montero Coco.France Goose Liver pate

Was given this from someone who went to Vietnam.

Although  I like pate, I delayed in trying it because I thought it would be really dense but when I opened it, I s surprised it was very light and soft.
The pate was very moist too.
However it lacked the velvety texture of goose liver pates and it was similar to baby food in thick form.
There was also pieces of wheat in the pate but I could not see that listed in the ingredients.

Japanese instant soup

Some Japanese product that requires adding hot water and turns into soup.
It has clams and seaweed.

W.L Food CORN BITS chicken flavour

These are snacks made in the Philippines.
They are pieces of deep fried sweetcorn but not quite like popcorn.
Overall they were nice but the artificial chicken flavouring was too strong.

Fake pig ears made in China
Recently, fake pig ears were found being sold in the market of Ganzhou City, Jiangxi Province. The local Bureau of Industry and Commerce has seized some of these processed artificial pig ears, and sent to the local product-testing authority for examination.
According to their preliminary conclusion, these fake pig ears could have been made from the industry gelatin and plastic material.

Circle K Exclusive : Hokkaido-Yo

Saw these bright green ice-cream tubs behind the counter at Circle K so I had a closer look.
It turns out they were Hokkaido style froyo, an exclusive product of Circle K.
There were three flavours fuji apple, grape and Original.
It was interesting having them at different temperatures!
Straight from the freezer or letting it defrost for a while.
Hokkaido-Yo Original
The texture was light and airy like mousse and I loved it.
It was really nice and creamy but the texture was like whipped melted marshmallow.
There was some slight Froyo taste too but not the Yakult type of taste.
Anyway I'll be back for more.

Hokkaido-Yo Apple
The texture was the same as above and the taste of the fuji apple was really prominent.
It has that strong taste you get from chewing apple skin of fuji apple.

Hokkaido-Kyoho grape
The texture was the same as above and the taste was not as fake as I thought it would be.
