FOX's glacier fruit sweets - strawberry flavour

Fox's glacier sweets are a British brand, but somehow the one I have here is an Indonesian version which is wrapped differently probably due to their hot climate.
In UK they are wrapped in wrappers with the two ends twisted, but the Indonesian version is seal.

The shape of the sweet is also different.

Calbee Curry flavoured potato chips

Evidently theses are crisps but I don't know why they are called CHIPS in Hong Kong!

Anyway, I found that Hong Kong crisps are harder than the UK ones.

These crisps were rather spicy with strong sage herbs but lacked curry taste.

Knorr chili liquid seasoning

I knew this was spicy, but I didnt know it was that spicy!

Borlands AUSTRALIA Macadamia nut and choc chip butter shortbread

Tasted just like a buttery cookie with chocolate and nut pieces.
It seems that shortbreads are popular in Auz and NZ and they have lots of flavours too such as kiwifruit shortbread.

Angel Fruity mooncakes 安琪水果月饼 Pineapple

The Angel Fruity mooncakes 安琪水果月饼 are filled with dense fruit filling which is really nice because I do not like lotus paste or mung bean paste.
There are three flavors: Melon, Pineapple and Strawberry.

I tried the melon which tasted really similar to the Taiwanese Pineapple cake but much better because I do not like the buttery pastry of the Taiwanese version.

The sweetness was just right and not cloyingly sweet.
Although the filling was nice, the texture was rather dense and sticky and I still have my reservations for eating products from China because they could be synthetic!

Lipton Tropical Fruit TEA

This drink is from the Japanese line of Lipton.

I found it too sweet and the flavouring really artificial especially the aftertaste.

The tea taste was really faint which was disappointing.

AAPE By A Bathing Ape x Pepsi "Moonface Camo" Cans

Got the green version but found out there is a cute pink version as well.

KIRIN European style berry and orange tea

According to the label: darjeeling tea and flavouring.

I always think that orange and teas are a great pairing and this one has berries as well as orange so tried it as well.
Overall it was quite syrupy but the orange and tea flavouring could have been stronger.
The berry taste was quite strong.

Suntory Barley Tea
Ingredients according to the label: Barley, Sprout Barley, Green tea and vitamin C.

Smells and tastes like watered down marmite + roasted black coffee.

HeySong Camellia Green Tea (Sugar Free)

A girly drink because it tasted flowery hence I did not like it because it had Camellia Extract as well as Oolong tea and Jasmine.
But since it was sugar free it didnt taste so bad.

YAMATAI Miso Butter Ramen Noodles 116g

Got these noodles because the flavour was interesting, it was butter and miso, on the lid there was pieces of potato as well.

It is common for the Japanese to add butter to their ramen although I have never tried it before.

When I peeled the lid, there were three sachets inside: One sachet of liquid miso, One sachet of butter (which smelt like margerine) and a condiments sachet which really had dehydrated roast/fried potato pieces.

It was good that the miso was liquid form because the powder version is quite artificial and it seems that you have paid for what its worth.

I added hot water and then the miso sachet and butter.

The noodles tasted OK because the miso soup was strong and if you like melted butter that is another bonus.

I could not find a website for these noodles.

明星食品 一平ちゃん 夜店の焼そば 明太子味 Myojo Ippei-Chan Yakisoba mentaiko flavour with butter taste mayo

Yomise no Yakisoba mentaiko flavour with butter taste mayo

I got these noodles because there were about three fun sauces/condiments inside to put in the noodles: Japanese style mayonnaise, mentaiko and soy sauce.
When you peel back the lid, the dehydrated vegetables are already with the noodles and the other three sachets of sauces are separate.

As well as the good packaging, the website was hidden beneath the plastic wrapping on the lid.

The reason I liked the packaging is that these noodles need to drained and they have designed some holes where the water can be drained.
I tried some similar noodles which did not have this design and ended up tipping all the noodles in the sink!

There is a video below which shows this cool packaging and they have three other noodles in this series that have mayonnaise but the website does not have ENGLISH!!!
From the online translations the other flavours appear to be mustard, charcoal and sea salt and the other one I cant quite make out.

Anyway, the noodles tasted delicious, although my pictures do not look as good as the ones in the video because I did not take photos of the condiments mixed.

Ace Summer yuzu and chicken noodles

Got these noodles because they seemed refreshing as it had grapefruit and chicken.

When I removed the lid, there were two sachets, one for condiments and the other was soup.

The condiments sachet had dehydrated: cabbage, bok-choy, seasoned minced chicken, corn, green onion, and red pepper.
As for the soup powder I was slightly disappointed because the grapefruit smell was really faint.

After adding hot water and letting it to stand 3 minutes they were ready to eat.

The prominent flavour I could taste was just grapefruit peel and that was not very pleasant.
I was expecting a strong chicken flavouring with a refreshing touch of citrus or grapefruit.
The labelling is quite interesting it has a table of all the ingredients and the ones that are in these noodles are highlighted.

Meiji Low Fat Yogurt with strawberry

Out of the Meiji Low fat yogurts I have tried, this one tastes the most artificial and slightly too sweet.
However there were two whole strawberries found in the pot.
