Nestle CRUNCH Hem Antep Fıstıklı Hem Fındıklı

Nestle CRUNCH milk chocolate with crisped rice, hazelnut and pistachio

In Turkey, they have CRUNCH with crisped rice, hazelnuts and pistachio nuts.

I gave it a try and I really loved it and finished it all.

As well as crisped rice, there was hazelnuts and pistachio nuts and the whole thing was not too sweet.

There is a white chocolate and raspberry version too.

Nestle Crunch White chocolate with crisped rice and raspberry candy

In Turkey, they have CRUNCH White chocolate with crisped rice and raspberry candy.

I do not usually buy white chocolate because it is too sweet but since this one was a Turkish edition I tried it.
Surprisingly it was delicious, the white chocolate was not too sweet or creamy.
The tiny raspberry candy balls made it sweet.

There is a chocolate crisped rice, hazelnut and pistachio version too.

Haagen-Dazs World's First Shop Miniature

Total time used to complete the shop miniature: 1.5 hours
Diffuculty: Easy Peasy, I did not look at the instructions
Info: This model represents Haagen-Dazs first retail store in Brooklyn, New York, on November 15, 1976

When I saw this model I just had to get it from Haagen Dazs because I love playing with these sorts of things.

Anyway I was really lucky and got it and I just couldnt wait to build it.

The model was made of coated foam and the pieces were easy to punch out from the frame.

The smaller holes needed something sharp and small to punch out, hence I used the tip of a metal nail filer.

When I was putting the pieces of together, they fitted easily and all the pieces were pre-cut to the precise position and everything snapped into place.

The hardest part was the the table at the front of the shop, the umbrella at the top was the hardest to complete.

It looked so cute when it was finished.

JT Green Tea Milk Drink

I was attracted by this slim bottle which only holds 330ml.
The green tea taste was really pleasant and there was no bitterness or grassiness.
The sweetness was just right as well.

Dreyer's D Collection Champagne & Strawberry Limited edition

Walked past and saw the poster for this which I thought was mango because of the colour, but when I walked closer found out that it was Champagne & Strawberry so I went in and got the last tub!

The taste did not taste like real strawberry or have any champagne or alcoholic flavour to it.

It tasted like the strawberry flavoured opal fruits/Starburst fruit chews which are a British sweet.

Double deluxe soy sauce by Lee Kum Kee

Nicest tasting soy sauce I have tasted. It was so nice that I had lots of rice with it!

TUDOR GOLD Milk chocolate from Malaysia

Found this too sweet and the chocolate texture was rather sugary, the dark chocolate version with or without hazelnuts would have probably fared better.

Tuscan pizza at Hong Kong's pizzahut

Feta and prawns, Camembert and portabello, Camembert with sausage meat

Tao Ti Ginger tea with brown sugar

Saw this new ginger tea drink and the packaging was quite nice so I got it.

The fieryness of the ginger is quite strong, if you take a sip and do not swallow it, you can feel the fieryness on your tongue.
After you swallow it, there is a slight tingling sensation on the throat.

However I found the sweetness too sweet.

Softshell turtle!

I havent tried this, but it looks like some people eat this as it is being sold in a market!

Fisherman's Friend Sweet Lime

Very refreshing lime mints with an extremely strong lime smell that others can smell when you talk!

DEDE Coconut juice

Slightly sweet but it was quite nice because there was generous pieces of young coconut.

San Pellegrino Sparkling Juice - Bloody orange

Rather sweet and tasted like non alcoholic fruit punches

Friday, 5 October 2012


When I saw this, it just instantly reminded me of the British chocolate covered cornflake snack!
We even learnt to make it at school.
They can be found in local supermarkets but the one I am reviewing here is a Japanese version, which basically tastes the same!

Virgin CoCo Coconut crispy rolls Cocoa Dip

Nicely packaged crispy rolls dipped in Chocolate, however the chocolate melts so not very good if it is a hot day.

The labelling has English which is good.

As for the taste they tasted quite nice but there was some plasticky taste as well from the packaging.

Durian biscuit from Singapore

Thanks to my friend for bringing me this Durian flavoured biscuit from Singapore.

I really liked it because the texture and taste was like a biscuit with a hint of Durian.

Reese's minis - unwrapped mini cups PEANUT BUTTER CUPS

I have never tried these before because there are not many American Brands in UK.

These peanut butter cups are peanut butter inside chocolate, in UK Peanut butter is just spread.

Anyway, I have vaguely seen these butter cups before because they remind me of Toffifee.

It was so interesting that these Peanut butter cups come in different sizes and for each different size the ratio of chocolate and peanut butter are different.

The size of the minis were really cute and on the packaging it actually shows the real size!
I found them quite sugary so I can only eat a few at a time and the peanut butter is more sugary than the spread.

Momoko Premium Teh Kuan Yin 1 Litre Bottle

A very big bottle of Iron Buddha flavoured tea!
The taste was ok nothing extraordinary about it.

Suntory Gokuri Banana‏

I am not a fan of banana because it tastes artificial especially in drinks and foods if essense is used.

Came accross this banana drink from Suntory which a nice and bright simple design!
Other flavours in this line are pineapple and grapefruit.

The taste of this drink was fake as expected and it was fizzy which I was least expecting.
