Japanese and Korean feast from 7-eleven

Thanks to 7-eleven's marketing department for sending me cute bunny ears and redemption vouchers to try their Japanese and Korean food.

Here was what I tried:

Oden skewers:

There were eight skewers to choose from but they only had two choices that day.

Here were the two I tried.

The flat one on the upper right was quite spicy with strands of glass vermicelli in it.
The roll on the lower left was more to my liking.
Teriyaki chicken pizza $16.9:

There is a calibrated oven just for the pizzas.
The pizza looked promising with the cheese nicely melted but the base was too soft.

Rice with pork and egg $14.9:

The pork and rice was quite tasty because the sauce was nice, however there was not much egg in it.
Onsen egg $9.9:

The onsen egg was perfect with a runny yolk.
After it was added to the rice, the pork was enhanced by the delicious silky yolk.
Rice with sukiyaki chicken $14.9:

The chicken was ok, but the pork was tastier.

Nestle Greek Apple Cinnamon yoghurt

Nice yoghurt with crisp pieces of apple at the bottom which were not too sweet.
However, it was rather pricey for HKD$13.9 because the yogurt cup was small it was not filled to the top.

The Asian Nestle Greek yoghurt version is different to other countries because if you google it the size and flavours are different.

Walkers Pops

Walkers Pops are new crisps which are air-popped snacks and claim to be 50% less fat than standard potato crisps.

Currently available in Original, Sour Cream & Onion, Melted Cheese & Crispy Bacon, and Prawn Cocktail.

Thanks to my mum, I got my hands on the Original and Prawn cocktail.

They look like perfectly uniform round Chinese prawn crackers but the texture is similar Monster munches with that maize feeling in it.
It was surprising how two different flavours could taste so different, the prawn cocktail was very acidic but had that usual prawn cocktail smell and the original was much nicer with a strong potato taste.

Hojicha latte drumstick by Nestle

I don't normally try Nestle's drumsticks because the flavours are quite boring but I was looking at some icecreams when I discovered they had Hojicha latte flavour.

Hojicha is a roasted tea from Japan with a hint of caramel.

The Hojicha latte icecream tasted quite nice with a light tea taste.
I assumed the whole cone was filled with that icecream but when I got to the cone part it had vanilla icecream in it as well which was disappointing because only the top part was hojicha and the bottom tastes like vanilla icecream with a hint of coconut.

They also have pistachio drumsticks but if the bottom half is not filled with 100% pistachio icecream I would be pretty angry because I love pistachio icecream.
