Jack 'n Jill Salted Egg Crisps

Salted Egg is trending at the moment so we are seeing salted egg in everything.
Lots of crisp brands and even fast food chains like KFC and McDonalds have some form of salted egg in their dishes.

Jack 'n Jill has the salted egg crisps too with a difference.

It is different in the sense you have to put the salted egg yolk powder in the bag and shake it.

I liked it that way because I got to taste the crisps without any seasoning and they were just as good as your usual ready salted crisps.

Overall I was really impressed with these crisps because the salted egg flavour and crisps were not sweet like other Chinese brands.

Camellia is not just a garden flower

Earlier this year I discovered Camellia oil because it was awarded 'The Best Natural Cooking Oil' award at Hong Kong LOHAS Award 2019.

Sunplan - Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Camellia Oil is a vegetable oil extracted from Camellia tea seeds which contains all three essential fatty acids like Omega 3, 6 & 9.

Since I have this plant in my garden, I felt compelled to try it because Camellia has always been a pretty flower in the garden.

Camellia Flower tree in my garden now without any flowers because it now past the flowering season.

Before I use any ingredient, I will always smell and taste it so that it can be used accordingly.

I was expecting the oil to have a flowery aroma like the real plant but it didn't which meant you could use the oil for anything like cooking and making cakes.

One of the advantages of Camellia oil is its high smoke point (burning point) which means it is suitable for cooking at high temperatures like frying food.

I used the oil on egg fried rice because egg is the soul of fried rice and it turned out quite well.

It just behaved like normal oil and the fried rice tasted good as you could still taste the egg.

For baking, I happily used the oil in the muffin mixture because it is good for your health and better than using non nutritious oils.

As as well as cooking, it can also be used on hair and skin.

The best thing is that it complies to the FDA which is something I trust.

Sunplan - Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Camellia Oil can be purchased from HKTVmall:

Singaporean crisps by F.EAST

F.EAST Flavours of The East are a brand of crisps from Singapore that brings you flavours from the East like Hainan Chicken which is a national dish of Singapore.

There are three flavours in the range:
Hainan Chicken, Singapore Laksa and Egg Prata with Fish curry.

As a crisps and cup noodles addict I had to try them all so I was really lucky to get the set.

Here were my thoughts on all the flavours which can be found at 711 and supermarkets that stock them.

Hainan Chicken:
They tasted like a mix of chicken and spring onion flavoured crisps with a touch of ginger.
Overall quite nice because it is a flavour that I can relate to.

Singapore Laksa:
There was a strong coconut smell when this bag of Singapore laksa crisps was opened.
In terms of taste, it was very coconutty and sweet with a slightly spicy aftertaste.

Egg Prata with Fish curry:
The egg prata with Fish curry was super spicy just like those crisps you get from Indian shops.
It tasted similar to Lay's India's Magic Masala which I previously posted.
