[Review] Rodda's classic Cornish clotted cream

I love clotted cream so I like trying out different brands to see if they are any different.
Rodda's classic Cornish clotted cream had a nice design, it was printed on both sides.

The tub was big which is great for people like me who cannot get enough of clotted cream.

The texture of the clotted cream seemed quite thick when I put my knife in it but at the bottom it was lovely and gooey.

As for the taste, it was extremely fragrant just like heavenly condensed milk without the sweetness.
I wouldn't mind having this everyday as it melts in your mouth.
Rodda's clotted cream is that nice that it tastes so good on scone without any jam.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this clotted cream.

J2o Glitterberry

I didn't try this product but I found it visually attractive.
The good thing is that it is a pretty drink that is non alcoholic with swirling glitter.

The glitter is at the bottom so you have to shake it thoroughly to get the sparkling effects.

[Review] Morinaga Milk Tea Cake

Tried the Morinaga Milk Tea Cake which I got from the convenience store.
Sadly as tea lover I was disappointed with these cakes as they were too sweet and the texture was weird.

[Review] Korean Dark Snickers

Snickers is a popular chocolate bar with caramel and peanuts covered in milk chocolate.
It can be quite sweet so dark chocolate snickers is ideal.
I liked the way it was two smaller bars inside so you don't have to finish it in one go.

Overall, I found the dark chocolate version satisfying and guilt free.

Kitkat Mint 2 Ways (Australia)

Kitkats used to be boring but there are now so many different editions and flavours from different countries.
Recently tried the Kitkat Mint 2 Ways from Australia which is visually pretty.

One end is chocolate and the other end is mint green.

It is 2 ways in the sense that one side has crispy bits while the other side is smooth.

Overall, I liked it because I agree with mint chocolate flavours but I preferred the smooth side.

[Review] Twix Dark Chocolate

I love Twix but it can get a bit sweet sometimes hence the Twix Dark Chocolate is ideal.
The sweetness is balanced by the dark chocolate.

[Review] Pocky Choco Mint

I love anything that is mint chocolate so tried the Pocky Choco Mint.
The box was cute, it was mint coloured which matched the contents.

The pocky sticks were more or less how it looked on the product picture.
The biscuit stick was chocolate flavoured covered in mint chocolate.

Overall quite delicious if you like mint chocolates but the chocolate texture is a bit waxy.

[Review] 唯怡 Viee Nut beverage - Plant protein beverage

Tried the nut beverage which doesn't seem to have much English on it except the label.
The taste was thick and syrupy without any distinctive nut taste but according to the ingredients there were things like cashew nuts and walnuts etc.

Overall, I would like to see more English labelling on it before I recommend this drink.

[Review] Palacios Pizza Barbecue Creme

Tried Palacios Pizza Barbecue Creme which can be microwaved as well as reheated in the oven.
Unfortunately, I didn't find it impressive as the sauce was very sweet and the pizza base was rather chewy and tough.

[Review] Gold-pak Yamagata Cherry Ice Bar

Tried the Gold-pak Yamagata Cherry Ice Bar which is just frozen cherry ice.
To be honest, it tasted like frozen cherry cordial so it was quite sweet.
As well as cherry, there are other flavours.

Koikeya Feel Aloha Chips coconut & salt

I was captivated by the interesting coconut and salt crisps by Koikeya which has this Hawaiian design on the packaging.
Sadly the taste was awful.
While I was expecting a savoury taste, it was sweet so I can imagine the mango and butter flavour by Koikeya to taste bad!

[Review] Calbee Basil and Black Pepper Chips

I love Basil so I was really looking forward to the Basil and Black pepper crisps by Calbee.
It is quite strange to pair black pepper with basil because basil is an aromatic herbs that doesn't really need other spices to go with it.

Sadly, the black pepper was prominent so I couldn't really taste the basil.
The texture of these crisp were rather hard.

Overall, I would not recommend these crisp but by all means black pepper lovers will love it.

[Review] Greggs Festive Bake

Greggs have launched some captivating items for Christmas like the Pigs in Blanket Baguette, Festive Bake and Mint Chocolate drink.

I was hoping to get the festive bake at Greggs but there was a long queue so ended up getting it Iceland and you get a free coffee as well with your next purchase at greggs.
At first I was really excited because when I saw the picture I thought it was festive drink but it does clearly say coffee.

Tried the festive bake at home which contains succulent pieces of chicken breast, sage & onion stuffing and sweet cure bacon in a creamy sage and cranberry sauce.

Overall, I loved it especially the creamy sage with sage and onion which make it festive, however the cranberry sauce was not that prominent.

Will definitely try the pigs in blanket baguette soon along with the hot mint chocolate.


[Review] Asda Fresh Cream Swiss Roll

I was at Asda hoping to buy the new Toffee apple cheese but it wasn't available yet so ended up getting the Asda Fresh Cream Swiss Roll.

The Swiss roll was soft and fluffy and the star of the show was the fresh cream, however the jam was a bit sweet.
