[Nong Shim] Tuna Mayonnaise Series

While I was at the convenience store, the Tuna and Mayonnaise crisps caught my eyes.
Beside it were Tuna Mayonnaise cup noodles also by the same Korean Brand Nong Shim.

Decided to try the cup noodles because I was just curious about how it would taste.

Tuna Mayonnaise is normally a sandwich filling that is slightly creamy with chunks of tuna.

I can't read Korean so the English labelling was helpful and it was strange that the ingredients has Worchester sauce!!!!

When you peel the lid back, there are two sachets, one is the sauce and the other is some yellow thing.

There are some sort of brown bits within the noodles which I believe are possibly soya bits pretending to be tuna????

To eat, you remove the sachets, pour boiling water in the noodles.
Leave it for a while and drain the water.
There are holes at the other end of the lid which you pierce to drain.

The mayonnaise sachet was big and I was quite skeptical about the taste because that much mayonnaise is going to be really sickly.

The colour of the mayonnaise was strangely brown!!!
After mixing it, the sauce turned creamy yellow so there must be a lot of creamer in that paste!!

As for the taste, it definitely does not taste like sandwich filling but there is a strong creamer powder aftertaste in your mouth.

Not quite convinced by these noodles because they are a bit too sweet for my liking,

[Granny Marys] Just Collection

There are so many ready made meals to choose from these days.
Granny Marys JUST collection appealed to me because the logo was nice and being a graduate from QMUL I liked the Mary in the name.

The JUST collection does not have pasta/rice which is makes it great for sharing and they can be microwaved which saves up to 45 minutes of time and gas when you can have it almost in flash!!

Without thinking, I bought most of the range but sadly forgot to buy the Cottage Pie.

As soon as I got home, I was so excited to try them but sadly I could only try 2 boxes because they are quite big portions.
It was really hard to decide which one to try because they are all British classics.
Luckily, they don't stock the full range or I would probably have to buy it all!!!!
In the end I chose Chili Beef (with pulled beef) as it was pulled beef and not minced beef.

Basically you remove the card sleeve, pierce the film, microwave it for about 4 minutes, let it stand for 1 minute and put it in for another 3 minutes.
I paired the chili beef with Indian Rice.

The taste was fantastic with chunks of pulled beef but I underestimated how hot it was and it is spicier than other ready to eat chili con carnes and curries that I have tried.

I also tried the Parsnips in spiced honey because I have to try everything at once if I can because I just can't resist food and all being my favourite British classics!!

The parsnips were sweet with a nice hint of cracked black pepper.
The sweetness was quite soothing after that hot Chili Beef.
I can't wait to try the others soon but I am so busy with restaurant invitations that I don't have time and appetite to eat at home.

[Milka] Cake n Choc

Milka is a brand of chocolate which originated in Switzerland and now manufactured internationally by the US confectionery company Mondelēz International (formerly known as Kraft Foods).
The cake and chocolate bar hybrid was appealing so got it.

There are five cakes inside that are individually packaged in Silver plastic.

The taste was sweet and sugary.

[Charbonnel et Walker] Chocolates with a touch of Royalty

Founded in 1875, Charbonnel et Walker is one of Britain's earliest chocolatiers. Encouraged by Edward VII, (then the Prince of Wales), the company first formed as a partnership between Mrs Walker and Madame. Charbonnel hence the name Charbonnel et Walker.
They are endorsed by the Royal Warrant as one of the few chocolatiers to Her Majesty The Queen where iconic customers have included Princess Diana and Princess Margaret.
The chocolates are hand-made to the traditional recipes of Madame Charbonnel.  Their renowned dark chocolate is made from the finest dark couverture which results in a decadently rich taste.

Other chocolates in the range are really tempting.

[Walkers crisps] Bugles

Bugles are American corn snacks but now they are available under Walkers crisps in three flavours:
Southern BBQ, Sour cream and black pepper and cheese.

Southern BBQ:
The Southern bbq flavour tasted like prawn cocktail #skips with a hint of bbq.

Sour cream and black pepper:
The sour cream and black pepper was the lightest of the three flavours but moreish because the black pepper gives it a nice kick with the sour cream.

The cheese flavour tasted like hard baked cheese #quavers that melt in your mouth.

blk water

At the food expo, I saw some interesting black water.
blk water claims that blk. water contains both fulvic and humic acid (found in soil, sediment and aquatic environments). But neither fulvic acid or humic acid are required in humans. The addition of these two acids to water in no way enhances the nutritional benefits of water.
Anyway, I tried it and it tastes the same as water but psycologically it feels weird drinking black water because it looks dirty.

[Bad food gone good] Paleo Avocado Brownies

A while ago I won these Paleo Avocado Brownies by Bad food gone good.
It was my first time trying paleo brownies so I was really excited.
These avocado brownies were so good because they were soft and moist with a strong avocado taste and they were not too sweet.
If you look closely, you can see bits of green avocado in it.
