|Stocked up for winter|
Recently, I finished Witch Hunter Robin (as you've seen in a previous post), HOTD and I'm working my way through Gosick, so expect a review pretty soon.
Another thing I've been doing is finding and gathering all the goodies I can get to last me at least a few weeks though this semester as picture above. My inventory includes:
4 x ValNature Roasted Amond Bars
9 x Small Pocky Packets
1 x Reg. Pocky
1 x Empty Pringles Can =P
3 x Biscotti dipped in cholocate
1 x Milk Chocolate Candy
1 x Lotte Fruito Gum
1 x Atkins Adv. Bar
4 x NutriGrain Bar
1 x PreSk8 Energy Drink
1 x Nestle Instant Coffee
8 x Stride Gum
2 x Trident Splash Gum
A lengthy list, but I'll probably have to restock soon as I'm munching on Pocky like crazy.
For this post, I'm going to bring back something I did way back when I started the blog in May/June, which were reviews on foreign confectionery goods, mainly Japanese goodies. (You can ready them by clicking the links below)
This time, I review a Japanese Milk Coffee Candy from Tokuno. I picked up this piece from a local Asian market instead of ordering from J-list this time.
|How can you go wrong with anything coffee for university students?|
Well apparently, you can. The flavour and aroma of the candy is nothing mind blowing; it taste like any other coffee candy I've tried before. The "milk" aspect on the candy didn't really add or take away from the candy either. But my biggest pet peeve about this candy was the texture of it when it starts to dissolve. From the picture above, it's basically a puck shaped candy, but once it starts dissolving, cracks develop on it and the texture of the candy becomes awkward. For the Asian readers, it feels like dried scallops (pictured below).
Anyways, this is not one I can recommend, so I'll just suggest people to stick with whatever coffee candy you regularly buy, and stay away from this one.
What did you crave during your university/college studies? Do you like coffee candy? Any preference to a brand? Let me know in the comments below, and I'll see you guys soon!
