Mentos - Fresh Cola
Packaging: 4/5 simple && direct (should have taken a picture of the “tube”)
Price: 5/5 $9.9 HKD = $1 ish CAD (for 2 and a mini stapler...STEAL)
Taste: 3/5 typical asian cola candy flavor in mentos form...don’t know what I was expecting... lol
Re-purchase? maybe... undecided...
Matcha Soft Candy
Packaging: 5/5 brilliant the outside packaging is quite eye-catching and aesthetically appealing, makes you want the product first. Then when you open it and the it’s kinda simple but you try it anyways because you’ve already bought it and BAM yum =D
Price: 4/5 $15 HKD = $1 almost $2 CAD but if you buy it in Canada it’s $4-$5
Taste: 5/5 very unique =] at first bite you get an extremely bitter matcha powder flavor, but after awhile it turns into a sweet and soft creamy toffee like candy. After a few, the bitter matcha flavor becomes very enjoyable and you try to savor it!!!
Re-purchase? YES so good!!! gotta stock up in HK
side note: The picture on the packaging it fairly accurate of the product, but you don’t have to worry about the candy being messy, because all the powder is stuck on nicely and not as “loose”.
Coffee Soft Candy
Packaging: 5/5 same as above, but the inside packaging matches the coffee flavor very well IMO, has a coffee shop feel~
Price: 4/5 same as above
Taste: 5/5 the bitterness to sweet isn’t as extreme as the matcha, but has a very strong coffee flavor. Even my aunt and uncle... picky coffee lovers enjoyed it!!!
Re-purchase? Definitely =D
side note: the coffee and matcha candy would be perfect drama candy, there’s always a girl that uses candy to get rid of her frustrations!!! The bitter taste would be her anger, and the sweet flavor would calm her down =] hehe
Kinda Bueno - White
Packaging: 4/5 simple, direct and consistent with the original
Price: 5/5 $6HKD = not even $1 CAD, so same as Dollarama pricing
Taste: 4/5 I use to be OBSESSED with Kinder Bueno, I bought boxes from Costco... but of course with so many, I eventually got sick of the flavor. The Bueno White is slightly sweeter then the original, and has a barely noticable sensation your mouth. It’s because it’s decorated with tiny cookie or chocolate crumbs, at the same time it worries me because it can get stuck in between your teeth =p haha
Re-purchase? not immediately, my sweet tooth for bueno has decreased, but it’s a nice treat once every blue moon =]
Lotte - Any Time
Packaging: 3/5 based off of the individual packaging, haven’t bought the bag yet, was given a generous handful =p It’s simple, in a pretty shade of blue teal and shiny =] and I like shiny stuff. Unfortunately it doesn’t really state what the candy is, but once you taste it, you kinda get the packaging...
Price: don’t know yet, will update once I buy a couple bags =]
Taste: 5/5 So unique, it’s 2 hard mint candies sandwiching a milk one, like nothing I’ve ever tasted =0 Absolutely delicious, I’m quite surprised how nicely these 2 strong flavors work together, definitely worth trying!!!
Re-purchase? YES, very nice twist on milk candy, because sometimes it can leave your mouth with a slight aftertaste, but mixed with mint, you get a fresh breath.
Calbee- Garlic Bread Grill-a-Corn
Packaging: 5/5 I like that it shows the product, shows the flavor and is in a matte coating, which stands out amongst the other brands of chips, which usually have a shine. In terms of the actual package design, it’s VERY tightly sealed with a lot of air, so you don’t get a lot of crushed pieces, but it’s also kinda hard to open.
Price: 5/5 $5.9 HKD = >$1 CAD very good
Taste: 2/5 The first couple you taste will have a very nice garlic butter flavor, after a couple more, all you get is corn. When you’re done, the garlic flavor although you no longer taste it, lingers in your mouth for a long time, gum only “numbed” the flavor temporarily lol
Re-purchase? NO, I rather eat garlic bread =]
Calbee - Hot & Spicy Grill-a-Corn
Packaging: 5/5 same as above, not as spicy as the flavor picture suggests
Price: 5/5 same as above
Taste: 5/5 YUM, It’s nice and spicy, and not the kind of spicy that numbs your taste buds. Very good combo, you can taste both the corn and spices =]
Re-purchase? yes, very good =]
