Hi everyone! Last week I went back to Newcastle and discovered my favourite Chinese supermarket is stocking lots of tasty Japanese treats – one of them is annoyingly upside down in the picture. I bought a Hello Kitty strawberry Yan Yan (I tried buying other Yan Yans but they just aren’t as nice as the Hello Kitty ones), a cola and soda flavour chew, some Hello Kitty fruit sweets, some Chinese strawberry gummies, Fujiya Anpanman grape gummies, strawberry mochi and a mini Meiji chocolate selection. The little packets of chocolate are so cute and small. It was nice to try a few different types without worrying about buying a big packet and not liking them.
I love the Apollo strawberry cones, which I’ve had before, but I HATED the coffee ones. It’s only because I dislike coffee though, I’m sure they’re delicious to all you coffee fans. I’m still undecided about the Choco Baby ones as they tasted a bit cheap but the ones that look like smarties were delicious. The Fujiya Anpanman grape gummies were horrible though, really not to my taste at all. Although my boyfriend loved them. I loved everything else I tried so I’ll be buying more on my next jaunt to Newcastle.
I also treated myself to some more Ramune drinks. It’s a Japanese soda that I absolutely love. And I’m such a child I was completely sold by the novelty marble idea (there is a marble blocking the top that falls into the drink when you open it).
So, I think it’s time to maybe start hitting the gym with all this food.
I keep trying to eat healthy constantly but I always end up giving in to little treats. I think I’ll try eating Japanese food more often and learn to cook it better since their meals are so healthy and delicious.
Arigatou for reading, and happy eating
