Food: Fage Yogurt

with one comment

So when I was working at Whole Foods, this was literally the top selling item at every Whole Foods every single week, and I would always think to myself why is everybody flipping out over fat free yogurt? I figured it was some super health thing (which I guess it is since 1/2 a cup has a whopping 12 grams of protein) but when I finally started asking customers about it, all they said was just taste it and I would know why.

So one day on my lunch break I tried it and since then I have been spending waaay too much money on it ever since. Fage which is a staple in greek diets, has a special way of being strained that makes it look and taste like yogurt made with whole milk and a billion calories only its fat free and like 80 calories. Its super creamy and mild and totally amazing with fruit or honey. It sounds silly to obsess over something like yogurt but seriously if you try it you will  see why it has a cult following. The only bad side is a single serving cup costs around 2 bucks and like a 5 serving tub will run you almost 6, pricey but delicious.

Food: Milky

leave a comment »

When I was little and whenever we went to Japan, the first thing I would ask for was this candy called Milky” The packaging has a little girl with pigtails sticking out her tongue to the side and I remember always doing that when I was little just like her, that was my way of being cute and getting the candy. Recently Ive seen it more and more in asian grocery stores in america which is so exciting! There really isn’t any candy in the US like it.

They always come in super cute pink or yellow wrappers and its inbetween a hard and a soft candy, so you always try to chew but then your teeth end up stuck together.Overall it basically tastes like sweetened condensed milk in ball form. I can’t really tell if I love Milky so much because it tastes good or really because it reminds me of my childhood maybe a little of both but I know one thing for sure, there are few things that make me happier then randomly finding a bag of Milky at a grocery store.

Food:Chupa Chups

with 2 comments

If I had my way Chupa Chups would be part of the four major food groups.  I could eat Chupa Chups all day long everyday! Luckily I have a rather hard time finding them around, otherwise I probably wouldn’t have any teeth left.

With flavors like Peach Yogurt, Strawberry Vanilla and Choco Vanilla, they tower in awesomeness over all lollipop competitiors! Plus their sticks are straws which for some reason I think is really cool.

But you want to know the biggest reason why Chupa Chups are so obsession worthy? It’s because one of the greatest artists in the history of the universe created the Chupa Chups logo. Salavador Dali. I mean seriously they could have tasty flavors and straw sticks, but when you have Salvador Dali designing your logo, that just enters a whole different universe of cool.
