things I'm liking (disliking)

takatsuki562012 (8) It's been awhile since I've did a post on things I'm liking (and disliking)...

Starting with disliking...this milk tea, while I liked that they used earl grey, it was way too sweet.

maranatha And I love Maranatha's products, but they use palm oil in these...that aside, these are still wonderful tasting.

zakkoku2 I put a schmear on puffed rice cake for a quick snack.

zakkoku Which brings me to the puffed rice cakes...I love these puffed rice cakes.

No additives in these, just puffed grains like millet, rice, sesame seeds & salt.

aerial This puffed snack, called Aerial, it tastes like Bugles, one of my FB friends said it looked like a huge Cap'n Crunch...it does.

giant next Giant Next by Glico, this is a drumstick type of ice cream with chocolate layers throughout.

I love the Giant brand because they coat their cones with chocolate to prevent sogginess too.

takatsuki562012 (10) Oreo's uji matcha latte...Uji matcha is a "brand" of green tea, which comes from the Uji area of Kyoto...green tea cream sandwiched between two soft chocolate oreo cookies...yum!

abientot Ogura Sabo, a brioche type bread filled with sweet bean paste, black beans and a pistachio almond cream.

I toasted this and didn't put anything on it. I liked the varying sweetness from the different ingredients.

osaka5312 (2) And lastly, how cute is this pink Fiat 500?!

What are you liking these days?

Hi Kat - I'm liking that you're back blogging again! Though that "drumstick" and oreo takes a distant second and third. ;o)

Mmmmm the Oreos look yummy! Do you know if you can get them all over Japan or are they a Kyoto speciality?

K and S said...

I think you can find them around Japan, Susie.

Take care.

Oh that oreo and brioche especially. Funny to see that Fiat because just last night I was watching a program on how much the japanese love italian food products and such. On the flip side of the coin, every few months there's always an article on sushi in the monthly magazine of my favorite store!

K and S said...

that is cool about sushi your magazines! Rowena :)

Take care.

I wish we had different types of oreo cookies here in the USA. A green tea flavor sounds delicious!

I wish I had been able to try their 100th anniversary version Genki :)

Take care.
