things I'm liking (disliking)

DSC03330 Random things I'm liking and disliking....starting with disliking.

While this ginger ale made by Nose (no-say) Shuzo, a local brewery, is made with natural spring water from Nose, there is no indication of "fresh" ginger in here, just flavoring...boo!

IMG_3188 I'm liking that most convenience stores have started serving freshly brewed coffee. Before, you could only buy brewed coffee in cans or in pre-packaged plastic cups.

The price is nice on the pocket too by being a little cheaper than those big chain types.

DSC03366 Kinda in the middle about these chocolates by ION, a Greek chocolate.

The milk chocolate is too sickly sweet and there isn't enough whole almonds (bottom of photo). Though I do like the hazelnut cream in between of the wafers (top of the photo).

DSC03337 This umeshu (apricot liqueur) that I received from Hiromi, was delicious. (Thank you!)

We enjoyed it several times, pouring a little of it into a cup and diluting it with some soda water.

IMG_3437 And I am really liking these cute glass yogurt pots.

They are made in Japan and each holds about 90 mililiters. They also have a plastic cover which I didn't take a photo of. I put some fruit, yogurt and topped everything off with a little homemade granola. With picnic season coming soon, I can't wait to bring these along.

What are you enjoying these days?
