Hello Kitty Choco Treasure Quick Review

Hello Kitty Egg-1

Hello Kitty Choco Treasure (Chocolate + Toy Surprise) Quick Review:

  • Chocolate is on the plastic egg shell
  • It was enjoyable to unwrap the Hello Kitty wrapper
  • Chocolate taste was ok, nothing to be excited about.  I think kids would like it.
  • The prize is a roll of Hello Kitty stickers.

I don’t know if all prizes are stickers though.  I can tell you that I won’t buy another one to find out.  If I have a kid to give to, then I would reconsider.

Hello Kitty Marshmallow Matcha Flavor

Hello Kitty Matcha (Green Tea) Marshmallow

The marshmallow has a firmness to it.  The filling inside is the matcha (green tea).
This was a bit too sweet for my taste.  I only ate 3 of these and had to put them away.  It really tasted just purely sugar.  Kids would seem to like it because of it being so sweet.  I say skip this if you see it at your local oriental store.

Spicy soy sauce and vinegar (dipping sauce):

You can also drizzle the dripping sauce on the white rice.

First Bloom of 2019

The orchid is blooming.  This is the first bloom of the year.

I am just in awe seeing just days ago that it had buds.  I didn’t expect to see it bloom today.

I got this orchid a year ago.  I thought I would eventually kill it.  Just like how I have killed so many other plants in the past. Yes, including a cactus, from over watering it.  So for this flower to survive and now blooming, is just amazing!

As you have read in my previous blog, I’ve been trying to avoid eating the Hello Kitty cookies.  Two week later, I finally have taken the cookies out of the box and unwrapped them.

Please keep in mind that I ate it 2 weeks after I had bought it.  So my opinions below may have been a bit better if I had eaten it right away.

It is as pretty as what a Hello Kitty cookie could be.  I didn’t have that much expectation as you may have previously read, I saw these cookies as novelty items rather than actual food.   The experience of eating something so cute!  That type of novelty!

I have finally taken a bite.  A few bites later, I had to put it down.  Let me explain…

The cookie was really sweet. It’s too sweet that it would be good to drink coffee to complement its sweetness.  I took a few bites and I had to put it down.  It was just really sweet for me.

The cookie itself was crumbly.  Not as fresh as I had hoped.  But then that’s my fault for not eating it right away.  Maybe next time I’d eat it right away.

Overall I think the cookie was still ok.  But if I had a chance to go back to the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck, then I would prefer to buy the Hello Kitty Macarons again instead of the cookies.

But I got to admit though, these cookies are much cuter than the macarons!
