Puffy Mystery Animal Treats

14 Apr

My friend, Rodrigo Soares, discovers the cutest things ever. Last week, he shared this picture of these adorable snacks. Someone has delicately painted on cute animal faces. Okay, the picture had no label or description, but I’m convinced they’re edible! Question is, what’s the texture…chewy, crumbly? What’s the level of sweetness (surely, they are sweet)? Is there a filling like red bean paste? If you can solve this mystery, please share with me! Thank you.


Hello Kitty Sweets in Taipei, Taiwan

10 Apr

Hello, Sweets. Hello Kitty Sweets. When my friend Amy told me about some cafe that specializes in Hello Kitty, in my wildest imagination, I couldn’t have guessed the extent of pink, frothy, glorious, kitty-liciousness that oozes from this ridiculously adorable cafe. Cakes are in the shape of Hello Kitty. Jello is in the shape of Hello Kitty. Burger buns are toasted with an imprint of Hello Kitty. Even the tops of your creme brulee is burned in the sillhouette of Hello Kitty. Surely, the furniture is carved from sugar cubes too? Could be, but the backs of the booths are definitely the shape of Hello Kitty. If this is the effect of looking at photos, I can’t imagine the endorphin rush I’d get by stepping foot into the cafe. It’s officially on my travel wish list.

Hello Kitty Sweets is located in Taipei, Taiwan.

Hi–I’m Sharon, and I’m a Snackaholic

9 Jul

It’s true–I’m a self-confessed snackaholic. Whether it’s sweet, savory, or tart, I live for those little treats. I’m writing this blog to chronicle my sweet encounters of all the treats I have loved before…and all the treats I can’t wait to try! Beyond flavors, one thing I enjoy about snacks is when they come in exaggerated sizes of the original!

Giant Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich

Haribo Mini Gold Bears–the mini-est gummy bears!

Giant Pocky

Big Bite Gummy Bear (Cost Plus)

When my friend Khathi introduced me to this ridiculously large gummy bear, I knew I had to buy one for my friend Ali Tahmasbi who is obsessed with gummies (more than me). After the shock of the sheer size of this gummy bear wore off, he discovered a crazy fact–this gummy has 1.15k calories! The package literally said, “1.15k”! I mean, the calorie count was so high that the manufacturer couldn’t even fit all the zeros on there. And I guess because it is only one gummy bear, you can only reference one serving. HAHA. Anyway, I told him to text me when he takes his first bite. I think we are on Day 4 of Giant Gummy Bear Abstinence, but I have a feeling it won’t last long! 😉
