Happy Easter dearest reader! Weeks ago I announced that I will cease posting food-related content on my blog as well as on my social media due to the enhanced community quarantine. It hasn’t been lifted yet and was in fact extended. After being in a dark place, I somewhat found a light making me feel a bit better. With that, I thought of going back to blogging and making videos. I roamed the house for some inspiration and realised I haven’t shared my favourite snack.
Have you heard of HELL? No, not the village in Norway and most definitely not the place you’re thinking of. I’m talking about the HELL Energy Drink, a 100% Hungarian-owned brand which was established in 2006. The brand dominated the domestic market by 2010 and is now exporting in 50 countries one of which is the Philippines. HELL Energy Drink has a variety of flavours available in 250ml cans. According to their website, they have HELL Classic, Strong Apple, Strong Red Grape, Strong Cola, Zero Sugar, Zero Strawberry, Strong Focus, Active, Multi+, Ice Cool Pear, Ice Cool Plum, Summer Cool – Strawberry Kiwi, Summer Cool Pineapple Lime as well as some Energy Coffee such as Cappuccino, Slim Latte and Latte.
I was on a mission to find Selecta’s Mochi Ku ice cream. Let’s back it up a bit. The Pat kid Inside, one of my fellow bloggers posted a photo of mochi filled with vanilla ice cream on his Instagram account. It looked lovely and being a loyal customer of 7-Eleven, I was surprised I didn’t see that product. But soon I realised that I wasn’t craving for ice cream because of the cold weather. And now that I am, I decided to find this beautiful Selecta Mochi Ku ice cream. There are six 7-Eleven stores near me but only one of them never failed me.
Jollibee’s seasonal Tuna Pie is back just in time for the start of the Lent. In case you didn’t notice, the fast-food giant brings back their famous Tuna Pie before the season of reflection and preparation for Easter begins. I think I was in college when this pie was released. Growing up in a strict Catholic family, I would observe fasting and abstinence. This simply means we do not eat red meat on all Fridays. Since I was studying at that time, Jollibee Tuna Pie became my go-to meal when I get hungry.
I don’t like mayonnaise that much unless it’s on tuna sandwich or an egg sandwich. I’m also not a fan of dips and sauces. For me, if the food tastes good then there is no need for those. I just don’t want to ruin a perfect dish. But after discovering Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise, I have a change of heart. This unique savoury dip which contains real eggs and high-quality oil; not to mention Omega 3 and 6 is delicious. It also has a creamy texture. When I dipped in a piece of crispy fried chicken, it did not overpower the taste of the dish. Instead, it complements the crispy fried chicken.
