Power to the Purple

Brand: Innocent Cost: £1 Found at: Tesco   This tastes suspiciously like a cocktail. So suspiciously, that I actually checked the label to make sure that I had not inadvertently signed myself up for a boozy lunch. But I’ve always been a lover of a mocktail: from a virgin piña colada to a Sherly Temple,... Continue Reading →

Kagoshima Chirancha

Brand: Satshumarché Found at: Bokkusu   Is a tea bag a snack? Debatable. Do I brew tea like it's free? Oh, most definitely. So today, I’ve decided to post about tea, as a blatant affront to all the excellent tea blogs out there who do a much better job and describing tea than I do.... Continue Reading →

Super Smoothie Cacao & Cherry

Brand: Innocent Cost: £1 Found at: Tesco I'm low-key shook. Maybe it's because I'm a grumpy old curmudgeon who is suspicious of everything, but I was certain that this would disappoint. Anything healthy that even implies chocolate and I am out. It's either not healthy or not chocolate and either way, I'm not buying it.... Continue Reading →

Powdered Black Sesame Dessert

Brand: Torto Cost: 38 KR Found At: Asian Market When I first moved to a foreign country (in China, back in 2014), I was completely overwhelmed.

Sparkling Water

Brand: Xtra Cost: 7.95KR Found at: Coop   My college trip to Romania was done on the shoestring budget of the eternal optimist. It was the kind of budget that assumed that all food would be free, all housing cheap, and all transport unnecessary. To this day, I still underbudget any trip I go on,... Continue Reading →

Oatly Oat Drink- Deluxe

Brand: Oatly Cost: 28KR Found at: Coop   My first week living on my own, I went out and did a massive food shop. The grocery store was not nearby, I didn’t have a car, and I didn’t know the bus routes, so I stumbled home under the weight of all my groceries, sweating and... Continue Reading →

Peach Orange Carbonated Water

Brand: Pirrig Cost: 10.95KR Found at: Coop I am not someone who should be giving advice. My life is a collection of classic blunders based on fundamentally flawed logic. That being said, if forced against my better judgment to give advice, I would give the following:   Do not go running.   If you do... Continue Reading →

Green Smoothie One Day

Brand: Natural Lawson Cost: 198 Found at: Lawson Up to this point, I have been spoiled in my smoothie experiences. To say that this is awful is perhaps being too generous. In fact, I’m not sure that this is as much a smoothie as it is a salad that happened to fall into a blender.... Continue Reading →

Lipovitan D Challenge Cup

Brand: Taisho Medicine Cost: 157 yen Found at: Family Mart   A biologist friend is doing research on seasonal effective disorder on fish. She told me about it over dinner – how the summer fish cluster together and socialize together in one tank, and the winter fish flee to their separate sides to avoid their... Continue Reading →
