KEX

Brand: Cloetta Cost: 7.95KR Found at: Coop   The Swedish are very Kex positive. And Kex is very Swedish positive.   This chocolate bar is absolutely a Swedish institution. Launched in 1921, it’s like a deconstructed Kit-Kat bar: a crisp chocolate wafer covered in smooth milk chocolate. And yet, it's deeply associated with sports –... Continue Reading →

Passionfruit

Cost: 6.95KR Found at: Coop I’d heard about passionfruit before. In fact, I’d assumed that I’d eaten it before. It is the kind of thing you hear about – the kind of thing which other things are flavored as: passionfruit gum, passionfruit ice cream, 2-in-1 passionfruit hair shampoo and revitalizer. It seemed unlikely that I... 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.

Libera – Bitter

Brand: Glico Cost: 162 yen Found At: 7-11 It is my thin privilege to state that I don’t believe in “reduced fat” candy. It’s the same reason that I don’t believe in vegetarian bacon. It’s not that these things are bad, but I don’t approve of trying to make one thing into another thing. Inevitably,... Continue Reading →

Sesame Barley Tea

Brand: Suntory Cost: 140 yen Found At: Family Mart   Do you ever innocently buy a bottle of tea only to discover that it is actually a high-blood pressure treatment? There I was, innocently reaching for a bottle of sesame tea, and now I’m improving my heart health. As usual, it seems I have accidently... Continue Reading →
