Snacks | Imuraya Matcha Tsubuan Monaka

This snack is a must have. For $3.40, I guess it was worth the first time experience of biting into this green tea ice cream/red bean/wafer snack. It’s summer time here in Australia and I am melting. I couldn’t be bothered waiting for my train for 17 minutes (because… Sydney Trains… nuff said) so I decided to go shopping.

Didn’t go far as I discovered TongLi supermarket in Auburn Central.

They have so much green tea products in there! The products are so much cheaper than the Korean store in Lidcombe where I bought my tub of green tea ice cream.

It looks just like the picture on the package! And for that, I am super impressed. It tasted as good as it looked!

It’s interesting because I didn’t get brain freeze at all whilst biting into this. I guess it’s because of the wafer that surrounds it that protects your teeth?

9.5/10 would highly recommend and eat it again!

As for the nutritional content…

I put the nutrition and ingredients list in there in case anyone wants to check it out but has dietary restrictions.

Can’t wait to try out more of Tong Li’s cheap green tea snacks!

Facts About Me

  1. Favourite number is 3.
  2. I’m the eldest of 3 sisters.
  3. I’m a free bird! I love being spontaneous and random and surprising people!
  4. I’ve only been camping once in my entire life. And that was to a study camp held by my school.
  5. I once lost $200 of my scholarship money on my phone bill because I went over my mobile data limit.

My answers to Rona’s Questions

 

  1. Where have you travelled? Where do you want to go next?
    Places here and there in Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Japan.
    Next place would be… hmmm Middle East! Didn’t see that one coming did you?
  2. Does your town/city require you to recycle? What kind of recycling system do you have in your house? (yeah, I’m looking for ideas ‘coz my system isn’t working)
    I suppose so. But you don’t get fined if you don’t recycle. In Sydney, there are three types of bins: Red is for general waste, Yellow is for recycling and Green is for plant material.
  3. Why did the chicken cross the road?
    To die and cross over to the ‘other side’.
  4. What did you learn from your first crush/ first love?
    Imaginations can go way too far.
  5. What do you think you will be doing 10 years from now?
    God knows really… hopefully not doing drugs.
