M&M's White Chocolate Carrot Cake [Limited Edition]

I never thought I would see the day, when there would be M&M's with carrot cake filling.
But alas, it is Easter, and here they are.
I see what they did here.
At Easter, there are Easter bunnies.
And bunnies eat carrots.
And in human terms, that makes carrot cake?
It seems like a weird combination.
But I like carrot cake, so why not?

The packaging is sexy, in a way an M&M packaging could be considered sexy.
And features the green female M&M with bunny ears.
It also has a nice yellow Easter color.
And of course, lots of text proclaiming the artificial flavors.
Like we would believe they crammed carrot cakes into those tiny M&M's.

The M&M's are based on white chocolate and comes in yellow, green and red pastel colors.
Upon opening the bag, you are treated to a deep smell of carrot cake.
Yes, it actually smells like carrot cake.
But, I do not know if the inside of the bag has gotten a scent boost.
Because each individual M&M does not smell that much.
Still, it is a nice smell.

The taste, well... They taste kind of like carrot cake.
I am not used to carrot cake with this much cinnamon in it.
It still is av very cake like taste and I like it.
Sadly, after a few pieces, the white chocolate starts to take over.

Happy Easter to all of you!

Maxim Café Menu Oreo

Oreoflavoured coffe?
Go ahead and take my money.
Maxim and Oreo decided to put their best minds together and they came up with this.
Small pouches of joy.

All you have to do is boil some water.
Pour the water in a cup.
Open the pouch and add the powder to the water, Then stir.
What you are left with is a bubbly café latte.

I think that the packaging has managed to capture the Oreo spirit.
It has a nice blue colour palette. I really like it.

It has a nice smell of café latte but also of something else.
It is a nice smell.
But what about the taste?

It is sweet, so sweet. To sweet.
I can not taste anything resembling Oreo.
It is simply to sweet.
It is a shame really.
This could have been som much better.

Rusti Chips Sirtaki Tzatziki Flavour [Limited Edition]

March is two weeks in, and still no post from this blog?
That is bad, very bad.
So why not write about potato chips with tzatziki flavouring?

What is that you say?
That sounds like a good idea?
Well All-righty-then.

These are made by Rusti Chips, based in Germany.
I like greek food.
And I especially like a good Tzatziki to go with my greek food.

The round Pringles, sorry... Rusti Chips container is very neat.
The chips are being thrown at you by the greek flag.
There is also some ancient greek ruins pictured on the packaging.
Will these chips be the ruin of me?

For those of you that are interested, Sirtaki is a popular dance from greece.
So, if you are in the mood for dancing potato chips, these are for you.

Upon opening the container, you are greated with the strong smell of tzatziki.
And that is great, that is just what we want them to smell like.
The taste, is unfortunately a bit more tame.
It tastes more like garlic than tzatziki.
But they are still nice and would probably do nice as an add-on snack for your greek dinner.
