Junk food update

Just the junk food photos that have accumulated on my camera recently.

I went into City Shop with the idea of buying some Cadbury chocolate. They didn't have any, but they did have a range of interesting Milka flavours. This was probably for the best, as Cadbury has unfortunately come to favour lower production costs over actually making a product worth eating. Ever since the debacle where they moved production of their Chocolate to Australia, and decreased the actual.. chocolate in their chocolate replacing it with palm oil or some similar thing, I cannot muster the interest to buy their "chocolate".

Anyway, yogurt chocolate. It just sounds right. I think this was ~21 RMB.

And it looks pretty promising. Unfortunately, the flavour is somewhat nondescript. I expect a yogurt product to be tangy and more yogurty. But I guess when you approximate it as a chocolate bar filling, you can only get so close. Still, it was worth trying and I wouldn't say I wouldn't buy it again.

One thing I used to buy, everytime I flew back home for Xmas was Daim candies. You couldn't buy them there. So Daim flavoured chocolate seems like a natural thing to do. I think this was also ~21 RMB.

But really, if you can actually buy Daim candies, I don't know why you would buy this. Daim candies are simply more "Daimy" than this hybrid product. But still, lacking ability to source the candies, this is a reasonably priced simulacrum.

I felt like something chocolatey. So I chose this, as it was relatively reasonably priced at ~12 RMB if I recall correctly.

The flavour and sensation of eating these, was simply that of eating some cocoa flavoured factory product. There was no pleasure in the act, and doing so made me think of some factory floor where they pressed these out of some slop.

I am heading back to City Shop tomorrow, so I'll try and limit myself to one block of Milka. Assuming there are flavours I have not tried yet.
