Junk food update

They have these biscuits occasionally at work. They have a nice peachy aromatic flavour.

However, it is interesting to put them on the box and compare them to the picture. I am reminded of that species of rat or monkey they feed coffee beans to and then make coffee out of its feces. Still, eaten worse looking food.

There's a vending machine conveniently placed outside the gym at the new hotel I am staying in. The food in there actually looks quite nice, and is reasonably priced. That reminds me.. the help left a photocopied menu for the hotel restaurant on my desk. I was almost tempted to eat there until I saw the 15% service charge note nested somewhere on the page. That feels disingenuous, like they are charging more money but want to make it look cheaper.

I bought these assuming they would taste like the plums back home. Basically dried fruit. However, they are actually dried with pips still inside. And flavoured in a salty and sweet way. Stops you eating them too fast I guess. They cost 2 RMB.

These are kind of equivalent to chips I guess.

These were 3 RMB per packet. Had an okay flavour, and there were a decent number of pieces in the packet to make it worth buying. Didn't taste much like anything that I could name though.
