Omnipotence biscuits

A coworker who also appreciates trying strange Chinese foods stopped by my desk and showed me a biscuit he'd found on the snacks table in the cafeteria. Being a glutton, I had to have one too. These are a slightly sweet, heavy and solid block. I quite liked them and headed back to have another.

Six biscuits are vacuum packed into the foil bag. I like foil vacuum packed bags, it gives me the confidence in a fresh product.

I didn't enjoy eating these the second time, and ended up throwing them away. Sensations of salt and recycled cardboard occupied my thoughts as I ate them. In a way, they remind me of the bumper bars that Cookie Time do back in New Zealand - now I could go for some of those.


  1. No way, bumper bars are yummy (mmm apricot-chocolate and banana chocolate) and don't resemble the China-fair that's been delighting your palate ;)

    BTW hi Richard. Very interesting reading your adventures in Mainland China. Reminds me a little of when we were in Taiwan about 3-4 years back.

  2. Hi. I really post because my memory is awful so that I have some way to remember not to buy most of the awful drek I try! :-) Glad other people are finding it interesting.
