Pillsbury Cookie Cake

Tasted the Pillsbury Cookie cake. The vanilla one is salty; I found the chocolate one laced with Choco chips better. It’s soft, chewy and decently sweet; as in somewhere between cookie and brownie. Comes in single serving packs.

Price I feel is a little more compared to the quantity (Size of the cookie could be a little bigger). Reasonable price would make it a better option. Since I got the pack of 6 in Buy 1 Get 1 Free it sounded decent. Maybe buying each for 10 bucks is expensive.

Chocolate flavor is better than vanilla.IMG-20170614-WA0024

DesiVdesi- Chikoo Chips

Got to hear about this new version of crispy but not fried or baked and I was very curious to try that.  Got the products from DesiVdesi a food brand that is using natural techniques in keeping the snacks retain the nutrition. You can know more about them here

Tried their Chikoo Chips which are crispy, without any preservatives or added color. . Not very sweet which means no much sugar added. Makes a good option for kids who are fussy eaters. Maybe this version would tempt them to try this fruit.

It can be eaten on the go as it comes neatly packed in a zip pouch which means it stays fresh even after opening. Good for busy people as while travelling or on the go the fruit can become quite messy,as they have shelf life like a week or so,  this one comes handy. That also means it need not be finished once opened. Can be stored and the freshness retained.

Price I feel is a little on the higher side. Maybe if they do something about it, the snack would also capture the health conscious Indian market as most of us these days have known the importance of fitness and eating right.

Maggi Super Chennai Masala review

IMG-20170605-WA0012

After trying the Mumbaiya flavor we tried the Chennai style one. I just added tadka to it.Now for me it was a fusion like Sāmbhar rice meeting noodles. The noodles tasted like Sāmbhar rice with curry leaves and tamarind extract. Maybe we can co relate the flavors but I didn’t find them very interesting.

It was like eating Maggi with Sāmbhar and no I didn’t like the combination much. I feel such classic flavors infused in Maggi are not that great an idea. Maggi classic flavors are the best and I feel they should let it be that way.

Maggi Mumbaiya Chatak- Review

Hi all,

Long time I have been shamelessly ignoring this space. Let’s say that I was being just plain lazy. After being so lazy for so long today I thought of coming out of hibernation. Well Maggi made me come out.

Recently tried the Maggi Mumbaiya Chatak one. Disappointed I was to say the least. I was expecting for something related to Mumbai in flavors but was sad that I didn’t find anything close to Mumbai in that. I feel its over priced at 20 bucks and the net quantity less than 80 gms. Doesn’t make sense or is filling.

The new range of flavors that Maggi has come up with the barbeque, green chilly one etc. I feel nothing has made a mark. None of the flavors have been hitting the note. The good old original Maggi is still the best.

Yet to try the Amritsari, Chennai and Bengal one. Hope atleast they don’t disappoint.

Gits Brown Rice Dosa – My review

The other day I got the pack of goodies from Gits to try and I tried brown rice dosa. I was very apprehensive as I felt I won’t be able to spread the dosa as crispy as the grinded batter one.  But this one surprised me with its ability to become crisp, golden brown as normal dosa.

This is a boon for people who have no time to make breakfast elaborately. This has a home touch plus the gourmet one. Perfect for a small family and filling too. Affordable as this comes cheaper than eating out and not to forget healthy too. Also brown rice is nutritious and the instructions are also very easily to follow.

 

I would definitely pick this or recommend for a rush day when you want the home cooked one but don’t have the batter.

Brown Rice Dosa

 

Gits is a home name now with so many products on their name successfully. I love their Gulab Jamun mix, Rabri and Basundi to name a few and they have never disappointed me.

 

I would rate this 4/5. Keep up the great work Gits.

Paper Boat Chikki My review

whatsapp-image-2017-02-02-at-15-39-56

When I read about this chikki I was surprised. I love chikkis . Being close to Lonavala, Khandala the hub for these nutty yummy products, chikkis transports me back to my childhood.

Trains are an integral part of childhood. I still remember the ghat section and the tunnels that’s between Mumbai and Pune. The curves, the waterfalls, the chikkis. Yes, these used to be sold in the stations and always had a great demand. We used to look forward for these fresh ones which is a blend of jaggery and ground nuts. We also used to get coconut based, sesame based etc. but the groundnut one was the one that was mostly loved.

This Paper Boat has the same taste and crunch. Priced at a mere 10 bucks this one is way better than chocolates as nuts and jaggery is a healthy and nutritious combo. For a person with sweet tooth, a bite of these after meals won’t hurt.

They come in a handy pack so introducing them to kids instead of chocolate would be great in terms of nutritional value. Loved this, alongside their other products like aamras, panakam etc. which connects us to the childhood memories. If taste and memories can take us back in time, this one surely does.

Hoping and wishing Paper Boat all the best for their future endeavors and hoping they keep coming up with more such great array of products.
