I opened the can and… sniffed it. It definitely smelled like a cucumber.

Then I took a sip. Yep. Tasted like a cucumber too. But where did the citrus go? Barely a hint.

I don’t hate cucumbers, but… eh… *shakes head*

VERDICT: It’s… slurpable. Not a fan though. Definitely fresh, but I also kept it in the fridge overnight so it was coooooold. I like it cold.

Moose Tries New Nomz: SweeTARTS ROPES Bites

When I saw these… I thought I had to get them!

This type of candy has been one of my favorites since I was a kid, which also means that I had moosepectations.

One of them being… it moose be tasty!

Also, it’s a product of Mexico. Interesting…

When I opened the bag, I was unimpressed by the sugar covering the candy. It’s not clear on the package that it’s covered with it, but ok. Whatever.

The candy pieces were also a bit smaller than moosepected, but that’s not an issue.

Finally…. the taste.

Orange ones do taste like orange. A little bit sour.

Green ones taste like apple, also a little bit sour, but less so than the orange ones.

Now the red and… less red? ones are supposed to be cherry and strawberry, but I really couldn’t tell which is which just by looking at them. The taste difference is also only slight… Difficult to say which is which after eating them.

Blue ones are named as blue punch… clearly, that’s not a fruit or vegetable… so what is it??? Cannot be identified by tasting it. Just… something… Not a bad taste though. I guess.

VERDICT: Didn’t meet any of my moosepectations. Not really anything special. I’ve had much better tasting candy before, including other candy of this type. Definitely not worth it for the price paid! Nearly 15 ringgit!

Moose Tries New Nomz: Rowntrees Randoms And Pick And Mix

More sweets! I didn’t plan on buying these, but… 50% OFF! So why not? *shrugs*

Rowntrees Fruit Gums Randoms And Pick And Mix

Rowntrees Randoms

When they say randoms… they truly mean it!

I saw animal shaped gummies and other random stuff like a top hat, palm tree, sunglasses, padlock, clock, some stuff I could not identify…

The fruity taste is nice and strong. Sweet, of course. I mean, it’s candy after all. But, I suppose, a better way to say it that the taste feels more natural than most of other brands I had my hooves on. They do promise on the package that there are no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives in the gummies.

VERDICT: Honestly? It’s better than the Haribo Supermix I’ve tried. I recommend this to gummy enthusiasts.

Rowntrees Pick & Mix

This one was even more mooseventurous!

I opened the pack and was like… I don’t know what I’m looking at!

Pretty random in here too, but no animals or other unidentified objects. Just some round and square, and fruit (at least I think those are fruits?) shapes in different sizes. Some covered with sugar or whatever that stuff is.

The taste is also good and feels naturally fruity. Turns out, not all of them are gummies. Some are more like… I don’t know… Skittles? Or the fruity Mentos, just softer. That kind of consistency.

Overall, I’ve identified three distinct kinds of candy in the pack: bigger, fatter and rounder gummies with some extra covering, smaller fruit shaped gummies, and square and the smallest candy that’s harder but still chewy.

Okay… according to the package, it’s tooty frooties, fruit pastilles, and fruit gums.

VERDICT: I like the small squares candy the most, but I found that if you do as they say, “Pick & Mix”, it tastes best. It’s a nice snack.

I’ve also wondered… what the fur is or are Rowntrees? Yeah, it’s a brand. I knew that much. But since Google didn’t show me any trees or anything else, I guess that’s all that it is. 🤔

Moose Tries New Slurps: HoneyB Sparkling Honey Drink

Once I opened the can… I sniffed it.

It smelled like honey. SHOCKER!

Anymoose…

It also tasted like honey. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?

Ok… It’s like drinking honey, except it’s not as thick.

The best part? Doesn’t seem like there is any extra sugar added, according to the ingredients list.

VERDICT: I don’t hate it. It’s a little too sweet for my taste, despite not having any extra sugar in it.

Moose Tries New Nomz: ETA Thick Cut Kiwi BBQ Chips

When they said thick cut, they weren’t kidding. These chips are thick.

But what is Kiwi BBQ supposed to be?

Is it any different from other BBQ chips out there?

No.

The taste isn’t anything special. Just BBQ.

That being said… does it taste bad?

No.

But is it something to die for?

No.

That’s a lot of nos.

VERDICT: That’s a no from me. Mediocre taste. Won’t buy again.

Ritter Sport Strawberry Yogurt

It was just like I remember… that type of chocolate. One of my favorites.

Creamy strawberry yogurt flavor with sweet yet sour pieces of strawberries. All covered with delicious milk chocolate.

Ritter Sport Milk Chocolate With Whole Hazelnuts

This type of chocolate has always been my moose favorite!

Tasty milk chocolate and hazelnuts… crunching between my teeth as I bite into it…

PERFECT!

VERDICT: Absolutely delicious chocolate! I recommend both!

Moose Tries New Slurps: Arizona Green Tea With Ginseng And Apple Juice

I’ll cut direct to the chase! The Arizona brand has been one of my favorite drinks to buy, but some flavors are (much) better than others.

The Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng & Apple Juice (Red Apple) is absolutely delicious! *slurrrrrrp*

Sweet, juicy taste of the red apple really adds to the tastiness of this drink. Yet this drink is not too sweet like many other drinks of this kind which I often find sickeningly sweet.

How sweet is that? (Count all the times I said ‘sweet’ just now, for no reason at all.)

VERDICT: Tasty slurps I recommend! 😜

Note: I bought this at Village Grocer, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Moose Tries New Nomz: Boss Salted Egg Chips

Would you look at that! Salted egg chips! I would say this flavor is a Malaysian favorite.

I’ve seen these chips around for a while now, but honestly? The price spooked me away from buying them. They’re around a whopping 25 ringgit!

How many plates of nasi goreng or ayam kynuit can you get for that? MHM!

I’ve finally bought them just for the sake of trying them out. And I certainly had some moosepectations!

Looking nice and fancy on the pack, but once you open it…

That’s not the same fancy and thick shape like on the package!

And the taste? It’s good! Fortunately!

VERDICT: Tasty nomz you can enjoy. Your wallet? Not so much. Unless you’re a high roller and care not for the puny price of these chips.

Moose Tries New Nomz: Dr. Oetker Ristorante Pizza – Quattro Formaggi (Four Cheese)

Ristorante is my favorite frozen pizza! But I’ve never tried this one, assuming that I wouldn’t like it.

And… SPOILER ALERT!

I was wrong.

A thin and crispy pizza with four varieties of cheese.

I like thin and crispy pizzas.

How crispy it will be, depends on how long you bake it. If you mess it up, it might end up too crispy. Not in a good way. More like rock hard.

And what kind of cheese exactly?

*reads the back of the box*

Mozzarella cheese, edam cheese, emmental cheese, and blue-veined cheese.

I have not heard of like half of these names. Ever.

Once out of the box and the plastic covering it, the pizza was ready to go into the oven.

But, my moose favorite pizza being with some ham or something, I decided to improve this pizza.

With chicken lyoner.

Was it worth it?

Absolutely!

It was unmosepectedly good. Real good!

Delicious!

The chicken lyoner went well with the pizza. I liked the taste of every cheese too. It’s hard to describe what it tasted like…

Cheesy? In a good way.

VERDICT: Amazing pizza! You should definitely try it! Especially if you are a cheese lover.

Moose Tries New Nomz: Haribo Supermix

Haribo Supermix Gummy Candy

On my way home, I’ve stopped by the supermarket to buy something. Don’t remember what it was, but I also found mooseself in the sweets section.

I’ve noticed some new Haribo gummies that I haven’t tried before, so I decided to go for it!

As the title says, it’s a Supermix—a mix of different gummies. Different colors, shapes, flavors and consistency.

I saw the shapes of bottles, sheep, some weird humanoid thingy and ice cream. I thought the sheep were grapes at first. I guess it’s the fluff.

The bottles were all white, soft and had a creamy taste. The humanoid thingies were more hard and in a few different flavors. Both sheep and ice cream shaped gummies were a mix of white, soft creamy taste at the back and different flavored soft gummy consistency at the front.

On the back of pack, they call the bottles smooth, ice cream and sheep are creamy, and the humanoid thingies are squishy. *shrugs*

I suppose I agree with those descriptions as well.

VERDICT: It’s nice, but there are much tastier options out there.
