Drumstick-flavored ice cream! --

Saw this at Makro and couldn't believe it!

I told Johann and my sister and they didn't believe me. Tried looking for it in other supermarkets and couldn't find it.


It really tastes like the Drumstick! It even has the waffle cone bits.

Can you believe this is local? --

My husband and I love chips! We love to try out new brands and flavors. I saw this at Robinson's and bought a bag for Johann. It's really good! The texture reminds me of Kettle-cooked chips (which I love).



We were so surprised to discover that it's made in ... Malabon!

It comes in two flavors: Sour Cream and Onions and Barbecue.

Too bad the Philippines isn't part of the list --

Amazon is having a Comic Strip contest and the prize is a publishing contract from Andrews McMeel --

When I read the official rules, the Philippines isn't part of the list of countries eligible to enter.

Anyhoo, info here.

Is anyone else collecting these? --

I really like the new Happy Meal toys from Mcdonald's --


I'm trying to get the little apple for the following years: 1978, 1979, 1980, 2006 and 2009 for the birth year of my siblings and my two kids.

I strayed a bit and ended up getting these because they were so cute!

Seth likes the action pop-up one and the 1980 Hello Kitty with the moving tennis equipment. ^_^


<-- 1980 for my youngest bro! The 1978 is from the same set.

<-- you press the ribbon and the cake "lights up" -- Seth sings the "Happy Birthday" song and blows out the candles. Hahahaha!

<-- couldn't resist getting this one. The toast pops up! It comes with a Hello Kitty figure but we kept it away from the kiddies because it might get lost!

<-- My little girl! She's teething kaya she's nibbling on anything she can get her hands on.

Random Thought #5: Pizza blindfold test? --

A few days ago we tried out the new Greenwich flavor: Philly Cheesesteak Overload, which is part of the new line from Greenwich (Pizza for Men).

The cream cheese on pizza, mixed with mozzarella was a revelation. Next time, I will keep a tub or bar of cream cheese handy and I'll put it on my pizza as another topping.


The meat part was a bit too heavy for me --


Anyhoo, it got me and my sister talking -- would we be able to differentiate the different pizza brands blindfolded?

If so, how? By crust? By distinctive flavor?

What would be a good flavor to try this with? Pepperoni? Or do we go with each brands "signature" pizza?
