Fukuoka Hakata Amaou - Yummy.
Aside from tasting good, it is even aesthetically pleasing until you feel kind of guilty for chewing up a piece of perfection. I really had that 不舍得 （unwilling) kind of feeling but I couldn't leave them for too long as the ones that I bought were already quite ripe.
Heart Shaped Yum <3
The best strawberries I have ever had up till now. They have managed to convert me into a strawberry lover when I previously had the misconception that all strawberries are either sour or tasteless hahaha..
I went crazy and spent S$30 on strawberries!
They were seriously calling out to me when I passed by the fruit stall. The only time I have gone crazy and bought expensive (to me) fruit is occasionally during cherry season. When the boss told me that these were a steal (I have heard that they are expensive and can cost up to S$29 a packet) I just grabbed the box, then I realised I didn't have any cash and since it was a roadside stall that couldn't accept Nets or credit cards, I had to cross 2 streets to withdraw cash and rush back for these babies. Siao liao. XD
Soooo pretty! (and so ripe -_____-)
In the end I shared 1 packet with my colleagues. I knew I wouldn't be able to finish all on my own as these huge babies are quite filling. Just eating 2 feels like you had a whole breakfast lol. Felt quite bad that after distributing, each colleague could only have 1 (max 2) of them. Sorry guys, would have bought more if they were cheaper, haha.
Whilst the above were the best fresh strawberries I have had (to-date), the one below is the best freeze-dried strawberry I have ever had:
Rokkatei Strawberry Chocolate... Ooooooooo... I am so in love! <3
Also made in Japan, this also gives you that terrible 不舍得 feeling, especially when you throw that sweet-looking flowery packaging into the bin.. Owww.. Sweet with a tangy taste, melty and crunchy and oh so pretty, please tell me how you can manage to not like this if you have tried and yet are not addicted yet! Too bad they are rare and hard to find like mountain mushrooms. The only way to get them is to 1) fly to Hokkaido or 2) beg your mum who is going to bring back as many packets as she can get her hands on, then pray they won't melt during her journey home. I am now down to the last 2 packets.. Please please someone else please go to Hokkaido soon!! hahahahha...
Anyways, just a short rambling about my recent strawberry craze. XD
