DeLonghi PrimaDonna Elite

De'Longhi PrimaDonna Elite

I had the opportunity last month to attend the launch of DeLonghi’s newest coffee machine, the DeLonghi PrimaDonna Elite.  While I continue to drool and wish that I own DeLonghi’s newest product myself, I know that I don’t need it.  Guess why?  Because I already have my very own DeLonghi Fully Automatic Coffee Machine!

Good job McDonald’s!

After having a long day at work, at past midnight, I had the urge to drive-thru a McDonald’s store.  Guess why?  I had to buy McDonald’s new product gimmick — a Fry Holder for our car! Read More

Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok

Lucky Me! Special Pancit Palabok

I see palabok as a dish that needs to be prepared for a long amount of time.  It’s a delightful dish that people usually serve at parties.  I tend to get a dose of palabok during office celebrations or birthday parties.  But that’s about it for me.

Who would have thought that Pancit Palabok can be prepared in less than 5 minutes?  I mean, is that even possible?

Apparently, Lucky Me! Special, a company known to have perfected instant noodles have a product named Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok!

This week, I was in for a big surprise as Lucky Me! Special sent me a couple of Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok for review.  Wow!  They didn’t just send it as it is but Lucky Me! Special delivered it in true palabok style.  The products were placed in a traditional bilao!

With that kind of product presentation, who wouldn’t be excited?  I was totally psyched to try it out!

A colleague told me that Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok launched a long time ago (last November 2011). I guess I was too concentrated on their pancit canton product that I missed Lucky Me’s display of Pancit Palabok Instant Noodle Packs.

Today, I had it for lunch.  I woke up so late already that I didn’t have time to prepare any dish so I went to get a pack of Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok.

Cooking Lucky Me! Special Pancit Palabok is surprisingly easy!  I can describe the preparation in three simple steps.  In just 5 minutes, I was already enjoying the wonderful taste of Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok!

  1. Place noodles in a bowl.  Add boiling water and cover for 4 minutes.

Pancit Palabok is usually served unmixed.  Look at Lucky Me! Special’s version below:

It looked like the real thing!  I loved it!!  I have this crazy idea of just serving Lucky Me! Special Pancit Palabok and people might mistake it as the authentic one: Rice noodles with thick golden shrimp sauce topped with chives and real chicharon 🙂

In true palabok style, I mixed the ingredients with the noodles.  When I tried it out, I was pleasantly surprised!  The instant pancit palabok by Lucky Me! Special actually tasted unexpectedly good!

Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok has a similar aroma and taste of the authentic palabok dish.  I’m quite satisfied with the product.

How about you?  Have you tried it?

KFC New Filipino Summer Krushers

KFC New Filipino Summer Krushers

Last december, KFC served us with dessert-flavored Christmas Krushers!  I loved them and I’m sure the next batch of KFC Krushers would be as good.

Summer is here!  You know what?KFC is innovating new KFC Krushers flavors again!  It’s really scorching hot with temperature of 35 degress celsius here in Manila.  When Filipinos crave for something cold during this heat season, two desserts come to mind — Halo Halo and Buko Pandan.  Guess what?  Those two are the summer flavors of KFC Krushers!  Isn’t that cool?

What I like about the new KFC Summer Krushers is that we don’t need to mix the ingredients.  We just put the straw on the cup and start sipping!  Of course, in true KFC Krushers style, there’s always real bits in the dessert drink.

Let’s get to know the two flavors:

Buko Pandan Krushers

KFC Krushers Buko Pandan

Refreshing buko drink with bits of real macapuno and green nata.

Among the two flavours, I like the buko pandan better.  Even between the real buko pandan and halo halo desserts, it’s the same preference.  The KFC version is rich, like really rich!  If you want strong flavours of the buko pandan, then you will like Buko Pandan Krushers.  I feel it’s on the sweet side though.

Halo-Halo Krushers

KFC Krushers Halo Halo

Creamy ube drink with bits of real macapuno, sweet leche flan and nata.

Like I said earlier, I really like that I don’t need to exert effort in mixing the ingredients in the halo halo.  I can just dive right in and enjoy the dessert.  It’s also too sweet like buko pandan krushers but what the heck, everyone has a sweet tooth 🙂

Apart from the launch of the Summer Krushers, KFC came up with a promo wherein eight friends can spend two days and three nights on a private resort in Narra, Palawan.

KFC Krushers Island

It will be a fun adventure with friends.  To win, one must create a meme on the Krushers Island website and convince everyone just how awesome and cool he/she really is!  The most popular meme wins the Krushers Island contest!

Swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, playing with turtles and karaoke are some of the things the winners can experience in the paradise.  There are already a couple of people who joined Krushers Island but I believe it’s still early in the contest so try your luck!

Beat the heat with summer krushers and take your chances on the Krushers Island!  What a way to celebrate summer with KFC!
