Have you ever purchased your grocery online? Have you ever ordered authentic Asian food online? I hadn't until Asian Food Grocer invited me to try their service for free. Just as its name suggests, AsianFoodGrocer.com is an online grocery store specializing in Asian food products imported mostly from Japan. I'm deeply impressed with the large selection of food products available on the site. You can buy virtually anything you'll need to cook an Asian recipe: seasonings, rice, noodles, miso paste and soup, beverages, and even chopsticks and bowls! They carry a lot of fancy products I can’t find at the small Asian Food Market in my neighborhood.
My favorite section on Asian Food Grocer is Snacks. The picture shows the items I picked for review: Chocolate Almond Crush Pocky, Glico Tiramisu Dessert Pocky, Hello Kitty Lottepie, Morinaga Keroppi Kawaii Cookies, and Chocolate Filled Koala Biscuits. They are ALL super delicious and visually appealing!
My son first picked the Morinaga Keroppi Kawaii Cookies from the box of goodies because he loved the cute frog on the packing (Kawaii actually means cute in Japanese). He became crazy about the tiny milk and honey cookies right after the first bite. He kept asking for more and I had to hide them in the cupboard to stop him from gobbling down the entire bag during one snack session. I tried a few pieces. Oh my, they are irresistibly tasty! The crunchy, richly flavored cookies melted instantly in my mouth. I wanted to have more too!
Hello Kitty Lottepies are "two soft cookies filled with fluffy marshmallow cream and covered in a smooth chocolate flavored coating". Sound yummy, right? I chose them primarily because I'm a big Hello Kitty fan. There are quite a few Hello Kitty themed snacks here. I served it as breakfast for my son. I planned to let him have one, but each time he ended up having two. Watching him happily munching on the bonus piece was a treat by itself.
Chocolate Filled Koala Biscuits are fun to eat too. Each biscuit is koala shaped with playful paintings on top. My son loved to play with them before putting them in his mouth. The biscuits have a unique, delicate taste that I've never found on other food.
Chocolate Almond Crush Pocky and Glico Tiramisu Dessert Pocky are my husband's favorite. I told you before that he's a big chocolate addict as well as a nuts lover. So these chocolate and almond coated crunchy biscuit sticks are right up his alley!
One thing I love about all the snacks I reviewd is that they are flavorful but not sinfully sweet so I can treat them to everyone.
AsianFoodGrocer.com is very easy to navigate and to shop. Each product description is accompanied by detailed nutritional information. Discounts are offered for buying more than one of the same product. Since they provide flat rate shipping, it is highly advisable to buy in bulk and save.
Asian Food Grocer has just added to their inventory mouth-watering mooncakes imported from Hong Kong. I look forward to trying them. If you're interested in ordering from AFG, I'd suggest you follow them on Twitter for the latest promotions and discounts.
Thanks again to Asian Food Grocer for this yummy review opportunity!
