What I Bought This Week #19

The theme this week was HOT & SPICY. We bought lots of hot sauce and still have a bunch on our list to try or buy. Admittedly, we've probably accumulated a bit too much, but I'm sure we'll use it up.

Now that we're done with our no processed junk food challenge, we've been slowly relaxing the rules. While we're still not buying chips or bagged popcorn, we did purchase some instant noodles, as per hubby's request. He had mentioned our fire noodle challenge (regular and 2x spicy) to one of his coworkers and she was curious to try the 2x spicy noodles, so we picked some up to share with her. We'd also heard good things about the curry version so we figured we would try that too. We ended up giving a few packs to hubby's family, so we're only keeping 5 of the 10 packs we purchased. :)

We also purchased some Yakult, which is a yogurty-type drink I used to love when I was young. We were talking with my family about this drink during dinner yesterday, but hubby's never tried it so I grabbed some on impulse as we were waiting to check out. Definitely more of an occasional treat as it's rather sweet, but I love the funky sour milky flavour.

Lastly, hubby and I tried a whole bunch of Filipino baked goods from Valerio's Tropical Bakeshop -- and EVERYTHING was DELICIOUS. I wish we bought more. We can't wait to go back and try a few more things.
