Eishindo Jelly Cups Review

I was kind of hungry today so I decided to go to the Korean grocery store near school to pick up some snacks!! (I’m a big girl… so yeah!)

I bought a few different drinks (posts will come soon enough) and the Eishindo jelly/jello cups!!

I’ve heard of the jelly snacks in a few Korean shows but the one show that usually come to mind is “The return of Superman”. Sarang loves these little snacks (although I am sure the brand is different) so I decided to try them out.

Also… who doesn’t love to watch Sarang eat?!?!

There are four flavors in total…

eishindo-jelly-candy

…strawberry, pineapple, orange, and apple.

The consistency of these jello cups is similar to the jello cups you get in the dairy section of the grocery store but just slightly wet.

Strawberry: I wasn’t sweet and it really didn’t have much of a strawberry flavor to it. I know it is artifical flavoring but… yeah. This one kinda sucked. 0 out of 4 stars!!!

Pineapple: 1 out 4… doesn’t taste like pineapple!!

Orange: 0 out of 4… NO orange flavor found here!!

Apple: 1 out of 4… WHERE IS THE APPLE?!?!?!?!

OK… I HAVE TO BE HONEST!! These things suck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There really is no distinctive taste between the four. You really aren’t eating a flavor but a color.

Ingredients: (On the actual package) Water, agar-agar (Japanese and vegan friendly version of gelatin),  sugar, fructose, glucose, citric acid, fd&c red #40, fd&c yellow #5, fd&c yellow #6, fd&c blue #1, fd&c yellow#5

The distributor includes flavoring on their label which includes the “flavors” already listed!

YOU CAN’T EVEN TASTE THE SUGAR!!! I really hope I just found the crappy version of these jelly snacks!! I am so disappointed!!

T.T

NEVER MESS WITH A FAT GIRLS TASTE BUDS!!

Happy 27th Birthday Choi Seung Hyun (aka: T.O.P (aka:Bingu Top))!! 생일 축하합니다!

Not only is today So Ji Sub oppa’s birthday, it is also T.O.P’s 27th birthday! (10 years apart!!)

awesome

My dream is to have So Ji Sub and T.O.P. in the same drama together (although it would be a million times better if you also threw into the mix Jang Hyuk, Jung Woo Sung, Cha Seung Won, and Song Seung Hun).

So our adorable Bingu TOP is turning 27 years old! It will be  a sad day when his military enlistment day comes around but until then let us enjoy our adorable Choi Seung Hyun. (I am a year older so I won’t be calling him oppa… that is just creepy!)

We all know that our adorable Tabi has different personalities! Let us explore these his different personalities but first…

Baby T.O.P.!!!

BigBang was one of the first K-Pop groups I found when I first “discovered” K-Pop. They will always probably be one of my favorite groups! T.O.P. is a the poster child of what happens when you are passionate, dedicated, and you work hard for what you want. To have gone from a young hooligan to one of Korea’s biggest names in fashion, music, and a rising star in the world of acting is something I have tremendous respect for! I can not wait to see where his career leads him and how he will grow as an actor and as an artist!

Happy Birthday So Ji Sub!! 생일 축하합니다!

One of Korea’s sexiest and  most charismatic oppa’s is celebrating his 37th birthday today!! Happy Birthday So Ji Sub!! I, like many other women, have fallen under the So Ji Sub spell! He is sexy, talented, charismatic, and all around extraordinary! He has mastered his skills in modeling, acting, and as a rapper! So Ji Sub is PERFECTION! So, to celebrate oppa’s 37th birthday and the 19 years since his debut into the world of the Korean entertainment and fashion industry, I will now bombard you with pictures of our lovely oppa!

Let us start with:

BABY SO JI SUB!!

He still has the same adorable eyes!! He is just too cute!

Ever wondered what oppa looked like in high school?

So Ji Sub Senior High School

Are you suprised! Oppa is totally handsome but he looks like he would have been a very serious student! (Although something tells me he could have also been a bit of a trouble maker! Oppa is totally 대박!)

How about 90’s oppa?

90's sjs

Ok… this picture is totally 90’s! If you grew up as a 90’s kid then you totally know exactly what I am talking about! The eyes and lips are just too much!! The hair… if you look up any 90’s teen idols (even in the United States), many of the guys had a similar hair style! So Ji Sub makes it look awesome though!!

And now… sexy picture of our awesome oppa!!
