Another rare Sometimes Foodie stop-motion. It seems like I am always pouring things…
Mr. Brown Macadamia Nut Iced coffee -Asian Food Market : Cherry Hill, NJ
Another item from my favorite grocery store, The Asian Food Market.
As you can see in the first photo, this container is much shorter than a traditional soda can. Since I rarely drink coffee, a little portion like this is perfect for me. The design is kinda cheesy, and it reminds me of the carpets that are commonly seen in roller rinks. There are palm trees, sunglasses, coffee beans and stars scattered all over the can with a tropical gradient color scheme. Although the design reminds me of American off-brand (no frills) beverages, I was surprised to find out that this is actually a product from Taiwan.
The coffee inside smells sweet and creamy with a hint of macadamia nut. Actually, this smells just like the bottled iced coffee drinks they sell at Starbucks.
Taking a sip, I was surprised that is tasted like the bottled Starbucks drinks too! The only difference is that this coffee is a little less sweet, but I like that. Due to the design looking like a quirky knock off brand, I expected the coffee to be watery and cheap. It is actually really creamy. As for the macadamia nut flavor, it is more of an aftertaste, but it is present.
Overall I am really impressed with the overall coffee flavor. This was cheaper than the bottled stuff you can buy from Starbucks, and it is only 1oz smaller. I don’t think I’m ever going to buy the bottled Starbucks drinks again.

Koala No March, Creamy Cafe Latte - Chinatown Goodies
The last treat I grabbed from Chinatown. These Koalas are similar to the Hello Pandas I reviewed here, but as of yet, I haven’t seen any Hello Panda specialty flavors. The Koala No March come in TONS of flavors.
When I opened the bag inside they smelled just like a delicious creamy latte.
They have a milky coffee flavor, and a nice cookie crunch. When it comes to basic chocolate, strawberry and vanilla flavors I prefer Hello Panda, but these Creamy Cafe Latte Koalas are pretty nice. I want to try their other specialty flavors. There is even a cute Halloween one!
Also, I love that the Baby Koala needed her morning latte on the back panel.
