Lulabelle Eats Asia: Roasted Seaweed Snack (South Korea)…….

In honor of the Olympics in South Korea, I’m bringing back my “Lulabelle Eats Asia” series (while also cleaning out my archived unpublished entry box). And today we eat everyone’s favorite aphrodisiac………….

SEAWEED!! (No, seriously. It is one. I googled it. 😛 )

Now, I generally don’t mind fish and other seafood, but even for me, seaweed was a bit out there. But my sister’s kids eat it as a snack and a few years ago when we were visiting them, I tried some. From what I can remember this tasted exactly the same.

Smell: Like the ocean. Fishy deliciousness. Which is weird because it’s not fish, but a plant. But it’s in salt water, so I guess that makes sense.

Taste: As these are supposed to be lightly salted, I gotta say I’m a little disappointed because they taste a little bland. They also have a tiny fishy flavor to them, but they smell fishier than they taste. (Although it should be noted that if you have a cat, they *may* be curious about the smell, but not enough to eat it for themselves).

Appearance: Each piece of seaweed is a rectangular thin sheet of delicate seaweedness. It’s actually very pretty to look at in the light. Like a delicate piece of glass.

.4oz package contains two servings. Each serving contains 30 calories, 50mg of sodium and 2g of fat.

So, as there is still a little bit of valentines day left (at least for the midwest and west coast stateside), go out and buy a package of seaweed, cut it into little heart shapes, snuggle up to your sweetie and let the seaweed do the rest. 😉 

Bon Appetite’ Y’all

Last Minute Budget Friendly Valentines Day Gift: Lulabelle Reviews Chocolate Strawberry Oreos…..

I’m uploading this as close to noon as I can so that perhaps you can pick these up on your lunch break. 😉

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!! The following review is for those who are in need of a Valentines day gift that won’t break the bank. And if you haven’t gotten a gift yet, have no fear, I haven’t gotten Chad’s gift yet (but in my defense his schedule is such that we aren’t celebrating till tomorrow anyway 😉 ). 

This review was done eating only 5 cookies…..That’s got to be a record somewhere. Let me know where I can pick up my hard won trophy. 😛

Appearance: Chocolate cookie with chocolate filling and a tiny bit of strawberry filling.

Smell: Like Neapolitan ice cream, the chocolate and strawberry parts.

Taste: Like a thinner version of chocolate and strawberry Neapolitan ice cream. It’s like the ice cream flavor but in cookie form.

Delicious. Very interesting that the flavor of strawberry can be tasted in every bite but the strawberry cream is only in the center of the bottom cookie. I’d almost rather have these then actual chocolate covered strawberries, but my primary physician would probably be happier if I was eating real strawberries. 😛

Hope you all have a fantastic day! And if you don’t have a special someone, get these anyway and treat yourself. Besides, calories don’t count on Valentines Day, right 😉

You’re right, this isn’t a picture of an Oreo package. It’s me. In a shower cap. Eating a giant Reeses. #Clickbait #You’reWelcome
