Product Review . . . chocolate chai tea and chinese food


I spotted this little beauty of the grocery store shelf the other day and just had to try it.  Two of my favourite food groups:  Chocolate and Chai Tea.  I brewed myself a cup when I got home and I have to say its not bad.  Not as chocolatey as I thought it might be and it wasn't as spicy as chai tea usually is . . . but not bad.

My favourite drink in the whole world.  
  • 1 cup (275ml), 35, 0g, 3g, 5g

And of course, to make my new favourite drink, a Tassimo coffee maker.  This little beauty is so simple and quick to operate.  I use it 2-3 times a day.  I have this older model which I picked up through a buy, sell and swap group for a great price.


Poor old St. Thomas' Kings Buffet.  They have had a rough time in the press and on social media lately.  They were recently closed down for a couple of days by the Health Unit for some infractions.  Now all I hear is ew, I'm never going back there because they have bugs and serve cat.  Seriously!  LOL.  You can see they are trying hard to bring back business with sales and promotions.  This past week lunch was around $5 and supper was $10 (rounded).  Guess what?  This is probably now the cleanest restaurant in town.  They would have to be to reopen AND they are now subject to random inspections for the next while.  I wonder just how clean other St. Thomas restaurants are?
