Wei-Chuan lotus seed paste buns: I love mantou, a Chinese steamed bun often consumed for breakfast. I recently purchased this Taiwanese lotus seed filled bun from Hmart and am a huge fan. The filling is very lightly sweetened (2g of sugar), and after about 10 minutes of steaming, the bread is pillowy yet slightly chewy. It's very difficult to find a brand of filled frozen buns that isn't insanely sweet, and these were also reasonably priced. 4.5/5.0

Maruesun dried squid: I grew up eating shredded dried squid, but this is one of the first kind of I've had that is flat. To be honest, the main reason I purchased this product is because it was the least expensive at $3 a bag (about half the price of the alternatives at Hmart). Inside is bite-sized strips of squid, almost like eating beef jerky, and each strip is coated in what seems to be sugar. Overall, the coating makes the snack overly sweet, though the chewy texture and seafood flavor come through. Not bad b... (read more) 3.0/5.0

Tao Kae Noi kimchi flavored Super Crisp: This is the last of the Tao Kae Noi line of grilled seaweed snacks I had yet to try from my local Hmart. The umami-rich flavor has a great balance of savory and sweet. The spicy kimchi taste builds and lingers. A uniquely crispy and substantial seaweed snack. 3.5/5.0

I Mei Pudding Choco Roll: Individually wrapped chocolate covered wafer crisp filled with a soft pudding-flavored interior. Similar in some ways to a Twix without caramel and with a much flakier cookie element. Sweetness is spot on, with just 6g of sugar per piece. Pudding is pronounced but not overwhelming, filling melts in your mouth. An excellent sweet treat at a very reasonable price. Purchased from H Mart. 4.0/5.0

I Mei sesame cream wafers: I was excited to find a black sesame flavored snack, but these wafers are unfortunately lacking. The wafer texture and flavor is not unlike a typical ice cream cone (styrofoam-like), and there is only a small amount of cream. The snack would benefit from more cream and sesame flavor and a little more sweetness (there is 4g sugar in one serving). 2.0/5.0

Kung Fu Tea honey lemonade with boba: This "less sweet" drink (at 30% sweetness) was unbalanced, with an unpleasant amount of acidity that built up over time. The real crime was the boba, though, which was so soft it was almost like chewing gum. No bite whatsoever. Quality control is not good in Chinatown. 1.0/5.0
