Dominique Ansel Bakery Peach Creme Fraiche Mousse Cake: This teardrop-shaped dessert consists of a lemon cake with peach compote, all covered in a thin shard of pink-striped chocolate. It had a sharp, acidic flavor, and technically, the cake was soft and moist. But I couldn't help but wonder what exactly this dessert was trying to accomplish. While I hadn't had anything like it before, I wouldn't say it was particularly satisfying; it exists in its own world that's not quite delicious, yet not really challenging enough to stay in my memory. 3.0/5.0

Calpico White peach drink: As a kid, I used to drink Calpico when visiting family in Taiwan. A Japanese “soft drink,” Calpico has a milky-white color but is much thinner in consistency. I remember it being very sweet but probably haven’t had it in over a decade until I came across this white peach flavor. My memory ended up being pretty accurate, though, as the drink was far too sweet and tasted like liquid peach gummies. It’s hard to imagine a situation when it would be desirable to drink this. 2.0/5.0

Sound Sparkling peach and ginger white tea: I bought this bottle of white tea from Perelandra Natural Food Center in Brooklyn. As a fan of both peach and ginger, as well as sparkling versions of normally-not-sparkling beverages, I was excited to try it. Unfortunately, the flavor is weak and diluted, and the carbonation doesn’t hold up for long after the bottle is opened (on the order of 5 minutes). Would not purchase again. 2.0/5.0

Noosa Peach whole milk yogurt: Rounding out this week of Noosa reviews is their peach flavored yogurt. Peach is such a standard yogurt flavor that it verges on mundane, but a good one, even if it doesn’t surprise you, can be satisfying, as this Noosa flavor is. The sweetness of the fruit compote is slightly tempered by the richness of the yogurt. Overall, a solid take that’s a welcome option when you want to eat something familiar. 3.5/5.0

Steaz Peach green tea: At this year’s annual Mystery Hunt puzzle competition, my team was stationed close to the 26-100 lecture hall and its cluster of 6 vending machines. This tall can of Steaz came from the machine of non-Coca-Cola-owned beverages selling alternative caffeinated energy drinks. I was looking for a drink to get me through several more hours without the side effect of crashing, and for this, the can did its job-I felt alert and invigorated but not jittery. Flavor-wise, it didn’t stand out to me as ... (read more) 3.0/5.0

Icelandic Provisions Peach cloudberry skyr: Used in jams, which in turn is a topping for desserts like ice cream and waffles, cloudberry is a type of berry popular in Nordic countries. This cloudberry peach yogurt was the first time I tried it, though the yogurt tasted mostly of peach with a slight tanginess (presumably from the cloudberries). Icelandic Provisions skyr is thick (but not as thick as Siggi’s) and less sweet than normal yogurt (though more sweet than Siggi’s). The tub-shaped container makes it seem more substantial than ...
