Category: Snacks and Other Tasty Treats


My boyfriend is a diabetic. This means that every time I go shopping, especially if it’s for something sugary, I check the calorie count, carb count, sugar count, etc. If he can’t have it, chances are, I won’t purchase it. So when I found this shaved ice syrup, I was really happy to find a healthy alternative to all the sugar syrups that have ridiculous sugar counts. Not only is this shaved ice syrup reasonably priced from $2-$3, it’s also MUCH healthier for you than the regular shaved ice syrups you would find at Target, Stater Bros. etc. For instance, my favorite, Hawaiian Blue Shaved Ice Syrup 13.05 OZ, is only $3.19 and has only 20 calories and 6 grams of sugar per serving. That means that, plausibly, my boyfriend could have a decent amount of this stuff (he LOVES shaved ice, icees, etc.) and not get sick from it. A healthier, sweet option for your Shaved Ice and everyone you love! AND it’s just tastes better okay!

Check this online store out ASAP! I know it’s really hard to find reasonably priced organic food that doesn’t taste terrible or that lies about how “organic” it actually is. My own interests always lead me to asian food stores online because they tend to sell the healthiest items that are not to unreasonably priced. My favorite online asian food provider: Asian Food Grocer.com. This place is awesome. They offer anything from traditional Japanese and Chinese rice to more modern microwaveable (but healthy alternatives!) rice based food plates for those nights you don’t feel like cooking. I LOVE them. They also carry Ramune (my favorite soda of all time. ALL TIME!) in a variety of flavors, some that even include a Hello Kitty label. CUTE! 12 flavors to choose from at $1.78 each. They carry a few options of different kinds of nori for sushi (Nori is seaweed), miso soup, miso paste, and asian noodles. Yay for Ramen and Udon! They carry origami paper, chopsticks and asian style cutlery/plates etc. They also sell Hi-Chew in a variety of flavors and Pocky.

Other cool things about this site include a blog archive of Asian Food Etiquette, Trivia, Traveling and how to shed pounds by eating miso! Yum!
