[Snack Attack - Korea] Mister Potato - Tomato Flavor


Lotte Super carries a brand of fake Pringles for only 990 KRW! Who can say no?


I had a craving for Pringles one day after work, so I headed out to Lotte Super. I was in the chips aisle and I noticed they sold Mister Potato brand chips...for 990 KRW, a fraction of the normal Pringles price.

So, I didn't read...the Korean or the English....and also didn't look at the picture of the tomatoes...I just grabbed the red can, thinking it was going to just be plain.

I was wrong...and that's the story of how I got this weird flavor.

Since I was desperate for chips and I was too lazy to return it and also don't like wasting food, I decided to just...eat it.

The flavor was SO strange...but not like the sweet mayonnaise flavored Pringles flavor (a Korea-only flavor, I believe). It was not good, but it was also not terrible. I definitely wouldn't buy it again, but I could see why other people may like it.

It was kind of sweet, but definitely also tasted like tomato soup, a sweet tomato soup. Since I'm from Minnesota...and we're relatively close to Canada, for some reason my school served us ketchup potato chips a couple of times...an experimental flavor on Old Dutch's part perhaps. It definitely reminded me like that. So, maybe for the Canadian expats in Korea, this may be a taste of home for you?

The texture was just like Pringles and had it been a salt-flavored chip, rather than tomato flavored I would definitely say it was as good as, if not better than, real Pringles. The flavor was very evenly distributed. Maybe I noticed that because it was such a unique flavor?

Have you tried this or any of the other flavors of Mister Potato chips?

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
