Currently Snacking on: Magnum Red Velvet and Calbee Honey Butter Potato Chips

One thing you should know about me is that, I'm a "savoury girl", I'd go for savoury over sweets anytime of the day!  I have a huge stash of junkfood and Mr. AMW has his own stash of sweets (chocolates, etc...) which I almost never touch (well, I do once a month *winks*)  

So when Magnum came up with their newest Red Velvet flavored ice cream, I didn't think I'd go gaga over it!  Boy was I wrong!

Inspired by my favorite Red Velvet Cake, it does have that distinct taste of cream cheese and creaminess of a Red Velvet Cake on every bite!  

This is a limited edition ice cream from Magnum has an intense cream cheese frosting that any Red Velvet Cake lover will search for!  And of course, it doesn't hurt that it comes with the same crunchy Chocolate crust that every Magnum Ice Cream lovers want --- this one is in Belgian White Chocolate.

And like I said, I'm all for the "savourty" so when my favorite potato chips brand Calbee finally brought in the most sought after flavor --- Honey Butter Potato Chips.

I've been seeing this flavor on Social Media (particularly Instagram) and wonders how in the world we don't have them here!  Finally, my prayers has been answered!

Jack 'n Jill Calbee finally arrived our shores for the junkfood lovers like me!

I have to admit, I'm not a fan of buttery taste!  I like butter (don't get me wrong) but I don't quite understand the love for butter on my "potato chips".  So truth be told, on first bite, the sweet honey and the kick of butter taste gave me a weird "tastebud" sensation that I don't quite understand.

Do I love it?  Do I hate it?

I can't even explain why I find myself grabbing one chip to another and ended up finishing up the whole bag!  Truthfully, it is a type of flavor I can't believe I would love!  At first few bites, you can taste the difference between the honey and butter but as you move on to the 5th chip (and above), you can't seem to tell the difference anymore and you just want to keep on eating!

As my fellow Honey Butter Flavored Chips eater would say: "It grows on you"!
