Thank You Lotte Xylitol Wish Upon A Smile Promo

Late November of 2013 I came across a blog post wherein she reviewed some gum with Xylitol from Lotte. I saw this brand in the candy section of SM supermarket but never had the chance to buy it. In the blog post she mentioned there about the promo Lotte will be holding over at their Facebook page. It is a photo contest of Mommy and kid in it showing their best smile and Mommy or Dad can wish for a gift for his or her kid this Christmas. Wishing of gifts depends upon the weekly theme posted. 

Since day1 I started posting our photo with the best smile and gift wish i had for my daughter. Luckily, I won the first week consolation prize and this was sent to me as my prize. 
Tubes and packs of assorted flavors of Lotte Xylitol gums plus P500 ($12) gift certificate. 

It wasn't just me who was happy about the prize but my kids too! I was able to use the GC to buy some items in the grocery last Christmas season. Lotte Xylitol really made us SMILE! :D
Thank you!

Regent Mochi - Japanese Style Glutinous Rice Cakes

I have been so curious about this product since the first time I saw it on one of my FB friend's timeline. I was able to buy a couple of bags from the grocery shopping at SM Supermarket. 

A bag of Regent Mochi assorted and one bag of Ube flavored Mochi.

This one is from the assorted bag which contains 10 pieces of this single mochi in different flavors. This one is buko pandan flavor. 
The inside of the mochi has this sweet bean paste just enough to taste it. Each bag of assorted mochi sells for P57.50 and the Ube mochi which comes in 6pieces per bag cost at P67.00.
My kids loves the flavor of the white and pineapple mochi, i'd go for the ube mochi.

Mochi resembles the taste and texture of the Chinese butchi which you can order in every Chinese deli. For the price, it is a little expensive compared to the freshly cooked butchi but readily available if you crave for the same taste. 

Will I buy next time? Yep, for the taste and how  convenient the packaging plus the kids liked it. 
Have you tried this product? Your verdict?
