Foodie Friday #7 : Wing-Co Chocolate Milk
"The manly chocolate milk for men with added man" - the tag line for the new chocolate milk drink in the market.
I was given this drink along with the free weekly Shortlist magazine at my local tube station yesterday. A chilled choclate milk in a sunny morning! A welcome change!
First thing that struck me was the size of the bottle - 500g!! Half a kilo of chocolate milk??! It would last me for a few days in the office.
"40% high protein (Whey Protein)"
"Shoots down hunger, FAST"
It sounds like those manly muscle building energy drink to me. With a closer look to the product description at the back, and the wing man deisgn, this chocolate milk is screaming (or shouting) out manly to the market.
(Please excuse my messy office desk background)
The drink is tasty, very rich in chocolate flavour. Skimmed milk was used which is nice. The only worrying bit is the sugar content: 9.5g of sugar per 100g, so for this 500g bottle, you will take in 47.5g of sugar if you drink it all in a go. For me, it is astoundingly high, but I suppose this is main factor to give you that instant lift of energy before the protein kicks in.
I suppose this is a welcome alternative to those who prefer not to be seen with a can of red bull in a weekday morning in the office.
I have not seen it in any supermarket yet, so keep a look out if this sounds appealing to you!
When I was in Superdrug to buy the Tiffany colours (NYC nail polishes - check out my blog post here ), as the offer was 3 for 2 across all nail polishes, I picked up a MUA polish as my freebie. I saw this pastel baby pink colour in Natural Days. The colour looks really cute in the bottle.
Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even. Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
