Snacks: Deep Fried Cheesecake.

I had my heart set on Todai for dinner after class one night but knowing we didnt have any money for it, I went to my favorite Chinese place, Manchu Wok!

They started serving Deep Fried Cheesecake so I decided to give them a try.

I was expecting it to be bigger... other than that, the crust isn't flaky but chewy. Not tempura chewy, almost like rice wrapper chewy. Which is good, I'm not a fan of tempura! The filling was creamy and definitely tasted like Cheesecake but nothing over powering. The powdered sugar on top gave it a nice sweet touch.

I see going back for more of these in my future!

Snacks: Wal Mart Cookies N' Cream Brownie.

Last year I discovered this brownie sitting on the table and snagged a slice. After inhaling that, I snagged another... and another... and another...

I have been on the search for it ever since. But I haven't been able to find it! I know it came from Wal Mart and it was a Cookies N' Cream brownie. My husband thinks I'm crazy but I finally (just now) showed him this picture and his typical response? "Mmm." See, I wasn't crazy! It actually really existed!

I can't give you a real review right now because well... it's been about a year since I've had it. But it was delicious. I'm not a huge fan of brownies or Cookies N' Cream, but this was bearable. And addicting.

If any of you spot this at your local Wal Mart at any time, please please please let me know!
