I-Mei Pudding Ice Cream Bar

What is I-Mei?

Pudding Ice Cream Bar
Popsicle. Ice lolly. Ice cream bar. Whatever you want to call it, this tasty morsel is not your typical Jell-o pudding, but rather custard pudding flavored, which is a popular dessert in Asia, particularly in Japan.

I-Mei does not disappoint. It looks and tastes exactly like pudding. The yellow part is creamy and rich in vanilla flavor, while the brown part is icy, sweet caramel goodness. The difference in texture makes it quite addicting to gobble the ice cream bar in one go. When you eat or lick both sides of it, the flavors harmonize and it feels like you’re eating a cold custard pudding. Granted sometimes the caramel flavor overpowers the vanilla/pudding flavor.

Considering it’s summer, I definitely recommend buying a pack of I-Mei ice cream bar, this or some other flavor.

Rating: 5/5

Grammar Games

grammargames

Back when computers were slow, bulky, and taupe, I played this rainforest game with a toucan and red helicopter. I recently googled this game and discovered it is called Grammar Games; I was surprised my library owned a copy so I checked it out. So.much.nostalgia. Looking at the graphics and comparing them to PC games today, it seems so primitive. Nonetheless, it was fun playing the mini games I played when I was little, granted most of the time I unknowingly was hacking the keys.

Grammar Games, created by Davison & Associates Inc. in 1995, is divided into four mini games—Rainforest Rescue, Falling Fruit, Hidden Wonders, and Jungle Gizmo—each focusing on a particular aspect of English grammar. There are three levels to each game that the player can adjust by going to the menu bar. This game can still be played on Windows XP, and is a great game for children 10 and up (according to the box) and for ESL students.
