Ok I can’t believe I actually did this. I don’t know how it happened but I guess it’s kinda cool that it was spontaneous. Yes I had grasshopper ice cream and the flavour was called Choc Hopper. REAL GRASSHOPPER! Not just the flavour that is typically made of chocolate and mint. Never thought I’d say those words… To be honest, I couldn’t actually make myself eat the whole grasshopper but I did have some bits and pieces (e.g. arms and legs mostly)… I only got a tiny scoop of chocolate ice cream so there were only 2 small grasshoppers in there. They don’t have any taste and they’re just crunchy and very light. I couldn’t stop imagining the grasshopper as I was eating it though. Actually I’m not even sure how many real grasshoppers I’ve even seen. I did see a cricket recently in my apartment and I was freaked out already.
So how did this all happen? The Economist was doing a promotion for their new subscription packages and I think they had an issue covering insects or something? They were doing the promotion at Wynyard station and being a sucker for free things, I had to go over and check it out. After I found out that there were REAL insects in the ice cream (this explains why there was no line up for free ice cream haha) I decided that since I was already there and it was free, I might as well give it a try. Or maybe it’s because I’m in Australia now and trying to be more adventurous. I think it was just a one time thing and I don’t think I’ll be compelled to try it again. Unless maybe they were completely covered in chocolate…heard those were good?
Let me know if you’d ever eat insects with your ice cream! Grasshopper ice cream is going to top the list for the most adventurous thing I’ve ever eaten!
Just found this super easy video on how to make tomato rice in your rice cooker! Seems like you can throw in any veggies and cooked meat and make a rice dish!
Still gotta try that rice cooker pancake recipe too. Let me know if you’ve made anything else in your rice cooker!

The automated Japanese restaurant without waiters – YouTube.
This could be an interesting experience. If you don’t care about customer service this could be the place for you and then maybe you won’t have tip either! I like the idea of the game on the tablet too. The food is probably average though?
I can see how the novelty would make it a hit. Time to make all the other social media flavours (before they get sued)?
Facebook-Flavored Ice Cream Is a Real Thing.
This is a reality show I actually wanna watch and I’ve sworn off reality shows for a while now. From the video, it seems like their cooking is way better than mine already! *Cue oooohs and awwwws* Yup okay gotta get back in the kitchen now… T___T
