Hong Kong - Crumbs

The frozen yogurt war in Hong Kong continues and Crumbs in definitely on the list, as the long queues outside its hole in the wall in busy Causeway Bay will attest to.

The yogurt is not my favourite, with a texture and taste more akin to cream and can be a little heavy.  You would do well to share.  However, the tartness does make up for it, as do the toppings.  My favourite is the combination of soft and chewy mochi balls, and Cinnamon-flavoured crumbs.  Take a mouthful with the 3 together, and you have a burst of flavours and textures and the chill is always welcome on a humid summer's day.

But what I really like is Crumbs' alternative offering to frozen yogurt - the scones.  There are 3 flavours to choose from - cheese, raisin and chocolate.  It is the cheese hands down for me.  Crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, it is one of the better scones around.  And the very fragrance of cheese coming through as you sink in, great for breakfast with coffee, or tea with tea!

The war continues but it is no battle to embrace these as snack alternatives to crisps or chips, depending on where you hail from.  Let the battles begin and may everyone win so that the consumer continues to have choice!
