1 We like to eat dried fruit to balance out our less-healthy snacks but usually stick to easy-to-find varieties such as mango and papaya. However, we recently tasted this delicious and unusual dried pineapple by Nature's Sensation. At HK$29.50 for 84 grams, it will not become a regular indulgence, though. It's sold at Oliver's in the Prince's Building, Central (tel: 2180 7710).

2 Cold noodles served with an iced dipping sauce, vegetables and chilled beancurd is one of our favourite cooling meals when it's blazing hot outside. ThreeSixty (The Landmark, Central, tel: 2111 4480; Elements, Kowloon, tel: 2196 8066) is selling Springlife organic green tea buckwheat noodles for HK$15.30 for 240 grams.

3 Some oils are used for their neutral taste while others are prized because they add a subtle flavour to a dish. Spectrum almond oil has been expeller pressed and refined for high-heat cooking, although it can be drizzled over a dish, as you would extra virgin olive oil. Another use - as stated on the bottle - is 'for skincare and massage'. It sells for HK$64 for a 236ml bottle at Oliver's.
