Vitasoy Dessert Tofu

220 grams for HK$5.50, Wellcome

Who knew pre-packaged food could taste as good as freshly made stuff? Made from organic soya beans, this was smooth, light and so silky that I downed the whole packet - all 145 calories and 3.3 grams of fat - in under a minute.

Verdict: dangerously delicious; best to savour every mouthful to avoid overeating.

Morinaga Tofu Soft

290 grams for HK$24.90, Wellcome

This was so soft that it disintegrated as soon as I tried to slice it. It did, however, take my simple home-made noodle soup up a notch. The package provides an interesting recipe for a pineapple-orange breakfast shake.

Verdict: fresh and tasty, but would be easier to eat if it held together better.

Sun Fat Heung Oat Bran Fresh Bean Curd Dessert

400 grams for HK$7.80, Wellcome

While oat bran makes this even more nutritious, it gives the bean curd a patchy, inconsistent texture that is hard to swallow. It's also pretty bland.

Verdict: lacks smoothness and taste; I couldn't eat more than few spoonfuls of this.
