On the shelf

I was hoping these Hokkaido Royal Milk Tea langue de chat (HK$78 for a box of 10) would be as good as those by the Yoku Moku brand, which are extremely delicate and delicious. Unfortunately, the Hokkaido brand doesn't come close - the biscuit seems thicker and the filling is far too sweet. They're sold at Fresh Mart, Sogo, 555 Hennessy Road, Causeway Bay (tel: 2833 8338).

Gastronomic Heaven

If everything goes as planned, by the time this column is published, I'll be in Paris, eating. I'll be there with two very good girlfriends - Meei, who's from Singapore, but is now living in Epernay (in France's Champagne region), and Jessie, from Hong Kong, but based in London.

Hong Kong has never been short of indulgences. From fashion trends to food crazes, the city has always been quick to catch on. Even in winter, people enjoy the smooth, sweet flavour of frozen yoghurt, or 'froyo'. Here's a list of the best places to get it in Hong Kong.

Easy, healthy steps to gain weight

Kevin asks: People say I am too skinny. Should I eat more to gain weight?

Wynnie says: Gaining weight healthily and keeping it on isn't as easy as you might think. Although you need to regularly eat more calories than you burn, you can't just stuff yourself with burgers and fries all day, since you still need to eat healthily.

Snacking can be good for you

By choosing the right food, eating between meals can be beneficial for your health

Grazing - or snacking - is becoming a normal way of life for most of us since we're all rushing from one activity to the next, and often there's not enough time to eat three main meals.

Warning on tainted yogurt

The Centre for Food Safety has advised against eating certain batches of Stonyfield Farm's organic, fat-free blueberry yogurt from the US as they may contain plastic or glass fragments. The centre said the affected product was packaged in 170-gram cups and carried product codes along the cup bottom marked with dates from April 13-15 and April 25-26, 2008.

Gas leaks

Why change?

I WAS very upset to find that the packaging for the natural yoghurt product of Diary Farm had been changed from a carton to a plastic container.

This is a shame when other companies are becoming more environmentally friendly.

I would like Dairy Farm to explain why it is going against this environmental trend.
