Good 7-eleven Food

Postby twonavels » 20 May 2012, 11:07

I am addicted to the new baggies they keep in the freezer (with the ice-cream).

They have two new pastry-type rolls: chicken roll and beef roll. The beef roll is okay, but I LOVE the chicken roll. I love the taste of the cheese and chicken.
I like the little bag of chicken wings too.
This will be a great addition to those train station-style dinner boxes I usually eat. Those are yummy! The only dinner box I like better is a place near Carrefour in Xindian where they actually barbeque the meat.

What is your 7-eleven fix? Strangely enough a search on here only brought up beer discussions, urine eggs, and slurpees.

What I want is the secret transmission of the sacred knowledge of tea egg bag technique.

No matter what I do, I cannot pick up just one bag for my tea eggs. :doh:

I always end up with two in my hand. Maybe my chi is dispersed or too yin from drinking cold beverages or maybe I just need a few more years of training.

As far as good food, the new salsa flavor potato chips are quite tasty. I sure miss Mexican food.
Why not???

If you are what you eat, then I guess that makes me "fast, cheap, and easy"!

I love the chicken wraps, too. I usually buy 10 when I see them in stock. VERY convenient and microwaveable and quite tasty. :thumbsup:

On the shelf below the wraps are a quite palatable spaghetti and meat sauce. I haven't tried the bagged version as I am quite happy with the container variety. That said, the same package can be found at RT Mart for 45NT. Quite a savings over the 68NT price tag at sevey.

The chicken and beef wraps are so-so microwaved, but if you take them home and put them into a toaster oven, they're quite good.

I know it's not 7-11, but I love the mashed potato with cheese and bacon at Family Mart.

I like the freshly cut fruit. Saves me the trouble of actually attempting to make any effort to eat something healthy.

Y'all been here way far too long if you think that those frozen turds come anywhere close to being even considered chicken wraps.
Warps, more likesay.

I don't eat much of their ready to eat as it seems ripe for mishandling and other causes of food poisoning.

I do like the fact that the sometimes carry Black Devil cigarettes, and Sam Adams, which are both considered sustenance doa'n ow're weigh.
That said, I do like their nuts, and some of the weird Japanese stuff they get can be a treat. A few months ago they had this Nippon brownie pack which was quite fine.
