Maggi Hot Heads: Green Chilli, Peri Peri & Barbeque Pepper: Review & Price.



Hello people,

YouTube videos recently went viral about a Spicy Korean Noodle which burnt away the mouths of every possible being! And then, Maggi launched it’s ‘Hot Heads’ variant. Instantly, I had comparisons in my mind. Though I’ve not really tried the Spicy Korean Noodles but I believed it’s a war declared by Maggi in the race of offering the spiciest noodles. All black background and dazzling flames of fire comprised the commercial. Since ages I’ve been a Maggi fan and the new advertisement was like a soldiers’ call to the war in the crises! I looked out for these in 3-4 shops. The Chicken variant was available in 50% of the shops but I have no clue why they detested the vegetarian version. When, I finally landed onto a shop with these vegetarian ones, I bought these three instead of trying just one!

So let’s see how the new Maggi Hot Heads Fared!


Green Chilli: The packaging claims it to be the spiciest. I had my expectations high! Though I usually add in extra salt and spice to my maggi, I steered away this time because I am young and I don’t intend to die so soon! *LOL* The cooked maggi looks faintly green in colour due to its main green component. I gulped it down quite easily and there’s not really a spice hit that you get on eating this. The spice gets to you after you’ve eaten it. That too is acceptable and lasts long only for 5 minutes or so. It might give a slight burning sensation around the mouth, but you can wash it off easily. In short, people with a spicy palette would like it but if you desire too spicy an experience, then you still need to rely upon your kitchen’s spices.

Peri Peri: So this time, I craved for peas and seriously I look out for ways I can incorporate them into my snacks or meals! I threw them in the pan along with maggi & added a pinch of salt and chilli powder. It tasted pretty good and spicy. Again with this one as well, the spice factor emerges at its peak once you are done slurping upon all your noodles. After eating, I felt as if I truly ate something Indian with appropriate spice into it. It kinda tastes like that peri peri masala from Mac Donald’s Peri Peri fries which were available only for a limited period! *wink* As far as the appearance goes, the tastemaker looked different with more of orange shade into it which showed up on the maggi as well once it was cooked. Though faint color difference in all three variants can be detected but it is really not that drastic.


Barbeque Pepper: This one is kinda bland to taste. You can’t really figure out that it is a pepper variant. While in other, the main ingredient does stand out but not with this variant. It’s no doubt spicy and like the other ones, in 'barbeque pepper' as well your tongue would feel attack of the spicy ingredient post eating. While slurping, the same slight sweetness lingers.

Final Verdict: Overall, I think these are not really burning spicy that you’d end up crying but just enough for our Indian taste buds. People who cannot tolerate spice, may wanna stay away!  For those who don’t mind little zing to their food palette can definitely give it a shot! Ironically, people like me still think of adding little more tastemaker/spices!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Have you tried these yet? If yes, which one was your favourite? Also, what instant noodle do you enjoy the most?

Until Next Time,

Take Care <3

My Cutesy Stash - Miniso Haul Unleash!

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Side Story - I intentionally changed the font of this blog post; reason as such is nothing but I decided to break-free from the monotonous font type. But unfortunately, the font decided to bug me later on so I ended up with the same comforting font. 
In today's blog post, I will be sharing with you all my recent haul from the store of Miniso. For people who haven't encountered a Miniso outlet as of yet, Miniso is a well known Japanese brand which brings to you a lot of quirky and cute stuff which is reasonably priced and none of your money will go wasted, trust me! They have an amazing collection of utility products from the genre of beauty, kitchenware, stationery, electronics, accessories, etc. Moreover, the prices of these products start from INR 150 and the maximum, I believe, is around INR 1000, that too for PU bags. 


Recently, I happen to discover another Miniso Delhi store which was mere 2 metro stations away from where I live.…

3 Best Toners for Combination to Oily/Acne Prone Skin

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Today’s post is an in-depth discussion on toners in general, what’s been trending lately and inexpensive toners that are available in case you have a skin type that synchronizes with mine. Now, it’s as hard to classify my skin into one genre as a Myer’s personality test’s results. In short, probably those given two options won’t be enough to understanding my personality. Anyways, let’s cut short weird examples and focus on to the topic that has been raised. Naturally, to initiate further this discussion, we need to discuss what a toner is and why we need one in our lives. 

WHAT IS A TONER? Male or female, we are entering a no-gender biased zone. The concept behind toners is that the facial skin, even after the process of cleansing, is left with trails of pollution, bacteria, dust or for that fact, some makeup. Moreover, the harshness of chemical components endowed within the cleanser may affect the pH level of your skin. So in order to revers…

Cute Box March 2018 Edition - Women’s Era | Unboxing & Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Is anyone out here, bitten by the bug which is commonly known as the hoarding disorder? Did I just hear a ‘yes’? Well, you’re not alone in this because you’ve got my back, girl. Be it lipsticks, makeup products, skincare, cute packaging, empty bottles or containers, nail paints, stationery and what not; I love storing them all. My mind would weave a scenario wherein I’d really need these. There are times when I would assume that a particular container will be using for some DIY project. But that hardly happens. Currently, I’m thinking about making a terrarium. They are hell expensive on websites and I ain’t going to spend that much on mere plants. If I do manage to create one, I’d probably also make a blog post dedicated exclusively on that. Today we shall be unboxing an affordable jewellery subscription box which has been available in India since few months.
So as I was saying, jewellery is bae! Be it rings, bracelets or earrings; you will…
