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.…

Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask - Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! 😃😄 I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” 😂
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask
So…

Bloggers Event: #PoutItRight with Jaquline USA's Lip Pops Matte Lip Tints

Hi Guys Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Last month, I was invited by the team of New U (Dabur subsidiary) on their launch of Lip Pop Matte Tints. I’ve been to their events before and previous one, I presume, was the release of their BB Stroke Nail Enamel.Now they have also incorporated some vibrant matte shades by the name ‘Back2School’. I must warn you to go visit their stores ASAP as this range has a gorgeous mint shade which I’ve never seen amongst affordable Indian brands! 



The event took place in Smoke House Deli at DLF Place Mall Saket (Delhi) in the afternoon. The place had an amazing decor with quirky walls and an interplay of white and grey theme running everywhere. With around 50 bloggers, we got to try out different shades of Lip Pops and nail lacquers that were recently launched in the New U store. I was so excited that I got rid of my texture nail paint then & there and tried the shades that were placed at the counter.
