About Me

I am a Canadian expat who lives in Korea and the Philippines. I was reluctant to join iherb at first because I am able to purchase many imported organic, natural products in the Philippines (though at double the suggested retail price). In Korea, it's just too difficult, and even more costly to purchase these items. The reasonable prices, low shipping cost, and super fast shipping won me over. Now I don't have to compromise on the types of items I want to use and consume. It makes it easier to get on track to healthier living.

Superior Product

Posted by noonchee on Feb 12, 2014 | Verified Purchase

I travel to the Philippines a lot working for a non-profit and find myself in rural mosquito-infested areas for long periods of time. It is not uncommon for me to get 20-30 bites every day that I am there. I have tried everything from numerous sprays to coils to electric diffusers to candles. None of them worked as well as this Greenerways Spray. If I had a lot of money, I would buy stock in this company if I could (and then import it to places like this). I spray once in the morning and maybe a touch up in the mid-afternoon before the mosquitoes wake up at dusk. I am BITE FREE now! This stuff WORKS! One day I was working in an office that is home to aggressive mosquitoes. I sprayed myself and literally saw the mosquitoes flying far away from me. About 4 hours later, I would notice 1 or 2 come a little close - but they still wouldn't come near my skin or attempt to bite. I would say this spray has works 100% for about 6 hours (of course this will differ person to person). Of course, the smell is not pleasant. It's a bit overwhelming when you first spray, but considering how effective it is, I don't care.

Great Snack

Posted by noonchee on Feb 26, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Great crunch - crispy texture! Less salty than conventional chips but the smoky bbq flavour is so robust, you don't feel like you're compromising on taste at all! A great snack that is less guilt-inducing than fried potato chips. I liked it so much I immediately ordered more!

Thanks for your feedback!

Great Snack

These are great - crispy, crunchy and not too salty. I love the taste of the edamame, and don't feel as guilty snacking on these in front of the TV!

Thanks for your feedback!

unsure...

I like buckwheat. In Korea, I eat lots of food with buckwheat flour - from noodles to pancakes. I drink buckwheat tea. I even have a buckwheat pillow. So, I thought I'd love this item, especially since I love Steel Cut Oats and cream of wheat. However, I didn't care for this as a hot cereal. I didn't want to waste the rest of the cereal. After it had cooled, it resembled rice that was a little overcooked. So, I had some with my meal in lieu of rice, and enjoyed it that way. It's a healthier alternative to rice - though the texture needs improvement. I will keep trying though - perhaps it is the way that I cooked the hot cereal. If it doesn't improve, I will use the rest of the bag as a healthy rice substitute.

Thanks for your feedback!

Okay product

These are not as pretty as they look in the picture. The outside part is not shiny but matte, so it doesn't look as polished as it does in the picture. I realise this is a tiny point, but I bought these mostly because they looked so cute in the picture. Also, I thought the handle part would have been for measuring tablespoons and teaspoons (even though this part is not mentioned in the description...i guess I had seen others that were designed like that...), but they are not. They do snap together nicely.

Way Too Much Wasabi

Posted by noonchee on Jan 20, 2014 | Verified Purchase

I enjoy the Lightly Salted version, so I thought I'd give this one a try since I love wasabi. The wasabi flavouring is very uneven; some handfuls are mildly flavoured, while other handfuls are overwhelmingly overpowering with wasabi. Exercise caution, especially to those not used to wasabi. On the upside, my sinuses are completely cleared!

Thanks for your feedback!

Full of Flavor

Posted by noonchee on Jan 20, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Wow! I never expected these to have so much genuine flavour. Also, the texture of the gummy is really pleasurable - far from conventional gummies that taste and feel artificial or even waxy. It feels like biting into a dense preserved fruit.

Thanks for your feedback!

Great Garlic Flavor

Posted by noonchee on Mar 07, 2014 | Verified Purchase

This has a great garlic flavour that tastes fresh. I like that it is a small size, though still has a lot of inside. Previously I've always bought larger sized bottles, which are harder to get through and so the garlic powder ends up not being optimal taste-wise.

Thanks for your feedback!

In LOVE

I LOVE this chocolate bar. The silky, creamy milk chocolate contrasts beautifully with the crunch of the salty-sweet toffee and almonds (which were unnoticeable in texture over the toffee pieces, but fully present in flavour). And the segmented pieces are marked with a heart - how adorable. What's not to love? P.S. I enjoy this mini-chocolate bar size. It's enough to satisfy yet keeps you from over-indulging.

good alternative to potato chips

Posted by noonchee on Jan 20, 2014 | Verified Purchase

I'm a potato chip girl, but I thought I'd try these as a healthier alternative. While I still don't get the same pleasure as snacking on unhealthy potato chips, these do satisfy enough. The chips are puffy (not good) but still crispy (very good). And the Sour Cream & Onion flavour is right on I weighed out the servings sizes and it worked out to 3 generous (a little more than serving size) portions per bag.

Thanks for your feedback!
