My mum first bought some chicken essence for me to take while preparing for the PSLE (too) many years ago. The smell and looks of it turned me off so much so I closed the bottle as soon as I opened it. Ever since then, never have I taken them for exams, pregnancies or confinement. (I’m sorry to those who gifted me with chicken essence before as they mostly went to my nephew who can appreciate it better.)
It definitely took some courage to try out Hao Yi Kang’s Lao Xie Zhen Premium Boiled Essence of Chicken even after they assured me their product is different from conventional ones. And what better time to do that when we were traveling and cooking our own meals? The Lao Xie Zhen Premium Essence of Chicken are packaged conveniently in sachets for room temperature storage – easy to pack into our luggage!
During our travels to non-Asian countries, we usually pack some instant noodles for a convenient dose of Asian food. It’s not the healthiest choice so to fix that, we added in the Lao Xie Zhen Premium Boiled Essence of Chicken into the soup and boy, did it taste good! I did a comparison with two bowls – one with Lao Xie Zhen and one without. The soup with Lao Xie Zhen did not have an instant noodle taste (sorry I have no idea how else to describe it) but instead tasted like chicken soup! We absolutely loved it!
With newfound confidence in the product, I decided to try the Premium Boiled Essence of Chicken straight from the sachet! It was really easy to prepare – soak an unopened sachet into a cup of hot water for 3 minutes, tear open the sachet and drink!
First impression does count. The looks and smell of the Lao Xie Zhen Premium Boiled Essence of Chicken make it so much more digestible (pun intended) than the conventional chicken essence. In a natural yellow colour, the Premium Boiled Essence of Chicken not only looks but tastes like a yummy chicken broth filled with goodness!
Premium Boiled Essence of Chicken is 100% natural – with no preservatives, additives and cholesterol, and said to be great for daily nourishment, improving immune system and combating fatigue. So now I’m banking on it to up our energy levels as we struggle to recover from jet lag after our return from London.
