Frozen food 2018-2019
Juice boxes - $0.50
Love juices. Have nothing else to say. Easy to drink when stressed, gives a good sugar boost, is very tasty. Only downside is you have to buy two of them in order to pay debit.
Pop - $0.50
The regular pop. Sometimes have Pepsi (my love!) and sometimes Diet Coke (due to requests).
Exam season is fueled with Yerba Mate and Red Bull which costs a bit more ($1.75).
Haagen dazs - $2.00
Good ice cream. Everyone knows it's good. Current VPI stocks around 6-8 boxes of these, but they run out by the end of the week. Some cube-ians seem like they use this as their meal. (Do not try at home.) A hard yet soft shell with hazelnuts embedded on them, DO NOT DROP these on the carpet floor, think of a smarter way to eat it. Methods include nibbling the shell THEN the ice cream, or eating the ice cream inside of its packaging. My method is to put the whole ice cream in my mouth as soon as possible.
Yogurt - $0.50
Good stuff when they're there. Even better when close to expiring so the Cube lets them out on $0.25. Great served cold, will give you a fruit boost if you hadn't had them for a long time.
Cookies - $0.50
Just normal Costco cookies. Good sugar boost. A little bit on the chewy side.
Chips - $0.50
A variety of chips.
Chocolate bars - $1.25
A little bit on the expensive side. However a great sugar boost. I don't pick these up usually because I'm good with the sugar I get from juice. Chocolate bars are too sweet for me.
Seasonal: Cheese sticks, Deep-fried peas
NOTE: Please use a paper plate when microwaving these, not styrofoam.
Steak and cheese pockets - $1.00
2 minutes in microwave + leave for 2 minutes
Sounds boujier than the usual pizza pops. Fellow cube-ian rated 3.5/10 where he rated the pizza pops 3/10. I personally rate it 2.5/10. Worse than pizza pops. Cheese feels more quality, but couldn't find steak anywhere. Leaves a disgusting cheese smell in the Cube.
Pizza pops - $1.00
2 minutes on each side
Usually bacon+ham+cheese flavor. 2 in a pack. Will not make you full, that's for sure. Really hot when you take it out of the microwave and leaves a somewhat more bearable smell in the Cube. Usually people appreciate that it smells like pizza pops because it makes them wanna buy one too. Not that good of a smell in my personal opinion. But I enjoy eating it sometimes. Fair amount of ham and cheese in there.
Fried rice - $2.25
3 minutes inside the plastic packaging (I recommend using two paper plates - one for the plate and other as the lid)
Chicken, soy sauce, vegetables. Can't be bad. If you hate peas, corn, or bell peppers, this might be a bad choice for you. I personally really like them, they won't make you full but it's a pleasant quality food than the other frozen ones. It is a bit on the pricey side though.
Lasagna - $3.00
5 minutes with the packaging - tear the corner open before microwaving
#1 most expensive food at the Cube. Decent amount, won't make you full though. I personally feel that the rice makes me more full. Is very hot out of the microwave. A little bit on the greasy side. Eat with knife and fork - ration the lasagna into bits and pieces and scoop with fork. (Beware, HOT)
Udon - $1.25
Kimchi noodles - $1.25
Not bad. Doesn't taste anything like kimchi though. It's a good spice out of the ordinary food. There's no chopsticks at the Cube, so it's quite an experience having to use a fork to eat ramen. There's also no rice so as a Korean you feel like you're missing out on the "rice with broth" experience which I dearly miss.
