BRAND'S essence of Chicken

Received this as a gift during my confinement period. That was in September 2008. Got 2 boxes (6 bottles each) and now, still have 3 bottles waiting for me to consume.



A well sealed bottle and easy to open cap.


The goodness of essence of chicken



The ingredient


An empty bottle. All inside my tummy in less than a minute. Pressing my nose and gobble down ASAP. Then, drink a large amount of water to flush the stinky smell from my mouth. Some like the smell, but I don't.


And due to the expiry date was still a long way, I took my own sweet time to drink them.
Don't really like the taste, but still bearable. That's the reason it took me forever to finished up. Wonder when will I consume the 3 bottles left in the drawer. Hopefully before the expiry date.

  1. I personally like the taste of the essence, yet I am a bit skeptical about how well does it help to boost our energy. I had 2 boxes during my confinement but I didn't really feel any 'kicks' from drinking it, it's Benedict D.O.M that revived me during the awful confinement! ^-^

  4. I dislike the chicken essence taste too, but the pati ikan haruan's smell is more acceptable to me. Btw, I saw Chinese restaurants using Brands chicken essence to pour into a steamed fish or even steamed frog dish to give the taste more 'kick'.

  12. I received many boxes during my confinement in 2006 but never drank a single drop, i think. The smell makes me nauseous. Hub helped me drink all up :p Recently, I found another 3 bottles (Brands also), with cordycep one but had to throw away cos expired 1 year+ :-( Although I hate it, still feel sayang...

  14. I love chicken essence alot. Anyway if you don like to drink in that way, u can actualy steam a fish (normal steam with soy souce, not the spicy recipe), then before you want to eat, pour the essence inside, let it remain in the pot for about less than 1 min to let the fish absorb the essence. Taste quite good u know. but make sure fish is fresh enuff..

  17. Sometimes I drink this too...to get some energy ;) I don't really mind the taste and smell. Maybe it's better if you warm it up in a glass of hot water :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Mummy-J ~ Oh..this receipe is new to me. And yes...I can fully utilize them at one go. Hahaha..no need to worry about the expiry date. But MIL is the master of the kitchen. I think I can only try it in May since she is going for a long week holidays. haha....I can conquer the kitchen then.

    Mommy to chumsy ~ Does it really help in boosting energy? Oh...I did not warm them up thou.

  20. I don't like the smell too. I wonder how much of the original from the chicken itself they used to make the esssence. Somehow I prefer to have an original one rather then convenient pack drink, it sure full loads of preservative.

    So better finish it soon, else wasted..

    ReplyDelete
  21. Haha you better than me. At least you get to finish before expiry date. Mine... still sitting there.. I think expired already... Hahaha!

  22. I hate the taste of Brands Essence! I rather drink something nicer like bird's nest or something haha!! I think they also have in pill form now in not mistaken! That's much easier to swallow! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  23. CH Voon ~ Wah..that sound like eating elixir ('xian dan'). haha...

    Lemonjude ~ As stated in the pack, it containts 99.74% of chicken essence. Looks like it is a real goodies. haha...but the taste just scare me away.

    cheeyee ~ GOSH!! You are also keeping them. Hahaha..... I felt wasted if did not drink them. So force myself to drink lo. Moreover, people said they are good for health. It is actually meant for my confinement but I kept them till now...my baby already can RUN !!

    foongpc ~ LOL. Bird's nest of course delicious because they are sweet. I like that too. haha.. How come nobody give me bird's nest during my confinement? what a waste. haha. Never know bout the BRANDS pill.
