This month’s Sweets Pack was filled with mini versions of delightful snacks for you to munch on the go! When you are snacking on mini chocolate cookies, mini melon pan, and mini butter rolls, you’ll get to experience Japan’s flavor scientists’ best (and cutest) work. Have a happy nibbles time!
- Rare Cheesecake Gummy
Cheesecake with a chewy texture!? No-bake cheesecakes are called “rare” cheesecakes in Japan and are flavored with lemon and yogurt. Indulge yourself with the refreshing sweetness because you’re worth it!
- Rock-Paper-Scissors Gummy
When you play rock-paper-scissors with your friends, bring and use this gummy to win a laugh, but you might lose the game. Comes with a grape flavor.
- SOURS Ramune Gummy
SOURS features the sour flavor and extremely chewy texture. Have these candies in your mouth when you have to stay up late to study, to work, or whenever you need the refreshment!
- Strawberry Cream Cake Roll
A fluffy cake roll infused with strawberry cream. The gentleman called Pierre Ojisan cooked this for you to have a sweet delight. We don’t know who he is, but the cake is cute and delicious!
- Puchi Biscuits Genovese
A new flavor from Puchi series. Genovese sauce means green basil sauce in Japan, and these biscuits taste like the flavor-rich sauce. Even though “Puchi” refers to the small size of each biscuit, the whole package is more than enough for you and a friend.
- Puchi Choco Cookies
Another flavor from Puchi series. The soft cookies are filled with milky sweet chocolate cream and chocolate chips. Bake them a bit in the oven to get them crunchy.
- Ramune Chocobi Cocoa
Ramune candies usually have fruit or soda flavors, but this one comes in a cocoa flavor. Or in the flavor of Chocobi, the Crayon Shin-chan’s favorite snack. Each one is individually wrapped, so you can bring some in your pocket for a snack on the go.
- Potepi Edamame
Hey, drinkers! Here is a perfect snack for you. Contains deep-fried peanuts, crisp potato chips, and edamame chips. Everything is favorite with Japanese nonbei (heavy drinkers). But of course, kids will also love it because it’s just addictively tasty.
- Piquant Kabukiage
Kabukiage is super crispy rice cracker. It’s deep-fried and flavored with piquant but slightly sweet soy sauce. Do you know why it’s called Kabuki-age? It’s because each piece is engraved with a Kabuki family crest even though it’s hard to tell when fried.
- Nerunerunerune Soda
The odd name describes the act of kneading because you need to knead on your own to make the candy! Here’s how you make it. (1) Put the powder No.1 into the round hollow on the plastic tray. (2) Detach the triangle container at the corner of the tray, drop water on the powder using it, and knead well using the spoon. (3) Put the powder No.2, knead again until the color changes. (4) Now it’s ready to eat! Decorate your Neruneru with the crushed candy in the sachet No.3.
- Doraemon Choco Puffs
Tender-crisp corn puff snacks coated with chocolate. Comes in a cute Doraemon packaging and contains a sticker of the “cat-shaped robot” or his friends.
- Mini Salt Butter Rolls
Bite-sized kawaii cookies that look and taste like salt butter rolls. This simple kind of roll is extremely popular in Japan. It’s a pity to eat the lovely cookies, but you can’t stop once you start. Read this blog post to know more about Japanese bread!
- Mini Melon Pan
Another bite-sized bread but these ones look and taste like melon pan! You can enjoy the sugary crispy top of melonpan, which is the best part of the bread. But don’t expect that it tastes like melon. It’s called this way just because of the appearance.
- Ume Potato Rings
A new flavor from Habanero series, which features the very hot chili pepper, habanero. This one is peppered with ume powder, kelp, and bonito, and is extremely tangy. The sourness is at the maximum level but absolutely addictive.
- Umai Ball Choco Cream Puffs
Bite-sized cream puffs filled with soft chocolate cream. The package looks almost the same as that of the famous Umai Bo, but these are “balls” instead of “a bar”.
