    Uh Japan? Can we talk?


    Meanwhile in my home country:

    They're made of chocolate.

    It's interesting you brought that up, though! I absolutely did not think about it as an issue until you said it. :P

    stars_n_kissesHace 1 mes#78220170Nice review - I might give such type a review a try, too (Considering my coming Candysan delivery has a Okinawa Lychee drink with it.)
    Some things to comment to:
    - Those star candies happen to be called Kompeito (Thanks to CLAMP's Kobato)
    - As kcf1117 said, it would be intersting to see those enviromental guideline, though I do noticed it on say recent Kitkat packages it's coming to fruition somehow
    - Seems like my tongue to the mint flavour better on. As for the recent flavours (Berry mix and Watermelon) do you plan to give them a shot or did the Mint Taiyaki killed it for you?
    - As soon you showed the pizza chips featuring Spider Man, this damn thing has to popped up my head, so thanks for that XD : www.youtube.com...


    I always love to see more candy/snacks/drinks reviews! :D

    I didn't know the star candies had an official name, so I'll add it to the blog, thanks! :) And oh, what did the Kit Kat packaging you had say? Something about improved materials?

    I might be interested in one of those Taiyaki cookies again, but I don't want to try anything 'wild' soon. Maybe just try their basic chocolate or strawberry flavor next to see if I dare any others. :D This was my first time buying a Puku Puku Tai.

    And LOL I was completely expecting this video instead:



    CloudberryHace 1 mes#78220193I'm very curious about the Puku Puku mint cookie lol. I had an ice cream that actually tasted like mint toothpaste and I thought that was pretty bad.
    And those melon gum are bomb. I grew up eating chewing on those! The flavor goes away quickly but at least they don't become really hard after a long chewing session.


    OH NO. That must be like...licking frozen toothpaste? If they had just used mint only, like the herb, it could have been nice...maybe? I mean, I like mint tea, so...

    I had no idea they were so wide-spread in the USA, another user was talking about them as well! It might be worth it to try to buy a bigger range of flavors later. :)

    galablueHace 1 mes#78220151I love living vicariously through a blog like this! I am vegetarian and don't eat fish so I am always wary of getting a mixed candy/food bag from Japan as you don't really know what you'll get. However I love Japanese sweets and food so it's super fun to read. Actually, I grew up eating that gum -- the melon flavor to me is very subtle and refreshing. The strawberry one is another favorite. Grape's always the one me and my brother threw out. I think the last one is orange? Can't remember.

    Happy to hear you enjoyed it so much! :D A lot of Japanese food and snacks have 'hidden' fish-related ingredients in there and there is possibility for gelatin in candies. I think you are the most safe sticking to chocolate, cookies and drinks from Japan, but always good to try to read up on the ingredients before buying. :)

    Ah, I had no idea the gum came in multiple flavors (I guess they are randomized in the Yaokin Pack)! The melon one was pretty neat as well.

    victorviperHace 1 mes#78220115Okonomiyaki is really pretty easy to make - it's no more difficult to make than a pancake. You just mix up the batter, add some cabbage, and then fry it with whatever toppings you want. I usually make mine western style with bacon, bonito flakes, Japanese mayonnaise, and sauce (I usually just use a mixture of ketchup and Worcestershire sauce).
    I don't eat it too often (leftovers don't keep too well and it's not exactly health food!), but it's an interesting change of pace every now and then.


    Huh~, for some reason I always thought it was way more complicated (because I don't have any kind of big grill as well). And hehe, I guess it's a way to make sort-of healthy ingredients quite unhealthy, just like any kind of deep fry! I'm still very intrigued to try it at one point, but the Shin-Chan kit is up first! :)

    MaakieHace 1 mes#78219973Fun fact: antacid over where I live now tastes like licorice. ^^''' Licorice would have been better than eating toothpaste.
    Oooh, so are you good at making okonomiyaki? Is it hard to do? I have recipes stored on my computer to make it one day, but for some reason I keep on skipping them and cooking other things when I make a new pick.

    victorviperHace 1 mes#78219727Everything in there looked pretty good, with the possible exception of the giant antacid mint cookie.
    It will be interesting to see a full review of the okonomiyaki/beer set. Every now and then, I try to make okonomiyaki at home, and so it should be interesting to see what the candy-fied version ends up looking/tasting like.
