Bourbon Chocolate snack Potato chips Potato snack Snack

Jagachoco is mixed with chocolate & potato chips, save time but confusing taste

Confusing taste snack

We, Japanese people normally don’t try to eat potato chip with chocolate because potato chips is salty and oppositely chocolate is sweet.

Not so many person can imagine these things are in mouth at the same time and still delicious.

Chocolate  tip cokkie is understandable. because chocolate and cookie is both sweet and we can imagine it must be delicious. Chips plus sour cream and onion flavor is understandable because both is salty. But potate chips with chocolate is ununderstandable.

so normal conservative big company never try to sell Chocolate potato chips.

So I was surprised when I see this snack. and I was confusing. And I thought it could not be delicious.

But I love chocolate, and I love potato chips too. I eat both often different opotunity. and internal voice said to me that if youeat “Jagachoco” , you can save time and money.

But I never think it give me good taste. but my internal voice said to me again.

Certainly dalty and sweet never good taste convination. but if both go into stomach, it’s same result.

So I reluctantly buy “Jagachoco”.

And I eat it.

Jagachoco’s Potato chips is delicious. Jagachoco’s chocolate is delicious.

But I still cannot say Jagachoco is delicious or not.

I am still confusing.

When you eat Jagachoco in future, please tell me your opinion.

“Kushi dango, Surigoma-dare”, sewer worms looks “rice dumpling Japanese confection”

 

look bad, but taste is good, Japanese desert

You will wonder why sewer worms like egestion is neatly packed ? In Japan, we sell this at food store as dessert.

But please don’t misunderstand. lady and gentleman.

Certainly this look grotesque. But it is not egestion. It’s a Japanese confection. or it’s future egestion.

I must say this is very delicious. taste is sweet, and texture is very mild and soft. I promise if you eat it, you love this.

Interesting thing is that this sauce is toasted sesame seeds. You know sesame is good for anti aging.

This Japanese confection make you healthy by eating it. But I think if you just look this, your nerve will be damaged because of this grotesque looks.

Now you know this Japanese confection is delicious and healthy., don’t hesitate to try to eat it when you find out it in Japan.

Chocolate snack Lotte Snack UCC

Why this chocolate snack “Koala no march” was able to be best seller more than former similar products?

Secret of No1 selling product in Japan

This is “Koala no march (Koaranomaachi)”. This is best sellers snack and very popular in Japan. because it’s very delicious. Chocolate is injected in this Koala shape biscuit.

This chocolate snack was made in imitate of “Pakkuncho” that is released previous year, and this “Pakkuncho” is made in imitate of “Hello Panda” that was released nine year ago.

 

This is Pakkuncho
This is Pakkuncho

Lotte company marketing strategy is Koala

But you will wonder what is this name ? I admit that Japanese eat whale sometime. But almost all Japanese never eat Koala.

Lotte that make this “Koala-no-march” had known that this type of chocolate & biscuit snack can be good sales. So their marketing team tried to sell their new similar product more than former similar type chocolate snacks.
at that time, Koala is popular topic in Japan because Australia send real Koala to Japan in the first time.

So they print Koala on their chocolate snack.

And it become best seller more than former similar products. Now days, if I start to sell similar type chocolate snack, considering it from marketing point of view, I print Britoney Spears on it. and I can success to sell it in Japan.

Don’t hesitate to contact me, anyone who are looking for genius marketing person.

Drink Japan Frito-Lay Snack

The most awful & bad taste snack in Japan, Pepsi coke taste corn snack

Why this is there ?

DSC09543

When I go to grocery store, I found Pepsi coke package in corn snack area. I confused for a while because Pepsi package can be seen only at drink area or we never see Pepsi package at corn snack area until now in Japanese grocery store.

DSC09533

Certainly there are lots of taste corn snack in Japan. Salt taste, Consomme taste, Tacos taste, Wasabi taste, Piza taste, BBQ taste etc… all these taste are understandable and rational.

Because we can easilly imagine that “potate + Consomme = good taste” or “Potate + BBQ = good taste” etc.

But I think these are not human who can think that “Potate + Pepsi = good taste”.

But  believe or not, Pepsi taste corn snack is sold in this grocery store. Even though I don’t want to accept this strange snack existence, this is there. at that time, I understand the christan people’s feeling  who found out crucifixion Jesus.

Why I bought it ?

I know this must be bad taste, awful food. But strangely I cannot stop concering it. This must be never good taste. This never be nutrious. This is very unhealthy. Please tell me, who buy such worthless snack by spending valuable my money.

But you know I bought it at last.

I cannot explain logically why I spend money to such stupid food.

 

The name of this snack is, “Shuwa Shuwa Cola aji” in Japanese. it means “schwa schwa coke taste”. Shuwa is echoic word. and it never be used with corn snack normally.

DSC09534

Package say when you throw it in your mouth, corn snack popping like schwa schwa. this is surprising snack.

Enjoy refreshing Pepsi coke sweet taste.

DSC09535

DSC09536

I open package. inside corn snack seem to be quite ordinaly normal corn snack.

DSC09538

Color and surface is also basic corn snack.

DSC09541

DSC09539

 

And I throw it in my mouth with courage even though this must be awful taste.

Tell the truth, I regret to buy and regret to put it in my mouth when I taste it.

it is exactly schwa schwa feeling same as drinking popsi coke, but it accompany with salty corn snack taste.

and as I imagined, this is really bad taste.

My advice.

When you eat this disgusting corn snack, I recommend you empty your stomack because schwa schwa happen not only in your mouth, but also in your stomack.

I love Pepsi coke, I like to eat corn snack, but I run away if I am force to eat Peopi coke taste snack in future.

The most popular candy in Japan, Bontan ame is master piece. of snack

Botan ame is very popular and traditional snack

This is one of the most popular, basic and traditional snack in Japan. This snack, Bontaname is loved by almost all japanese people. because it’s delicious and cheap.

This is made from Bontan fruit, that is similar to grapefruit or orange, It’s kind of citrus. That juice is mixed as very soft candy. So color is seem to be natural orange. it give us healthy impression even though candy. and hardness or texture of this candy is amazingly sexy. Not so hard but never so soft. this antinomy feeling capture our heart.

Taste is sweet but bit citrus sour. and each candy is wrapped oblaat which is gelatinous, transparent film. We used it as medical item when we take bitter medicine.

Each color, texture, taste and package give us very unique,  exclusive experience. Jesus !

About Bontan Ame

This candy (ame) is made from the bontan, also buntan  fruit. This fruit is similar to a grapefruit but larger. Large specimens are the size of a volleyball. This fruit came to Japan from Southeast Asia so it grows in the southern-most island of Kyushu where the climate is most suitable.

Bontan ame was has been made by a company in Kagoshima City, Kyushu since 1926. It is said to be inspired by caramel. It is made of mochigyuhimizuame(traditional sweetener) and the bontan fruit juice.

Interestingly, each piece of candy is individually wrapped and is eaten with the wrapper on. The wrapper is made of oblaat which is gelatinous, transparent film that melts immediately on contact with the tongue. Oblaat originally came to Japan with Dutch medicine, it was used to wrap up bitter medicine in a package like modern-day gelatin capsules. In bontan ame it is utilized to prevent the sticky mochi-based amepieces from sticking to one another.

I am  chocoholic. I admit I sometime eat chocolate instead of breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Suppaiman is sweet dried plum. Not mummy but look like mummy.

It’s not serious food? name is joking you.

Tell the truth, this sweet snack name, “Suppaiman” is very not serious name.

Or I must say it is ignorant naming.

this name is made up of two words. one is Suppai and the other is Man.
Suppai means sour. Man means male human.

Yes, if Suppaiman is translated in English, that name is “Sour male human”.
If this company is serious, they stuck mummy in this package instead of dried plum.

How can you be serious with this name !

And I must tell you the truth now. Even though it say Suppai (Sour), this is sweet !
Yes. This snack name cheat customers.

mummy

This must be real Suppaiman according to the meaning of Suppaiman in Japanese.

This slit means that you can open from here. But there are no instruction how to open this package.

Nobody tell you how to open it. You must think up by yourself. It’s zen.
