Japanese Snacking Adventure

Just got back from 7/11 – don’t laugh, they are not the convenience stores we have in the states.  These are convenience stores to the epic degree.  They have bento box lunches and snacks/candies galore!

As stated in an earlier post I am going to try difference snack type things while in Japan.  Most of them I have no idea what they are, sometimes not even after eating it. Maybe you can help me identify it.

This week’s take from 7/11 are:

20130512_195501These are small chocolate dipped bread sticks that look like fantasy mushrooms.  Quite good, not sweet but I am guessing the carbohydrate count is probably something I should not indulge in often.  Glad I know they are there though, for emergency chocolate fixes!





20130512_195351These are exactly like American Bugles







These are snack packs, crunchy and salty rice crackers.  Very nice but leaves a bit of a funky after taste for my palette.  My favorite part of these is the blue stripe on the packaging that is the only English on it.  Says:

  “This food is made from carefully selected ingredients and methods.  Hope this food will bring you a wonderful time”

Why yes, I think it will, Thank You for caring. =P





This actually has English translation on it. Says Strawberry Corn Choco.  It has a very thin candy coating and is quite airy inside. Very strawberry-ish.   I am a fan.  One of the sweeter snacks I’ve had here yet and probably not very good for the diabetic Diana.




I’m looking forward to next week’s snacking adventure.  We are likely heading in to Tokyo to watch some Roller Derby so I’ll see what fun snacks I can find there.  Until then, munch on people!
