Japanese Snacks

I bought two packets of Japanese Snacks last week. The Cheese Almond Biscuit Cracker and Seaweed Biscuit Cracker. A lot of jargons (oops.. I mean Japanese words) on the package which I don't understand, but who cares :) As long as it is edible and not poisonous ...

Cheese Almond Cracker
The cheese almond cracker is nice and I'm going back to buy more..

Seaweed cracker
Nothing special with this seaweed cracker. Any Japanese snacks lover out there?

I love japanese snacks!!! they are the best snacks on this earth (red: healthy, yummy, sometimes good or funny taste, interesting shape/wrapping, etc). :)

carcar said...

gimme five selba!

yah yah yah! japanese snack lover! japanese food lover! japanese man lover! oopps did i say man here?

hehehe...

ya japanese food are somehow more healthier than other snacks available here, and it is mainly imported and hence so expensive! i like their packaging most of the time, but sometimes some taste are really weird, haha...

the cheese almond cookies looks really really good! i can feel the 'crack' and 'hmmmm'.. and really feel like taking a B-I-T-E !!

pls FEDex some, or UPs...

but don't FEDex+UPs = FED UP !

wahaha...

selba,
yeah.. Most Japanese snacks are healthy.. with nice packaging.. just that, more pricey compared to other snacks/local snacks ..

carcar,
Japanese man lover? oops... *cough*

FEDEX to u? cannot lah.. (cos I want to eat). Carcar can always get her own supply in Singapore :D There are 3 different varieties of Japanese snacks with cheese from the same company :) The other 2, I haven't try yet.

Btw, UP = union pacific or ?
*salute u* for the summation :
FEDex + UPs = FED UP

I like the cheese almond biscuit better. The seaweed snack is slightly on the bitter side. Do try the array of japanese chewy sweets. My children loves it.

Those look really good.

I like small rice crackers, flavored with soy sauce and wrapped in nori (seaweed) - "nori maki senbei".

Alicia said...

i nver had these snacks b4.. n i think dey're quite xpensive rite? :/

Chen said...

it's my life story,
Japanese chewy sweets? Never try that before.. The first time I see the word "Japanese chewy sweets", somehow, "marsh mallow" comes to my mind.. Well, I know this has nothing to do with marsh mallow :) Might be becos I just have marsh mallow yesterday afternoon :)

pandabonium,
This sounds like the second thing (seaweed biscuit) in the picture.. I should rename those biscuit as crackers :) I guess crackers is the appropriate word instead of biscuit :D

alicia,
Imported from Japan.. yeah.. it is a bit pricey.. Different supermarket sold at different price. The Almond Cheese Crackers (20 packets per pack) cost me RM 9.30 at Sunshine Hypermarket and RM 9.99 at Cold Storage, Gurney Plaza. The seaweed crackers are cheaper, but I can't remember the exact price.

carcar said...

hi chen,

UPS = United Parcel Service

Chen said...

carcar,
to me, (in hospital context) UPS = Uninterruptible Power Supply. Well, we need backup power supply for certain equipments and life support systems..
