Random Weekend Picture 3
Three days ago, I took a walk around the neighborhood and noticed that the Setsubun Aero and KitKat bars which I reviewed in February are being relegated to bargain bins at Okashi no Machioka. One of the reasons not to release such bars is that the date at which they were released is so obvious. The original price was 120 yen ($1.33) and the sale price is less than half that at 59 yen (65 cents). Note that there are more KitKats left than Aeros. I guess the Japanese aren't any fonder of the dirt-like flavor of the Setsubun KitKats than I was.
This sort of steep discounting is actually quite rare.
