Random Picture 43


First of all, I'm sorry for the awkwardly censored picture of my husband. Normally, I would just show the product, but this particular picture required the ability to compare sizes so having him stand next to the display allows you to see the relative sizes. My husband is holding a large Wonka bar as a further point of comparison.

Every year around the start of December, shops start to offer up giant kid's snacks that parents can buy for Christmas or New Year's. The items at the top are huge versions of Yaokin's "bo" (stick) snacks which I have reviewed before. They are usually 12 cm. (4.7 in.) long. I can't imagine anyone managing to eat those monster ones, but I think they are really more about the novelty than actually eating them.

I just got a box from a Tokyo friend of mine today, and inside were five of those Umaibou bags. They're not giant Umaibou, they're 40-piece variety bags (いろいろ味). Funny enough, she also sent me some Happy Turn (also in your photo), which I'd never heard of until today.

Yesterday, I groped one of those bags and realized that it is full of tiny ones, but I figured I'd let the post stand as originally stated to show I can be wrong. ;-)

Happy Turn is delicious. I hope you enjoy it! Of course, you have to like vinegar...

I love these and I wish it was a giant one instead! I did a whole big review of them on my blog
