Takoyaki puff snack

Posted by Linda on 04. 2012 0 comments
I saw this Takoyaki puff snack from Fritolay Japan in NapaJapan's catalog and didn't hesitate to order it as I love takoyaki:
I was pleasantly surprised by how big these takoyaki puff snacks were since I was expecting them to be a lot smaller in size than they really were. They also had a nice soft crunch to them and literally melty in my mouth. The seasonings were substantial too, the puffs were seasoned with a mixture of Takoyaki sauce seasoning and aonori (green seaweed) flakes, giving the puffs a substantial amount of flavor and aroma that I was able to smell as soon as I had opened the packet. The balance of the takoyaki puffs and the seasonings complemented each other really well.
Overall this was a tasty snack, very flavorsome and the puffs were soft in texture and melty in my mouth, the seasonings were as close as you could get to the actual taste of takoyaki, of course it will never be quite the same as an actual takoyaki.
However, I think Fritolay Japan's Corn Potage snack from their 'Gourmet Cheetos' range is still superior though.

Gourmet Cheetos - Corn Potage snack

Sorry for not updating for a while, as you all know by now I am one very busy person

Anyway, today I'll be reviewing about this pack of yummy munchies manufactured by Fritolay Japan that I also ordered from J-List.com:

in case anyone here doesn't know, corn potage is basically a very creamy type of corn soup, with varying ingredients to suit the individual.
Part of Fritolay Japan's 'Gourmet' range of Fritolay's popular American cheese puff 'Cheetos' snacks, these decent sized crunchy puff sticks were loaded with strong flavors, seasoned to perfection with such accuracy in flavor in replicating this popular corn soup. Although cheese is the staple seasoning for 'Cheetos' snacks, the lovely flavor of corn from the corn potage seasonings was particularly dominant that the usual cheese flavor was either non-existent or too subtle for my taste buds to detect. Coupled with the soft crunchiness of the sticks, these irresistible lip-smacking munchies will have you wanting for more.
My only regret was only ordering 1 packet of these yummies, if I knew these were going to be this irresistibly tasty, I certainly would've wanted to order more!

Doritos Gourmet - Spicy Sausage

This is from Fritolay Japan's 'Doritos' gourmet range of corn chips...call me baka (stupid), but I actually ordered this at Jlist.com by mistake!I was intending to order another Doritos flavor, but "accidentally" added this spicy sausage flavor in my shopping cart instead...and yet I didn't even bother to double-check the items in my shopping cart CAREFULLY before I finalized it! Atashi hontou ni baka!
well anyway, I wasn't too disappointed by these doritos...although I don't really like spicy foods much, but since I love sausage, I didn't complain. Besides, if you don't like spicy foods, eating these chips with a few glasses of cold/cool water should do the trick.
Overall, this really isn't for my taste...but if you like spicy foods, then you would probably love this flavor, each chip contained a generous amount of spiciness.

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
