Copan rusk toast - Maple sugar

Posted by Linda on 31. 2011 2 comments 0 trackback
I must say, I am absolutely smitten with these delectable 'Copan' rusk toast snacks from Meiji! Ever since my previous 2 delightful experiences with the Tuna & onion and Butter salt flavors last year, I've been having this urge to try as many of these lip-smackingly yummy Copan snacks available as I can find! So I was really excited when I saw this maple sugar Copan at Tokyomart!

Hey again, sorry for not updating these past few weeks, I had a project to do for work that was due last Friday, so I didn't have the time to update.

Anyway, if you're a regular reader of my blog, then you would know by now that I absolutely LOVE 'Pocky'! It's my ultimate favorite Japanese snack brand, I could live on it! Seriously!So what flavor Pocky will I review about today? Well, the 'Chocola on Chocola' range of yummy Pocky sticks were first released last year in 2010 in Japan in 4 flavors; Praline chocolate, Caramel choc, Double choc & Milk choc.
During my last visit to Tokyomart, I bought the Caramel chocolate

After my fond experiences with Jagariko's Salad and Cheese flavors, I was quite excited when I discovered this special Roast potato & butter flavor from the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, selling at Tokyomart during my last visit to the grocery:

Morinaga traditional caramels - Azuki (red bean)

Posted by Linda on 09. 2011 2 comments 0 trackback
These traditional caramels from Morinaga have a VERY long history, they are one of the most recognized and oldest Japanese confectioneries ever produced, its history dates back to 1897 when these traditional caramels were first produced in Japan during the Meiji Restoration! That makes these Morinaga traditional caramels 114 years old! With the Milk caramel being its debut flavor, it wasn't long before these traditional caramels found its way in every shopping basket across Japan. For many generations, Morinaga's famous traditional caramels have been a very popular family treat, in recent years, you'll find an array of different caramel flavors.

After my delightful first experience with the Milk caramel flavor, I was eager to dig into a new flavor, so for my second try of these famous caramels, I picked the azuki (red bean) caramel with much excitement.

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.
