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.

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.
