Favorite Japanese snacks?

#1 Post by Pockets » Tue Apr 10, 2007 12:46 pm

I love Pocky sticks in chocolate or almond crush.

I heard that Ramune soda is very good.


Both are listed on this page:


I also love those crunchy wasabi peas and rice crackers too.

Wasabi peas are amazing :mrgreen:
I'd rather be a gear in a big, deterministic, physical machine than just some random swerving.

I was in an oriental market the other day and bought a container of wasabi flavored broad beans (fava beans?). The wasabi on them was much more potent than on the wasabi peas. I had to make sure not to inhale while eating them. :shock:

I love Pocky!
I don't know if it counts as Japanese but I really liked the limited edition Green Tea KitKats that were released in Asian countries a while back.
