Welch’s Sparkling Rose Soda. This fruity fizzy soda is grape juice with a hint of strawberry which gives it an extra fruity twist as well as a pretty pink colour.
KitKat Strawberry Milk. Another of the wonderful Japanese KitKat varieties, these contain strawberry milk cream filling covered with strawberry white chocolate. As an extra bonus, KitKat packaging is not recyclable paper, and can be folded into origami shapes using the instructions printed on the reverse of the bag.
Pocky Heartful Cherry. Perfect for your Valentine, these chocolate-dipped biscuit sticks have been made heart-shaped instead of the usual round, the are dipped in creamy cherry–flavoured chocolate coating.
Strawberry Ice Cream Marshmallow. A squishy jelly-filled strawberry marshmallow inside a mini cone, very cute and looks just like an ice cream!
Uncle Pierre’s Strawberry Roll Cake. Continuing the pink and strawberry theme, this is a bit like a mini roll cake, except it’s a vanilla cake filled with lovely strawberry creme. Perfect for when you just want a little bit of cake.
Calbee Luxury Chocolate Potato Chips. I know that the idea of crisps and chocolate sounds bizarre, but they really are delicious! I’ve actually had these before, and I was surprised at how good the combination of salty crunch and not-too-sweet chocolate tastes.
Sakusaku Panda Strawberry Cookies. Pandas are a popular theme in lots of Japanese candies. These little cookies have a strawberry chocolate coating, and each one has a different expression on the panda face. Very cute and yummy!
Bubbly Taiyaki Strawberry Flavour. These fun snacks come in a variety of flavours. They’re made to look like the fish-shaped street food pastry, but are made from wafer filled with light and bubbly strawberry chocolate. Very crisp and light.
Curry Turtle Crackers. The turtle part comes from the shape, which is like a turtle shell. They are crunchy corn snacks with the classic Japanese curry flavour, for a savory crunch.
Noshiume Plum Candy. This is a popular candy, a flat chewy strip made from sour plums. Strawberry Daifuku. This is an adorable chewy marshmallow with a gooey strawberry filling. Japanese Squid Cracker. The name comes from the shape, a squid, and it’s crunchy and savory.
Yakisoba Snack. As well as cooked soft, crunchy noodle snacks are very popular in Japan.
Umaibo Cinnamon Apple Pie. Umaibo, which means ‘delicious stick’ is one of the most popular snacks in Japan, especially with children. These crunchy puffed corn sticks come in a multitude of flavours, and this version is a special limited edition.
Yamato Shrimp Crackers. These little crispy sticks are so called because of the shape, like little shrimp. The flavour is lovely an salty.
Cocoa Bolo. These are tiny chocolate crispy bites, that can be eaten as they are or with milk, rather like chocolate cereal!
Full Moon Pon Cracker. These are shaped like the round moon, and have a delicious sweet and spicy soy sauce flavour. Plus the packaging is really cute too!
