Here’s what’s inside ZenPop‘s latest Sweets Pack which is themed on Say Cheese!
Calbee Dragon Potato Happy Butter
A tasty collaboration between Calbee and Frito-Lay, these Drago Potato Happy Butter chips are spiralled potato snacks with a savoury-sweet buttery flavour. They’re super crunchy!
Blanchul Mini Chocolate Quattro Cheese
Cheese and chocolate anyone? These bite-sized ‘langue de chat’ sandwich cookies are made with a filling of four cheese flavours with a sweet white chocolate flavour mixed in. Sounds strange, but kinda works?!
Pretz Super Crisp Pizza
Like a savoury Pocky, Pretz are slim bread sticks and this pack is coated in a tasty Crispy Pizza flavour so they are cheesy with a hint of tomato and herbs. They’re very moreish and there are 100 slim sticks in the pack.
YBC Chip Star Sweetcorn Butter
A Japanese rival to Pringles, Chip Star are stacked thin crisps just like the popular snack, but they use a special kneaded technology to get the flavour embedded into the chips. These taste just like buttered sweetcorn!
Umaibo means ‘delicious stick’ in Japanese and this trendy puff corn snack is often eaten between snacks to keep cravings at bay. A yummy cheese flavour keeps this box on theme.
Glico Bisco Strawberry Biscuits
Next up, I found a pack of Bisco Strawberry Biscuits which are mini sandwich cookies that have a strawberry-cream flavoured filling. Sweet and tasty!
Hi-Chew Grape & Fig Flavour
Hi-Chew are the Japanese equivalent of Chewits and they come in a wide range of fruity flavours. This one is Grape & Fig which is sweet but not too overpowering.
Ginza Rusk Hazel White
A snack pouch of crunchy toasted baguette-style pieces that are soaked in a white chocolate mixture and sprinkled with rich hazelnut chocolate. They’re classed as an adult snack and go well with a cup of coffee.
This long snack is called a Dodekabar Choco – a crispy corn puff that’s light and crispy with a delicious peanut and chocolate flavour.
Sour Lemon Gum
This pack of three Sour Lemon Gums contains one extra-sour lemon flavour so watch out! Luckily for me, I love anything sour!
Cola Candy Sticks
This cute pack contains some mini Cola Candy Sticks which has been popular in Japan since 1975.
Made by the confectionary giant Marukawa, this pack of Grape Gum hits the spot when you want something refreshing and fruity to chew on.
Choco Castella is a Japanese sponge cake which originated in Nagasaki. A popular traditional snack enjoyed throughout the day, this one comes coated in Chocolate for extra indulgence.
Garibori Ramen Snack
A crunchy mini ramen snack bag that you can put into boiling water for 3 minutes or eat them on their own – the choice is yours!
Rilakkuma Mini Choco Caramel
The final product in the box is a Rilakkuma Mini Choco Caramel – thanks ZenPop!
