Here’s what’s inside ZenPop‘s latest Sweets Pack which is themed Milk & Cookies.
Extra Rich Milk Sweet Rice Crackers
This Winter-only Japanese treat is from the long-selling Yuki no Yado range. The pack contains 6 individually wrapped bags with 2 rice crackers in each. The crispy senbei is coated in rich milk made with 100% fresh cream from Hokkaido. They are very moreish and have a sweet and salty flavour.
Alfort Rich Milk Chocolate
These bite-sized chocolate-coated cookies are one of Japan’s most iconic and beloved treats. Perfect as an after-dinner sweet treat, they also go well with a cup of coffee.
Giant Caplico Milk
Shaped like an ice cream cone, this interesting giant crunchy wafer cone is filled with a fluffy milk flavoured white chocolate and there’s a bubbly chocolate centre that’s similar to Aero. Very sweet and delicious!
KabukiAge Mentai Mayo
Best known in the Kanto and Kansai regions, these crispy fried rice crackers are coated in a special mentaiko and rich mayonnaise flavour. Great as a bar snack as they are very salty so you’ll definitely need a cold drink with them.
Noir Crunch Black Cocoa White
Made using Tokuna Milk, these bite-sized crunchy black cocoa cookies are mixed with smooth white chocolate and are only released during Winter in Japan. These were a new favourite from the ZenPop box!
I’m sure all Japanese fans will recognise this hugely popular Milky Candy which has been made in Japan since 1951. Using a combination of milk from Hokkaido and water from Mount Fuji, this candy is described as the ‘true taste’ of Japan.
Shimichocko Milk Choco
This pack contains crispy corn puffs which have been soaked in milk chocolate – they are very addictive! Contains calcium, dietary fibre and corn which is not genetically modified.
Described as a nostalgic rice cracker with the comforting flavour of milk, you can top them with honey, or enjoy with your favourite ice cream that’s perfect for oyatsu taimu (snack time) in Japan.
Hachimistu Shoyu Bonchi
Soft but still crunchy, this sweet senbei rice cracker is flavoured with acacia honey and carefully selected shoyu soy sauce for that classic combination of sweet and salty flavours.
Orion Mini Sour
Released in 1979, this popular dagashi is made in Osaka and contains mini sour chews in a cute soda style can packaging. Pull the tab to enjoy the nostalgia!
Doraemon is an iconic and long-running Japanese manga series and this fun soda-flavoured bubblegum will help you fall in love with its main character of the same name.
Shrimp & Mayo Umaibo
A Japanese twist on the classic English prawn cocktail but in a crunchy corn snack! Strange but it kind of works?!
Mogi Mogi Fruit Gummies
Meiji’s soft Mogi Mogi Gummies comes in three different fruit flavours of grape, muscat and melon soda in a cute design.
A fun whistling soda-flavoured ramune candy. These look like thick Polo sweets and kids are encouraged to copy the birds on the packaging and ‘whistle’!
The last sweet snack is sticks of strawberry flavoured chocolate studded with almonds and sandwiched between two crunchy wafters. They go perfectly with a hot chocolate or dipped into milk – yum!
