Pokémon Noodle – Soy Sauce Corn Flavor
The soup is a mild chicken-based broth, light but tasty, and is paired with some slightly crisp-fried noodles that will be ready in just 3 minutes. This cup of noodles is just as enjoyable for the young as it is for us adults! There are also collectable stickers with each cup to make it even more fun :)
Nohara Hiroshi Addictive Bean Sprout Salt Noodles
The second cup of ramen is a brand new line featuring manga artist Yoichi Tsukahara which is available only in Japan. This peculiar bean sprouts soba with salt comes with round-edged noodles that are slightly softer than the Pikachu ramen listed above. They go perfectly well with the soup, a chicken broth with pepper and sesame oil.
Sea Urchin (Uni) Potato Chips
Moving onto the snacks, this pack of Sea Urchin crisps are only for the most ambitious of taste testers! A unique and unusual flavour.
Green Beans – Eel Kabayaki Flavor
This pea snack comes with the savory flavor of charcoal-grilled eel flavor, Japanese pepper and an irresistible taste. Again, this is an unusual Japanese flavour!
Hi-Chew Premium – White Peach
For something sweet, these White Peach flavored chewy candies are a pleasant change to the tastebuds after the above products. A really good mood booster for your lunch break.
O Zack Juicy Gyoza Chips
This is not your classic bag of chips. Crispy, crunchy, and covered in a delicious gravy that explodes in your mouth as you take your first bite. The chips were finished by a special frying method which left little bubbles in the chips, giving them a tougher texture than your regular chips. They are flavored with meat dumplings (餃子, Gyoza) juice, and boy, they are good!
Orion Omoshiro Sports Ramune (Olympics)
Ramune candies that are popular with both kids and adults in Japan, these nostalgic sweets are inspired to mimic the taste of the refreshing ramune sports drinks to celebrate the recent Olympics.
Transformation Gyogyogyo Gum
This brightly coloured pack is bubble gum with a mix of fruity flavours. You’ll find 4 sticks of coloured gum in the pack, and each can be split up into smaller pieces. You can mix the tastes to create new, unique flavours: Apple + grape = cherry. Peach + apple + grape = plum – try it!
