Looks like Conbini Monday is about 6 months old, as we enter Week 26. This weeks goodies come from a mixture of Family Mart, where I spent my lost 1,000 yen, 7 Eleven and JR’s Newdays.

    1) Sweet Potatoe Doughnuts Look really tempting. Would reall like to try. A lot of pre packaged desserts do seem to taste waxy, makes you feel like you have a ton of grease in your mouth. šŸ™
    2) Spinach dougnut balls, I bet POPEYE would like those šŸ™‚ Remember that cartoon? I buy the toasted coconut donut holes when I go to Walmart that’s my fave.
    3) Cheese chocolate, now that’s a new one to me, sounds tempting.
    4) Pocky, they’re always coming up with new flavors would definately give it a try.
    5)Gumbo, never had it before, don’t care for okra, to slimy.
    6) Kit Kats, now that’s what I could go for, They only sell the chocolate one here.
    7) Coffee in a bottle, have only had coffee in the can, got it at Disney World, want more.
    8)Suica, are they having a anniversery promo? How old is the company?
    Sorry for the long response, just had so many products to respond about. You mean it’s been 6 months already? Where does the time go?
