Yakult is well known for its Yakult milk drink which can be found in supermarkets overseas as well as Japan. Yakult has a number of subsidiaries that make other products such as these cereal bars made from Yakult Health Foods.
One thing which you often find in the convenience store is a corner stocked with bites to go down with beer or Japanese sake. Otsumami (おつまみ) usually give me the image of old men sitting around sipping sake and eating dried squid or beef jerky. Lets have a look at some of the offerings here.
Ok, if you are not into Japanese sake, then you will need something to wash down all that beef jerky and dried squid. How about a bottle of Cassis Fanta from New Zealand to get things going.
If cookies are more your thing, then Fujiya has 2 new types of chocolate chip you can try.
Lots of variety this week from my friendly Family Mart store. What’s your favorite type of product? Are you more into the chocolates or is your thing otsumami? Do you like to find a cold drink or are you looking for some hot ginger tea?
