Have you tried mammoth meat? These colorful packs are tempting you to give it a go. The one on the right has an onion flavor to it. What does mammoth meat taste like?
Mameshiba (bean dog) is getting in on the act for Setsubun, where people throw out beans wishing in good luck and chasing out the devils. Since Mameshiba is a bean dog, this is their chance to get in the public eye.
Was really surprised by the size of this caramel almond scone. It was twice the size of the strawberry bread.
Sweets Torte. Lots of flavors in this treat out at the moment. This one looked good on the packet, but the size of the cookie looks small. I want the full cake. ^^
Strawberry bread for those who are keen. I decided to pass on this one, but it looked interesting.
Lots of home brands on display here. The products never look that interesting. Good packaging makes such a difference when buying things. The home brands seem to be taking up more shelf space recently though. Maybe in the future, convenience stores will stock mainly their own goods?
Rilakkuma enjoying some Mameshiba beans, getting ready for Setsubun. Probably hoping he is going to be welcomed in with the good luck and not thrown out with the devils.
I really like chiffon cake. This variety doesn't look like the best I have ever tried, but the quality looks better than you might normally expect from a convenience store cake.
Not sure if this is new, but I haven't seen it before. It literally stopped me in my tracks. I thought it was a new foreign brand, then realized it said Hi Milk, not himilk. ^^
Crunky with kuri (chestnuts). Might have to give this a go some time.
More Crunky. some dark chocolate this time.
There were so many chocolate treats here, I had to snap a photo of the whole shelf. We have covered many of these before. Which ones can you recognize?
Lots of good premium onigiri out in the convenience stores. Do you prefer the regular type or the premium ones?
Totoro poses with some Ginger Syrup throat sweets. I couldn't resist buying these and trying them out straight away. They were great.
Are convenience stores in your part of the world always changing their items, or do they pretty much stock the same things all year round. One of the reasons I like going to the convenience stores so much is they always have the latest products out. It is a great place to revitalize yourself looking at new items.
