I went out to Chiba at the end of last week to play golf and snapped a few interesting items in the local Chiba convenience stores. Many items are the same as central Tokyo, but a few caught my eye that I hand’t seen before.
Found these Chiba-kun keyrings when I was out at a convenience store in Chiba before playing golf. hi Chiba-kun!
Banana Crunky Icecream. Excellent.
Anyone up for a Nandog ?
Corn chocolate? Has anyone tried these?
Edamame chips, always good for snacks.
Some interesting looking fuwafuwa cakes.
Kinoko no yama have been a popular candy treat for a long time. Here is a new flavor for them with kinako. That is kinako flavored kinokos. Try saying that quickly a few times.
The original Kinoko no yama.
There are a few dried fruit products appearing on the shelves recently. Spring must mean fruits I suppose, which is why they are taking the place of the throat sweets we dont need now winter is almost gone.
The major convenience stores generally have their own brand of crackers, chips and sweets as well. Here is a selection by 7 Eleven.
An donuts also in the 7 Eleven brand.
Rilakkuma has his own mini snack box at this Lawson store.
These new pocky are particularly tasty. Kiiroitori was looking after these for me.

I was surprised to see a Subway inside this Family Mart store. Maybe they are going to team up with more mixed food/brand ideas. Near my house there is a Tullys inside a Family Mart store as well.
Weider Jelly has quite a few good themes for their well being jelly. This one is Beauty !
This wasnt at the convenience store, but was actually the cake I bought for my birthday. Very tasty. I bought the Kaorina cake with custard cream. The sakura cake looked good to as did the fruits cake.
Hersheys is having a go at the convenience store market and has come out with these bite size packs. Lets see how long they remain on the shelves.
Hope you had a good Conbini Monday wherever you are.
