Family Mart has a campaign on showing candy from all around Japan, from Hokkaido to Okinawa.
After being back in Australia for 10 days, it was nice to arrive home last night in Tokyo and go straight to the conbini to pick up a couple of onigiri and a bottle of Pocari Sweat. Here are some snacks that had popped up in my local convenience store today which caught my eye.
These cheesecake tasting panda snacks are made from Hokkaido cheese.
Kabaya had a huge hit with their caramel melts. This version is made from Okayama's peaches.
Havent seen this color on almond chocolates before. Meiji breaking some new ground for marketing?
Chiba potato chips.
Cookies and cream is always popular for icecream. Lotte try it out here with their Crunky chocolate product.
This packaging for Meijis business man banana flavor yogurt really caught my eye. Need to remember, yellow packaging stands out strongly!
The very popular chipstar get a shoyu flavored makeover.
Ready for summer, this cool blue packaging wraps up some limited edition yakisoba.
Japanese marshmallows with azuki beans from Hokkaido. Looks more like mochi, but I havent tried to be sure.
The colors on the coffee and yogurt drinks always remind me crayons. The pastel colors seem to blend really well, ad there are not many bold designs.
Custard puddings have been appearing in many different flavors. This new product from Morinaga is azuki and custard pudding. Could be very tasty!
Liked the look of these cafe au lait, apple and honey, melon au lait, strawberry, milk tea and orange drinks.
Dakara has been a favorite of mine for a long time along with Pocari Sweat. Looks like Dakara has a new packaging at the moment. I hope it continues to sell well. For a while a few years ago it disappeared from my local convenience stores. Lets hope its here to stay now.
some colorful looking Hawaiian water. Is this a sign I need a trip to Hawaii? Could be.
An (azuki bean) donuts. One of my favorites, but I prefer them fresh rather than packaged. Andersen Bakery make a great an donut.
With summer almost here, the ice creams are getting stocked up. These lemon squash ice blocks look a treat.
There is always Camembert cheese ice cream if you want something a bit different.
Or a choco bari to round off your dessert menu.
Has anyone else seen some great new conbini snacks recently?
