Note that everything after this line was written back in September. Next post will be a bunch of reviews clumped together. This particular flavor of Jyu-C (Gold), was a special edition that came out for the celebration of the 45th Anniversary of the company. Which makes one wonder how I was able to get it […]

I’m going to start off this post with a little bit more personal stuff. So you can skip this part if you want to. First, I want to say that I don’t have many snacks left (well, I already told you before, but I’m just repeating myself). I only have about one month’s worth of […]

I’ve been looking at a lot of food blogs lately, and I really feel like cooking. Maybe when I get out of here, I’ll make a blog with the food-food I eat. But I’d probably only do that if what I make turns out looking good. I don’t think I said this before, but I […]

Fondant reminds me of the cooking shows I used to watch when I actually had time to watch t.v. I loved watching the Food Network channel. My favorites were the Ace of Cakes and the Food Network Challenge. I also watched Dinner: Impossible, Iron Chef America and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Taste: I already like […]

On the top corner it says “なめらか” which is similar to the one from the Nameraka Pudding. Now, I actually looked it up and “なめらか” means “smoothness” or “glassiness”. That makes sense for this, not so much for the pudding. I love the design of the box and the design ON the box. Taste: To […]

Like the title? It didn’t take me that long to figure it out, inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I have six reviews for this “special section”. One more than last time. But only one away from a full week, darn. Well, it’s not like I post everyday, so…whatever I guess. Maybe I should […]

Half of the pictures in the post are weird because I used the video camera, same reason as the Apollo pictures. I think I’ve heard of the brand, Bourbon, before in other Japanese sweets reviews. This, however, is my first time trying something from that brand. I first spotted this cute snack on one of […]

Before, I was thinking, “WHY DO I HAVE SO MANY REVIEWS ALREADY SCHEDULED?!” and it was filling up my Posts page. But now I’m glad I did those. Because, now, I don’t feel like writing reviews after I come home from work. The same photo problems as the last post – half are shitty. Living […]

ガムなのに、スウィーツ。 It is gum, but it is also a sweet. […I think] I love the way they say “sweets” in the CM, it’s kind of funny. Maybe only because I’m a foreigner and I speak English. And the dude’s expression after he eats the gum is super weird. But I got a laugh out of […]

If I didn’t read Pocky Watch’s blog, I wouldn’t have found out about this ポッキー. And because I had seen their review, I chose this ポッキー over the other デザートポッキー: Double Chocolate. I’m certain that if I hadn’t seen this ポッキー online, I would’ve chosen the Double Chocolate one, because it’s a flavor that I’m more […]
