First thing, this isn’t a Japanese product, though I did find it at Nijiya – which is a Japanese market. It’s from Taiwan, or at least it was manufactured there, distributed in CA though. Second, during the haul, I didn’t understand why they called it Ketchup French Fries. If, however, I had actually turned the […]

I think they used 25% of chocolate chips…or maybe they’re saying that out of the whole cookie, 25% of it is chocolate chips. It says “チョコチップ 25%使用”. The katakana part just says “choko chippu” and the kanji part says “shiyou” which is translated to “use; application”. But yeah… Well there’s a short little Japanese lesson […]

I feel bad. Because this post is late, and because I’m cutting down on reviews. SO, as a “treat”, I guess, from now on, at the end of the post. I’ll let you guys know what I’ll review next. I’m guessing this is a spring product directed towards the Japanese students who are in the […]

I actually finished this bag & review a while back. But stupid school got in the way. Anyways, an announcement. After the next two reviews (not including this one), I’m not going to review regularly anymore. Money’s a little tight right now so yeah. I still will make trips to Japantown (when I can) & […]

The book in the background is Happy Cafe. It’s super cute and super funny. I love it!!! :D Lately, I haven’t been getting a lot of stuff from Ichiban’kan, most of the treats are from Nijiya. The last time I reviewed something from Ichiban’kan was in January, 3 months ago. I guess, to be honest, […]

I hate when I don’t have enough to type to include all the pictures, because they’d all be clumped together. Anyways, three pictures on my new Flickr account (created for future purposes of this happening). There’s this super cute giraffe, who says “食べだしたらキリンがない”. Apparently, it’s a pun. The first part “食べだしたら” says “If you start […]

I saw this the last time I went to Japantown, but I didn’t get it. Because I didn’t want to crush it before getting home, so yeah.  I was attracted to this chip the first time because of a chip bag I saw online. It looked delicious, and this, is not the same, but looks […]

I recently found this song, it was the background music for this person I subscribe to on youtube. I spent like half an hour trying to figure out what the song was, because she didn’t credit it, and the newest comments didn’t say. I finally found it (though I have no idea how any more). […]

I am really looking forward to this. For several reasons. One reason, being that it isn’t manufactured by Kabaya (who has become a little bit of a let down in this department). And the other reason, because all I’ve been having for a while (in terms of reviewing) is candy and cookies. Time to bring […]

I’ve been dancing around with this product (not literally of course) for months. At the very least, for 5 months. I mean, there wasn’t anything wrong with it, I just…didn’t feel like getting it. Though, I still hung on to the idea of getting it eventually. There were two different types of boxes on the […]
