Now it’s your turn to experience Japan right from home.
It sounds really to be spoiled of me to complain about my South California life. Actually, I want to clarify, I love my current life very very much and I love my husband, as well as my cat. But do you have the same feeling of missing the place where you grew up? Now I guess you can understand me better. Especially the food! I definite have a super Asian stomach – I need to eat rice, drink boba, and of course always craving for Asian snacks.
Please don’t say you have no ideas about the difference between the Asian snacks with American snacks…Uhmmm, it is totally different. Our snacks are light, are more flavorful with the real taste, and also I will say it is healthier, since we don’t like over sweet things. Japanese snacks can give you a wonderful experience about the high-quality Asian snacks. They make the snacks with nice ingredients in great recipes. Another thing I love is their very cute packaging. You will have a happy mood when you open the snacks’ packaging and then fully taste them in a big smile.
