Kado Tamanegi Santaro onion corn puffs: I purchased these Japanese onion-flavored corn puffs from the Japanese market Midoriya next to Union Square in Manhattan. I was attracted to its cute packaging, which seemingly depicts father-son bonding, but on closer inspection, it appears the father is digging the son up with a shovel. This possible potrayal of vegetarian cannibalism is somewhat disturbing, but I'm more confused by the literal translation of the English label of "tamanegi santoro," which translates to mushroom onions (according to Google Translate). I'm not sure I tasted any mushroom flavor, but it does taste of a combination of sweet and savory Funyun's onion powder with a soy aftertaste reminiscent of takoyaki sauce. A little salty, but still tasty. 3.5/5.0
