Riska Mentai Corn Snack: I love that Japanese culture is seemingly contradictory. There is the upmost respect for serenity and simplicity, along with an obsession with quality and workmanship (e.g., tea gardens, sashimi and sushi rice, Yurbai melons) - yet, at the same time, it can be loud, brash, and colorful (e.g., manga, Pachinko). This purple bag of Mentai (cod roe) puffed corn snacks is sensory overload all on its own, with multiple exclamation points, bold lettering, and metallic silver foil highlighting. I...

Yoshimi Yakitokibi: Several months ago, I wrote a review of Trader Joe's mochi rice nuggets, a fried savory glutinous rice snack unlike any other mochi I had eaten up to that point. Irregularly shaped, almost like golden nuggets, they were crunchy and dense - the polar opposite of the chewy texture I associate with mochi. Recently, I was gifted a bag of corn-flavored fried mochi crackers, brought back all the way from Japan, where this particular flavor can only be purchased in Hokkaido. The texture and shap...

Organics Organic Kettle Corn Popcorn: Decent take on kettle corn, but nothing to write home about. More sweet than salty. Lots of shells that are bound to meet your dentist's disapproval. 2.5/5.0

Cheeseboard Corn Cherry Scone: Wholly satisfying combination of textures, with a slightly crusty baked exterior, soft but grainy textured interior (from the cornmeal), and plump and tart cherry halves scattered throughout, Areas of sugar coating seem extraneous, as it is just sweet enough without. A nice sweet baked good that's substantial but not heavy. 3.5/5.0

365 kettle corn: While the bag says sweet and salty, this popcorn is much more sweet than salty. It reminds me of a milder Cracker Jack with no peanuts and no prize. 2.5/5.0

Tiny but Mighty kettle popcorn: This snack features a special line of heirloom kernels whose hulls disintegrate when popped. This means that there are virtually no shells to pick from your teeth after eating, (useful science!). While the kernels are small, they have the perfect balance of salty and sweet. An especially addictive snack that quickly disappears despite a 10-serving bag. The marketing claims that this product will change the way you think about popcorn forever-a tall order, but it lives up to its promise! Purc... (read more) 4.5/5.0
