Glica Crispy Chicken Pretz: I've had Pretz before in the states but never any meat-flavored versions. Pretz are essentially very thin and crispy breadsticks. This pack comes with two sealed snack packs. Flavor-wise, the crispy chicken sticks tasted mostly of lemon actually, which I suppose is a common side for fried food but I expected way more chicken flavor. If I were to taste them blind, I would guess they were a salted lemon flavor. Overall, not particularly good. 2.0/5.0

Kirin Sekai Kitchen Salty Litchi Drink: A surprisingly refreshing and balanced drink that's like an Asian version of salted lemonade. The salt takes a bit of the edge off of what could otherwise be very sweet litchi juice in the same way that salted lemonade doesn't taste salty. Has a milky semi-translucent color. Worth a try! 3.5/5.0

Denroku Porippy Crispy Peanuts: I had previous reviewed the 'spicy' version of this snack and purchased a new flavor to try without knowing what the package said. It turns out that the green bag is the normal flavor consisting of roasted peanuts in a seasoned fried crispy coating. It's definitely missing the extra flavor that the spicy peanut has, which comes in a yellow and red bag. Definitely prefer the spicy flavor; while these were not bad, they are more for purist fans of roasted peanuts than I am. 3.0/5.0

Morinaga Mango Pudding Snack: This is another flavor of Morinaga pudding packs. They come in packs of three at the grocery store and are small pudding cups, about 2/3 the size of America ones. (To be fair, the 3-pack comes with smaller cups than the individually-sized pudding cups you can also buy, which are actually bigger than American ones). The mango one is extremely sweet and reminds me of mango-flavored gelatin snacks you get in those miniature squeeze packets from Chinese grocery stores (similar to the lychee g...

Morinaga Annin Tofu: Morinaga is a common Japanese brand that can be found in the supermarket for all sorts of things, probably most popularly in the US for their Japanese instant pancake mix. Recently I've been trying their pudding sets, which are overall decent and affordable. This was their version of almond jello (called annin tofu, though it doesn't contain tofu but just resembles it in its look), the type you get in asian restaurants with canned fruit or goji berries. It has a familiar concentrated almo... (read more) 3.0/5.0
