Tai Arare: I purchased this snack from Tokyo Fish Market, a Japanese grocery store in Berkeley, hoping the fish-shaped crackers would be seafood flavored, as many Asian snacks are. The Chinese character on the packaging even literally translates to "red snapper" (though I have to admit that I had to use Google Translate to determine that). Despite the name and shape, the crackers are just regular glazed rice crackers – crunchy, sweeter than you would expect, but still with a savory soy aftertaste. A... (read more) 3.0/5.0

Kameda Kotsubukko : Bite-sized pieces of chocolate, tins of mint, or take-away cookies never work on me as impulse grocery store purchases. But rice crackers with too-cute packaging positioned directly next to the checkout does the job. This pack of 4 snack-sized bags of sweet and savory soy flavored crackers have a deep savory taste and are portioned larger than most so that a bag is actually filling. But beyond the cute Japanese branding, they aren't particularly distinctive as far as rice crackers go. I ... (read more) 3.0/5.0

Silk Peach Mango Yogurt: This soy-based, dairy-free yogurt is much thinner than regular yogurt in texture, but the tropical peach and mango flavor is fairly unique. About average for yogurts, and also for non-dairy ones I've tried. 2.5/5.0

Nancy's plain soy yogurt: Oddly, the plain flavor of this product has more sugar than either the blueberry or strawberry flavors I tried, with 15g per cup. With the plain yogurt, the true flavor of the product really comes through, and it's not particularly pleasant. It tastes like a highly concentrated piece of tofu and, for some reason, had a savory aftertaste despite the sugar. I found myself adding honey to mask the strong flavor. 2.0/5.0

Nancy's strawberry soy yogurt: Similar to the blueberry flavor I previously reviewed, this yogurt may not look very appetizing (the brownish color reminds of a liver pâé), but it tastes pretty good. Because it's non-dairy, it has a unique texture more like custard than traditional yogurt. The strawberry flavor is pleasant. 3.0/5.0

Nancy's cultured soy blueberry yogurt: A non-dairy yogurt whose texture resembles a slightly grainy chawanmushi. While this may sound unappetizing (and its brown-purple hue doesn't help), it's actually pretty decent as far as soy yogurts go. The yogurt is slightly less sweet than many alternatives (13g in a serving), and the soy gives it a lighter flavor. I liked it more than I expected to. 3.0/5.0
