Hello World! Aiko tries out an assortment of Japanese candy and snacks, from Pocky to toilet candy.
Something that we didn’t show in the video, were the non-sweet Japanese snacks that kids eat, like dried squid, dried fishes, and sea weed. I don’t eat are the dried squid and fish ones, but I do love seaweed. Aiko and Shin eat everything.
We’ve never tried these services, but if you’re looking for some Japanese snacks, here’s two that I’ve heard of:
Frequently Asked Questions
I feel like Japanese candy produces a lot of waste. Especially the toilet one.
When I first came to Japan I noticed that there was a lot more packaging than North American goods (although thankfully they don’t clamshell anything!) Some of it does feel wasteful. I don’t know how much this helps, but the plastic is usually a lot thinner gauge than what you’d find in North America. Also, all the plastic and paper is part of the recycling program in the part of Tokyo that I live in. So we generally send all the packaging to the recyclers (although I know it’s better to not have packaging at all in the first place).
So much sugar!! But probably not as sweet as American Candy.
Yeah, I tend to find the candy and other products (like pop) aren’t as sugary as American candy.
