Do you know that Japan has variety of Dagashi(駄菓子 : Cheap Snack)

I think there are a lot of people likes or even loves Japanese food.
For example, Sushi and Ramen are famous all over the world.

But actually, Japan is also famous for its snack cultures.

Japanese snack culture has already started at Edo era called 一文菓子.
After WW2, very cheap snack became so famous.
They were called Dagashi(駄菓子).
And these Dagashis are still selling at Convenience store in Japan.
They are generally super cheap like JPY10 ~ JPY20.
And somehow tastes nice.

Let's check out Best 5 Japanese Dagashis.

Kabayaki San Taro / 蒲焼さん 太郎

This snack is made by the same company that makes "Kabayaki San Taro".
Quite similar ingredients with "Kabayaki San Taro", but tastes like Japanese Yakiniku(焼肉 : Grilled Meat).

Yocchan Ika / よっちゃんイカ

Ika means squid.
As the name shows, Yocchan Ika is vinegared squid taste snack.

But actually ingredients are not only squid but also fish too.
Taste is simply vinegar, but I like it so much.

Umai bou / うまい棒

Umai Bou is too famous for Japanese.
I believe that more than 80% of Japanese have tried this at least once.(No evidence though lol)

unlike what I introduced already, this Umai Bou is made with flour.
And they have variety of tastes. Including seasonal ones.

It's super easy to get this, just go to ANY convenience store!
Just JPY10, give it a try !

Big Katsu / ビッグ カツ

This product is simply like a magic to me.

Ingredients are perfectly fish, but, fry it and make it taste like Tonkatsu(Japanese fried pork).
When I was high school student, I was so poor but still wanted to eat Tonkatsu, so I ate it everyday.

It's my top recommendation, I think you should try it to test out Jpanaese mysterious technology!
