Turns out most if not all the product here is real. Did the Author have each company permission or what? O_O

Cheap sweets compilation because I love snacks.

 

Chapter 02 - Umaibō うまい棒

Puffed corn flavored with (I'm sure it is a) artificial flavor. I have similar product in my country but it has only 2 flavor (cheese and choco). When i was a child, this kind of cheap snack is so cheap my mother will immediately classified it as forbidden snack (well, maybe once in 2-3 weeks).

Chapter 03 - Potato Fry ポテトフライ

I bet it's like rice cracker. It is a discontinued product. Hotaru must be sad.

Chapter 04 - Bou kinako Ataru 棒きなこ当

Kinako is a dry roasted soybean powder used to season plain mochi. This is like a mini version of mochi (but it's just a solid soy flour & sugar).

So smol.

Chapter 05 - Namaiki Beer 生いきビール

I don't think it's wise to give children 'adult'-like drink but whatever Japan. It's using baking soda and has lots of sweeteners.

Chapter 06 - Morocco Fruit Yogul モロッコヨーグル

"Morrocco Yogul is yogurt-flavored paste in a small cup. The Italian people think it tastes like Ricotta cheese so it may go well with bread."

I'm really curious with its taste.

Chapter 07 - Coffee Milk Candy コーヒー 牛乳 キャンディ

Just ordinary coffee milk candy. I read somewhere (dunno a review or real advertisement) that the product is to give the children taste of adultness (coffee). If that was a real ad I will questioning why they need children to taste grown-ups things...

Thank you! That's cool! I always curious what ramune taste like. In Indonesia most supermarket with foreign products only sells Japan import like Glico or Kit Kat, seaweed and ramen. Cheap sweets is rare.

 

Chapter 08 - Young Donuts ヤングドーナツ

Well it's a... mini donuts with sugar coated. I would enjoy this one!

Chapter 09 - Butamen ブタメン

Is a smol cup ramen. Never see one so I don't know how small (looks normal?). It needs 180 cc of hot water, and 150 cc is the size of Nescafe small red glass so I think it's quite small for cup noodles.

Chapter 10 - Kurukuru Bou Jelly くるくるぼーゼリー

It's a jelly in stick. Definitely not something my mother will allowed in the past. Similar products exist under some brands and I never taste any. Someone review the product and said it quite bland (for US standard).

It also quite long, around 32cm

Chapter 11: Fue Ramune フエラムネ

A lemon soda tasting candy that takes quick a while to melt in your mouth. Meanwhile, you can whistle as long as you want to (until your parents get annoyed, like mine did when I was younger). Comes with a small plastic toy that inevitably gets lost in the next five minutes.

You can only really whistle one sound, so it gets boring quickly. It's fun to share with friends though.
