I have seen so many Japanese snacks and drinks are sold in Canada. But I realized that even though they are Japanese they come in more flavor options than we have in Japan. I’d like to share what flavor of Japanese snacks and drinks you can find overseas but in Japan.
Let’s start with my favorite candy, Puchao! Puchao is a chewy soft candy with gummy bits inside. I was happily shocked when I found Puchao here. I’ve never seen Puchao was sold in any foreign country, so I brought Puchao from Japan as a souvenir lol
As I remember grape, ramune soda and cola are the regular flavors of Puchao in Japan.
Tapioka Milk Tea
This does taste like an actual boba milk tea!!!!!!
PRETZ is a pretzel snack. The regular flavors in Japan are salad and tomato.
★Koikeya Potato Chips (湖池屋ポテトチップス)
They come in salt, consomme and seaweed in Japan.
Basically in Japan, I don’t see a variety of ramune in stores. But in Canada, if they carry ramune, almost all the stores it comes in fruit flavors.
Grape, Melon, Peach and Orange
We have CALPICO® Concentrate which comes in fruit flavors. However, I don’t think I’ve ever seen flavored Calpico in 500ML bottles or 1.5L bottles.
Mango, Strawberry, White Peach and Lychee
There might be part 2, if I find more interesting flavors(*^^*)
