Calbee JagaRiko is one of the best snacks I’ve ever had.
There are no other textures like this snack in many countries.
I asked my American friends and followers on Twitter.
Italian, French people also talked about the texture is unique and they loved it 🙂
You can listen the sound of texture from here:
Sometimes, you can get them at Asian super market but only normal flavors:
Salad (Green), Cheese (red), and Butter (Blue), Tarako (Pink).
They are great, but my favorite ones are seasonal and local ones!!
Especially, seasonal ones are almost never import to other countries as far as I know.
When I lived in Japan, my friend and I are stop by convenience store for JagaRiko because we wanted get and try latest one as soon as we can possible.
Mostly taste great or good, some other times ….. 😉
But that is also fan part!
For now, I loved Shiawase-ume (2016, spring) very much.
It was springy salty, sour, and little bit sweet.
I wish I could have one more time..
Is JagaRiko works for something?
Their texture is the only one as far as I know.
When you feel stuck, JagaRiko helps you to refresh!
The texture make some rhythm, it makes me feel better and that the reason why makes me refresh.
If you couldn’t refresh, at least tasty 😉
Where can I get JagaRiko?
At convince store, super market, Don Quixote or online.
Seasonal ones are best in convenience store.
You can find large version as well.
These ones are just size wise, taste is same (Besides right bottom one, slightly spicier than pink normal size one).
You can enjoy the texture longer than normal size.
Depending on the timing, you can get limited edition for convenience store, like Family mart, Lawson, or Seven Eleven only.
