Snack loot with mini reviews and small random con loot!

MaakieMaakie13 days agoLoot
Hello MFC! I wanted to share a small Japanese snack loot I have bought recently and also added a recent con loot (that didn't really fit in it's own blog) to this post! Enjoy! :)

Snack loot

After a long time of not ordering snacks from Japan, I had a big box from Candysan on my way!

About 1/3 of the box was filled with umaibo, which I have handed out as a birthday-treat at work. Actually, now that I am writing this, I have no clue if this is a typical Dutch thing or that it is also practiced at other parts of the world. Over here, when it is your birthday, you are expected to hand out treats to your coworkers. Most common over here is that people buy cakes, but I wanted to do something special, which is why I thought 'umaibo is something special and not even expensive'! The treats got...mixed reactions. I was probably too enthusiastic and forgot about the 'scare' a lot of people have of foreign food, only about 50% of the people dared to try it. I just told them they are like big cheeto's, but a lot of them could not be convinced. Lesson learned: Next time I won't do something special like this again and just hand out cake... Wait, it is not a good start of this blog to get negative here, so let's quickly move on the the next part!

The bunch of snacks, chocolates and DIY-kits lying underneath all of the umaibo! Aw, yes!

On the left is the freebie that I got from Candysan with this purchase, it's a small tissue pack with Chopper from One Piece. I gave it away to a friend who is a One Piece fan.

On the right is the limited edition halloween umaibo! I remember the flavor was not listed, which is why I bought only one. I was hoping it would be a special flavor (like pumpkin for example), but it turned out to be the regular corn potage, but with a fancier packaging. Oh well, the flavor was nice as always!

It was cheap, so I could not help myself, even though I did not have much expectations, haha! Anyway, yeah, it was just a generic sweet gummy, shoved in a funny packaging. It's a nice gag gift, though!

I just had to buy this one when I saw the cute packaging! It's a strawberry-chocolate set with Peko and Sanrio characters. Excuse me for the messed-up-looking desk, it's my crafts table and I was eating them while working there.

Both the packaging design and the chocolates are very cute! The taste is nice, the strawberry doesn't taste too artifical. I would recommend this set for gifting, because I felt a bit bad buying such expensive chocolate for myself...and eating it by myself, haha!

These cookies! Just wow, where do I start! I loved them! The base of the cookies is cheddar-like cheese flavor, they taste a bit like local Tuc cookies. I think those cookies don't exist outside of a few European countries, but the taste is quite similar to cheddar cheese goldfish crackers in the USA. Anyhow, these cookies have that cheesy flavoring as a base and then have cream cheese filling inbetween two stacked cheddar cheese cookies.

If you're a cheese- and savory-snacks fan like me, this is a must-try! I will definitely sneak a pack of these in with upcoming snack orders!

Matchy Pocky. We love matcha flavor and we love Pocky, so we wanted to try this! The coating on the sticks is very similar to the taste of matcha Kit Kat. I recommend this one if you like matcha!

'Reverse' pocky, the chocolate is on the inside and the cookie on the outside! If you like Pocky, but think "Hrmm, this could use more chocolate", well these are the cookies for you!

Heard a lot about them, but never tried Angel Pie myself! They are cookies with a thin layer of chocolate and a marshmallow filling. I liked them, but the marshmallow flavor was the strongest taste (for example, my husband who is more of a 'cookies and chocolate'-person, did not like them much). The cookie is also a soft cookie, which I did not expect. Even though the taste was nice, I don't think I will buy them again (I prefer hard cookies myself). I only recommend them to fans of marshmallow and/or soft cookies.

Calbee Jagarico 'Salada' flavor. Potato chips with hints of crispy carrot and herbs. It may sound a bit weird, but it was very nice! I'm a big Jagarico fan in general and had not tried this flavor before!

I know Chocoball from it's crazy commercials, but also did not try it before! I expected the taste to be a bit like caramel Maltesers, but they were a lot smaller. These were also very chewy and the caramel-flavor overruled the chocolate. Not bad, but I wouldn't buy them again.

This one I was very excited for to try out! Over here Koala's March cookies are pretty common if you go to Asian supermarkets and speciality stores, but the flavors we always have are chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. So when I saw the Japan-exclusive flavor called 'Chocolate Milk', I wanted to try it out! They are very crunchy chocolate cookies with a whipped cream-like taste in the middle. They were an extremely good snack, but I wasn't wow-ed by them, as we have local cookies that taste very similar. Still, they were very nice and both the cookies and the packaging are so cute!

YaYcon loot

Below picture is my loot of YaYcon! YaYcon is a convention about pop culture with LGBT undertones, so yes, that means there is a lot of yaoi and yuri to buy!

Even though I'm staff, I also can't help myself but to always buy some loot in our vendor area! I mainly buy things from the artists and it doesn't help that I am friends with a lot of them, so I have to withhold myself to buy everything they newly released.

When I saw these derpy Charmander and Bulbasaur stickers, I just had to get them! Unfortunately I can't remember the artist anymore.

They got a nice place on my 'refridgerator of artist alley stickers'. Give it a few more years and I won't have any space left.

Probably my favorite surprise from the con was the fact that my friend Purochen purochen.etsy.c... had made a Mail Moogle strap! Moogles are the cutest thing in Final Fantasy and Delivery Moogles are even better! Although my favorite Mail Moogle is the one from the first Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, if someone would make some merchandise of that one, I could die in peace.

The yuri doujinshi is from a group properly named Yuri Rescue Squad www.facebook.co... . The story is quite short, but very cute and sweet. I really like the artwork.

The other comic book was a Dutch published one, where translated the title would mean 'Mijntje (female name) comes out of the closet'. I'm not sure if the book is autobiographical, but it's about the struggle of a woman coming out as a lesbian. Everything is told in one-page-punchlines.

Below comic book was not purchased at YaYcon, but at a small convention shortly after it. I'm still adding it here, because the artist especially published this short book as a release for YaYcon!

It's a yaoi doujinshi of an cervitaur and a mermaid, packaged in a very properly fitting bag (I like touches like that)! The book is made by my friend Colourbee www.etsy.com/sh... . I bought the 18+ version, which has a few bonus pages compared to the all-ages version.

If you are interested in buying the book, I would probably recommend getting the all ages version, which is a bit cheaper than this version. In my opinon, because of the porn being loose sketches, it doesn't really add to the story. Especially with the story itself being overly sweet and cute.

Are sticking your stickers directly onto your refrigerator? I highly recommend making them into magnets! Ever since I saw another MFC blog post where someone salvaged laptop stickers by making them into magnets, I've been doing it with every sticker I care about. The major benefit is that if your refrigerator breaks down and you have to replace it (or even if you upgrade), you can take the stickers/magnets off and put them on the new one! You can get sheets of magnets off Amazon. The best part is that there is a sticky side to the magnet sheets, so you can easily turn non-stickers into magnets as well. I've used it for buttons, con badges, and all sorts of flat things that don't have a place in my home but I don't want to get rid of.
I realize my advice was unsolicited, so if it's unwelcome, feel free to disregard! :D


Thanks! :D

And yeah, I've seen that blog too! But actually I did not plan to make them magnets. Everything on that fridge is either cheap/freebie stickers or are from artists I want to support and don't mind re-buying if needed. So if that fridge dies, I will see my new fridge as a blank slate for a new sticker collection. :) I also have a huge magnet collection on my other fridge door btw. xD

calias (13 days ago) #28351246I've been itching for more salty snacks recently, so I'll be on the lookout for them!
Heh, my previous icon was actually from Osomatsu-san! This is a character from My Hero Academia; his name is Mirio Togata. It's just that many have noticed his similarities to Tintin, so someone colored him like that as a joke.


I'm sure you will not be disappointed with Jagarico! :D

A-ha! That explains it. Googled him, he's like a buff Tintin, haha!

Maakie (13 days ago) #28349630Thank you! :D And wow, a Japanese supermarket closeby! If you like savory stuff, I definitely recommend you to try out Jagarico sticks if you didn't do so yet! :)
Which character is your icon from btw? Style reminds me of Dutch/Belgian/French comics, but reverse image search brings me to Osomatsu-san (?).

calias (13 days ago) #28348402I love your snack reviews! I always want to pick out at least one or two snacks when I go to the Japanese supermarket over here, but I always second guess myself. Your reviews give me something to look forward to picking out next time!

victorviper (13 days ago) #28338077It's pretty disappointing that your coworkers turned their noses up at the umaibo. I mean, it's a prepackaged snack food from a first-world country, how bad could it possibly be?

Yeah, it was disappointing for me too, some of them literally said 'isn't that the country with so much nuclear stuff?'. :I People knew about me liking Asian/Japanese culture in general there, so I thought they would have liked seeing something of it. And umaibo is a lot like some of the savory snacks we have here, so I thought it was a safe choice.

Anyway, I will start my new job at another company soon, and even though that company is more international, I don't think I will import any special snacks anymore. I'll just buy a generic cake at the supermarket next time. But the good news was that I had a ton of umaibo for myself and the people that ended up liking it, could grab a second one!

victorviper (13 days ago) #28338077It was interesting to see that you got a couple boxes of green tea Pocky. A while back, I decided to try that flavor and you could get a pack of 12 boxes pretty cheap on Amazon. The first couple boxes were tasty enough, but after 12 boxes, that was enough green tea Pocky for a lifetime :).

Oh man, 12 boxes, 2 packs each box...that's a ton of matcha Pocky, haha! I also once made the 'mistake' of buying a huge size bag of matcha Kit Kat and was not interested in buying anything green tea flavored for at least a year. :') It's a nice taste, but not something everyday for me.
