Freedom Japanese Market Review - April 2017
The April 2017 Freedom Japanese Market included the following items:

~Nagewa: These are beef consomme flavored ring-shaped potato crisps.  I found them to taste better than I expected. A little salty, but not bad.

~Tohato Caramel Corn: Cheesecake flavored caramel corn!  Who even knew such a thing existed?  And why isn’t this a big thing in the States?  I loved it!

~Kabuki Cracker: Kabuki crackers are traditional rice crackers.  They are almost like a thinner coated version of a rice cake?

~Mix Fruit Mochi: These are apple and pineapple flavored mochi pieces. Mochi is a pounded sticky rice, and my 9-year-old loves it.  He thought these were amazing.

~Premium Umaibo: This is mozzarella, and camembert cheese flavored puffed corn.  Camembert is a soft, creamy, surface-ripened cow’s milk cheese.  It’s a giant crunchy cheese puff.  Yum!

~Umaka!: Hmm.  These are ramen chips flavored like a Nagasaki noodle dish (seafood and veggie flavor). I can’t get into the seafood flavor, so these were a miss for me.

~Teriyaki Umaibo: This is a teriyaki burger flavored tube if puffed corn.  It sounds a little odd, and it is but in a good way.

~Pizza Umaibo: I have tried this pizza-flavored tube of puffed corn in the past.  It’s a little spicy (to me anyway), but fun to try!

~Caplico Mini:  This mini ice-cream cone has a chocolate coating on the inside and a strawberry “scoop” on top.  Tasty!

~UFO Ramune: These are Ramune flavored hard candies.  Ramune is a carbonated soft drink (it comes in assorted flavors), and my kids thought these were so fun!

~Un-Choco: Un-Choco are mini grape flavored chocolate balls.  I wouldn’t say they were good, but they also weren’t bad.  I probably wouldn’t have them again though.

~Shimi Choco Corn: These are star-shaped corn puffs coated in strawberry chocolate.  They almost remind me of those Gerber puffs I used to give my children – minus the chocolate coating ;).

~Ume Paper and Chewing Straw Candy:  Oops!  No pictures of these!  That’s the problem with snack boxes – once you realize you missed a picture, the snacks are gone ;).  The Ume Paper was pickled plum flavor (both sweet and sour), and we weren’t fans.  The Chewing Straw Candy was a hit though.  It’s a straw shaped favored grape gummy candy.  So good!

~Origami: The box also included a katana-shaped origami to get into the spirit of Children’s Day.
