Japan / Kansai continues with hot days, but beer is delicious on such days!
Speaking of snacks when drinking in Europe and America, nuts, chips, olives and cheese are standard, but snacks when drinking in a Japanese room are still unique.
A Japanese TV program was investigating what kind of snacks a foreigner likes in Japan.
I picked up 15 types of snacks, not luxury items or shops, but products sold at convenience stores.
The target is 175 foreigners staying in Japan.
We had a foreigner who was intoxicated to eat 15 kinds of snacks.
So I chose the best five.
First place, fried squid.
Second place,Kameda Crisps.
3rd, Cheese sandwiched with smoked cod.
4th place, dried plums.
5th place beef jerky.
The first place was “squid fly” that can be bought at any convenience store in Japan. How, 31 out of 175 people were ranked first.
At a convenience store in Japan, you can buy a squid fly with 6 sheets for about 100 yen.
Foreigners say that the touch of Sakufuwa is irresistible.
For the Japanese, the standard ”Kameda Crisps” was second place.
A kind of persimmon is an exquisite combination of soy sauce-flavored Japanese hail and peanuts resembling a persimmon seed!
More than before, foreigners were often purchased as souvenirs.
Kameda Seika’s persimmon seeds, which are the origins of the persimmon seeds overseas, were actually making their overseas debut as “Kameda Crisps”!
It was surprising that the 4th place dried plums were chosen by foreigners.
Originally, it has been eaten by Japanese people for a long time, so it is easy for anyone to eat sour plums, and it is a candy-like taste.
Impressions about dried plums from abroad
・ It looks like dried fruit. ・Easy to eat because there is no seed. ・ It feels like a gummy and is delicious.
It was that.
What do you think foreigners do n’t like?This was surprisingly a scallop.
The reason for not being chosen …
・ It is too hard to eat.
・ Scallops are soft and delicious with sushi, but I can’t believe how hard it is.
It was that.
In Japanese food culture, there is a method of cooking as a preserved food by draining moisture and condensing ”umami” ingredients.
Chew and eat things made in that way.
Then, the more you chew, the more delicious it will be.
In addition to scallops, this method is used in all marine products.
These are called “Himono（dried fish）” in Japan and are very commonly eaten.
In this survey, dried scallops were at the bottom, but if you come to Japan, how about eating dried scallops and ”Himono(dried fish）”?
There are still a lot of classic snacks in Japanese rooms that weren’t covered in this TV survey, so be sure to look for foods of interest to you at convenience stores in Japan!
Japanese canned food is cheap and high quality, so I think there are things that I really like!
