Day Off = TV, Anime, Games and SNACKS!! (Dagashi Kashi sample set 1 tasting)

My days off are used to catch up on TV, play games and control the TV completely. But today was special, as I got to try out some of my Dagashi Kashi loot from JList. It arrived last week but I’d only been able to try two things since then; an Umaibo which turned out to be Natto flavour, which I enjoyed😄 (Now I want to try real Natto, dangerous right?) and the Cherry Kozakura Mochi, which I had Thursday while watching Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi. It was very cute.

So I picked 2 things. The mochi bar and the Potato Fry. Not even sure the mochi bar is meant to be in there, as I don’t remember it from Dagashi Kashi, but I know it from somewhere so I could be wrong, but it was yummy none the less🙂

I almost made the idiotic mistake of trying to peel the rice paper off the bar after I opened it, but I remembered, mochi=super sticky, so rice paper would make sense lol.

Doesn't look great, but tasted yummy. Not too sweet, not too chewy.

Now the Potato Fry, in it’s adorable packet.

Why aren't western snacks packaged so cutely? Do we not like cute things?

I opened it, expecting crisp-like things. Didn’t smell of much, didn’t know what flavour it was till I googled, but that was after I’d taken a bite. And daaaaaamn was that salty.

Perfectly round potato thing.

After I’d gotten over the initial saltiness the chicken flavour began to set it. It was moreish. Reminded me of Roast Chicken flavour crisps in the UK. It’s cute in it’s snack-size packaging though. It would make sense to package stuff in this size to stop people overeating I spose. But I like it’s cute regardless of reason.

I’m not gonna binge eat the whole bag cos that would be a waste. I want to savour what I’ve got :3 so I’ll save the rest for later. I’ve got konpeito and pretzel sticks to snack on anyways. And the 2nd Dagashi Kashi set on the way too😄 And a sample subscription box from FreedomJapaneseSupermarket (I shouldn’t be allowed money XD)

This isn’t even counting all the preorders I’ve still got on the go… No Game No Life is on it’s way, as is the Kotobukiya Shiro figure, and the Pikachu 20th anniversary plush… and probably other things I’ve forgotten about. My work thinks they pay me too much😄 it’s actually because I don’t go out drinking/socialising very often. Mostly it’s cinema or eating out. Otherwise I stay at home, where I can’t spend money apart from online😄

Couldn’t resist her rainbow hair, so much so I have the Phat one preordered from last year too, releases in April, meant to been January but it was pushed back T-T Image is from Hobbysearch, linked in image.

I’m somewhat skeptical that the Phat one will look as good as the photo’s…. but going by their recent work I have hope🙂

This is the aforementioned Pikachu. Ball of pudge that it is.

Look at that pudgy retro thing.

Meant to be looking like this > For the 20th Anniversary last Saturday on the 27th🙂 Makes me feel ooollld.

Meant to XD

Meant to😄

And then this is preordered too. Not out till May so a good few months before then. I’ll save the rest for another post though ^_^
