Food in Japan – The good stuff!

Ah yeah, it was all about the food!  And we saw some interesting food and ate some great food in Japan.  First Meal in Restaruant
  The first meal we had in Japan was at a restaurant.  I forgot the name of the dish but it was very tasty!  It was pork with some veggies, rice, and miso soup.  I’m probably spelling "miso" wrong.  We arrived for lunch and had to take off our shoes.  We placed them in lockers and proceeded to our seats which were on the floor.  The restaurant was very cool and the food was delicious.  Of course, walking around town and shopping we also noticed a lot of unique food items.

I spent a lot of my time in Japan trying to find some wierd food items I had heard about.  One such item was the kit kat candy bar. 
Cheese Kit Kat?I had heard that they have upwards of 50 different flavors of KitKat in Japan.  It was confirmed to me by our hosts that there are indeed a large variety and different kinds of them floating around depending on the season and holiday.  The second night there I found my first such case.  Petit Cheese KitKat!  It was actually white chocolate covering some cheese…..and I bought it….and I ate it, and it was DELICIOUS!  I continued to hunt but was really hard to find other flavors.  I saw the cheese one a few more times and finally encountered some other flavors.

Orange and StrawberryLater that week I found one such store that had two other unique flavors of KitKat!  Orange and strawberry KitKats!  I bought them on the spot and of course devoured them!  Once again, they were delicious!  I favored the orange one overall and regretted not getting another batch. 

I was considering buying some to take back home to America but I know I would of just ate them anyways so I was saving myself from myself and figured the pictures would have to do.  I also wondered why the hell is KitKat being so stingy here?  Why can’t we get orange or strawberry KitKats!?

What will follow are a few shots now of other unique candy’s I saw and found:

Oreo Coffee!!

Crunk's not dead!

Okay so now a brief explanation….first I have no idea how to explain the cream collon.  I didn’t buy it or try it but not because of the name.  Or maybe it was because of the name….

The oreo coffee thing I did buy and try and I enjoyed it.  Who doesnt love oreo’s?  It was pretty much like the starbucks Via thing and tasted delicious.  Under that was strawberry crunch…..again why doesn’t Crunch have this in America?  Again it was delicious!!!! And last but not least was Crunky Kids!  I thought Crunk was dead…apparently I was wrong.

This isent even close to all the food pictures I got but I figure I could cover ramen in its own article.  But I will have to post two more pictures here.

Pepsi???Apparently in Japan depending on the holiday, Pepsi will release a unique flavor drink.  Since it was Christmas and New Years coming up we got to taste Pepsi – Mont Blanc!

Apparently this is similar to a roasted chestnut.  It tasted however similar to a caffienated coffee drink.  It was definately unique and I will admit I bought it again later on and took one home to give to a gift to a good friend.  Pepsi as a gift?  Yes, he has the pepsi logo tattooed on him.  So yes, it was an awesome gift for him.  Oh, side note, I also found Pepsi Twist in Japan!  It’s still alive down there!

The vending machine is not all that interesting till you take a closer look at them.  The blue under the items in question represent cold drinks, while the red represented warm drinks.  Also, some of those in the red are not actually drinks but rather soup.  I have bought corn chowder, potato soup, and tomato soup from vending machines while I also bought a cold coke or pepsi from the same vending machine. 

Okay, thats going to do it for this article I think.  I’ll still be posting a few articles in the next few days to talk about some of the sights and sounds and buildings in Japan. 

Hope you all enjoyed it!!
