It was a little later than usual this year, but rainy season has finally arrived. It marks the return of constant downpours, suffocating humidity, cockroaches and the deafening noise of cicadas. But thankfully it also marks the return of seasonal summer snacks!
All anybody really feels like doing around this time of year is sitting at home listening to the rain hitting the roof, whilst sitting directly under the air con. Therefore, it’s also the perfect time for getting stuck into summer snacks, and man, are there some great ones already on the shelves!
This year Coconut Pocky has returned, and it’s brought with it a friend – Tropical Pocky, mango and pineapple flavour. These taste like a typical Hallmark summer, but are worth a try for Pocky fanatics everywhere!
It’s been a while since KitKat has had any flavours worth talking about, but this passion fruit one is a flavour rare enough to be interesting, but not too weird to be disgusting. It’s a little on the sweet side so I suggest buying them in mini size.
MINT CHOCOLATE ICECREAM AEROS
These really are no different to the mint Aeros that you can buy in the UK. They’ve just added the ‘ice cream’ to make it seem more summery. They are tasty none the less!
CHOCOLATE BANANA TAKENOKO NO SATO
I love banana flavoured things – The faker the taste the better. These don’t disappoint!
WATERMELON ICE LOLLIES
A summer staple in Japan – Watermelon flavour ice lollies with chocolate ‘pips’. They are the perfect refreshing treat and they can usually be picked up cheaply in multipacks from the supermarket.
What treats have you been munching on so far this summer?
