Halloween Snacks in Japan

October 21st, 2013By Category: Culture, Food & Dining

Autumn is one of the best times of year in Japan for seasonal food and drink. Some of the seasonal delicacies include kabocha (Japanese pumpkin) kuri (chestnuts) and satsumaimo (sweet potato). During the summer I wrote about some of the summer snacks that were available in Japan. Now it’s Autumn and time for those Autumn Halloween snacks that have been making an appearance. Every Halloween in Japan special versions of popular snacks are produced with jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, witches and wizards just some of the cute Halloween designs that can be found.

Some of our favourite Halloween Snacks are:

Pumpkin Pudding Kit Kat

A special edition of Kit Kat just for Halloween. This one taste just like a sweet pudding with a hint of Japanese pumpkin.

Angel Pie

Angel Pie is a popular Japanese snack that consists of two small round cakes with marshmallow filling all covered in chocolate. They remind me of the wagon wheels we have back in Australia.

Kinoko no Yama and Tekenoko no Sato

Two of our all-time favourite Japanese snacks taste just the same, but come in special Halloween packaging. Konoko no Yama literally means “mushroom mountain” and these snacks are mushroom shaped biscuits with a chocolate top. Takenoko no Sato literally means “bamboo shoot village” and these snacks look just like little bamboo shoots topped with chocolate.
