I got some Japanese Snacks from Mitsuwa Marketplace

,

Hello and welcome readers. I will be talking about some of my favorite Japanese snacks from Mitsuwa Marketplace. I visited the San Gabriel location since it’s nearby. I found so many snacks and purchased many to try out at home. Since there were so many choices available in store, I took my time to find what I could. 

,

The first item I picked up was the Calbee Onion Rings chips.

,

The image of the onion ring chips makes me remember the Funyun chips you can find at Vons, Albertsons, or Ralph’s markets. Calbee has various kinds of flavors for chips. I saw the pizza chip flavor that I have tried before, it was cheesy and so flavorful. As for the Calbee Onion Ring chips, they are baked, never fried. They are quite crunchy and they taste so good!

The second item I found was Kameda Soft Salad Rice Crackers.

,

Growing up, I loved eating rice crackers. This Soft Salad rice cracker is my number one favorite. I can easily find it at Mitsuwa Marketplace or by visiting a market in Little Tokyo.  The taste is salty, and it is a firm rice cracker. There are about 10 mini sealed packages of two crackers in one bag. I can grab one to bring with me on the go. Since the wrapping seals the crackers, I have to make sure it doesn’t break apart while I am on the go. My family likes to eat this rice cracker whenever I buy it. I can’t describe the flavor, yet the crunch is so satisfying.

,

The third item was the Coris Strawberry Whistle Candy.

,

I bought this whistle candy and shared it with my friends. My friends and I have enjoyed trying to whistle and tasting the candy. Included with the candy is a little trinket or toy. The candy gives you eight whistle candies for when you want to be sharing it with your friends and family. Besides trying the strawberry whistle candy, I have tried the grape flavor. 

,

The fourth item I picked was HI-CHEW fruit chews.

,

,

These have grape, green apple, and strawberry flavors. As it is chewy, it is just as fruity. I really love eating these small fruit chews. They are so good, I cannot stop from eating just one or two at once. I am aware that there are other kinds of HI-CHEW flavors but I have not had the chance to try them. 

.

Although I was browsing through the aisles for snacks, I did walk around the market. They had a large selection of noodles, dry soup, vegetables, fruits, sauces, oils, sweets, and drinks. It made me feel like I was shopping in Little Tokyo. As coming to Mitsuwa Marketplace is rare for me, I was content with making time to come here. I left the market with a bag full of snacks and went home to share them with my family. I plan to share the remaining snacks with my friends soon. 

,

.

Additionally, I want to say that I will be coming back to Mitsuwa Marketplace with my friends. I will be buying more Japanese food items like the calbee chips, umaibo snack, soba noodles, and furikake. I like the convenience of going to this market since it’s nearby and not too far away.

  1. This is a great article . It gives me a direction to go in to explore new (new for me) foods to try.

  2. Tribbeca,
    You make me want to run out and get some snacks now!
    Question: Do the whistle candies help you learn to whistle or is it just a challenge to try to whistle with the candy in your mouth? Either way sound fun!

  3. The Calbee Onion Ring chips were delicious. I really liked the seasoning and the taste. I thought these baked chips were much better than Funyun chips. I can’t wait to go out and buy another bag soon!
