Honey Apple Rice Crackers

rice cracker

I saw this adorable bag of “Kotsubukko” rice crackers at the Japanese grocery and had to pick it up. (^___^) Look at those weirdly cute looking creatures with bangs! At least, I think they’re bangs… I’m not sure what most of those animals are, but they’re so funny looking (especially the smiling frog-type-thing on the far right). Rice crackers are a tasty alternative when you want a snack that isn’t oily like potato chips or so-fake-they-can’t-be-good-for-you like Doritos. Actually, these tiny pop ’em size rice crackers are very strange indeed, because I have experience eating “uni flavored” ones, and loving it. It’s still a mystery to me why I liked it, since I kind of hate uni.

This particular pack was “honey and apple” flavor, which sounded much more pleasant than sea urchin. It’s also “calcium fortified,” whatever that means. (I’m sure it had just as much calcium as those milk Pockys that made the same claim..) Anyway, these were delicious! I’m not sure I tasted much apple, but there was definitely a nice hint of sweet honey, which contrasted well with the salty soy sauce.
