Cute Snacks!

July 5, 2011

Special Tanabata/Hanabi (Star Festival/Fireworks!) chocolate Koala snacks! Cute cute! Also Care Bear sweets. I don’t even really like the Care Bears but I like Grumpy Bear’s expression on this packet! So sad, so yearning. I see myself in him… I see myself in a cartoon bear, oh dear.

Can you tell I like grumpy things..? :)

Frisk Fresh

Hello! Here are some mints! I know, this should be a Cutest Characters update and it’s coming! Honest! But in the meantime, here is something else that’s cute, a teeny mini Frisk phone strap! Do you know what the shop assistant said when I got this in 7/11? She said “Kawaii!!” Of course she did! ‘Cause it is! It’s so small. I sure do love tiny miniature versions of things :)

Cute!

Some more cute snacks and by chance, it’s Moomin snacks again! A great new food shop has opened up nearby and I couldn’t resist these! So yummy and nostalgia inducing! Cocoa and milk, I’ve never had the cocoa ones before, exciting! Moomintroll is excited too, look!

Hello! Yes I am cheating! This feature is meant to be about characters that actually exist but it’s hot and I’m tired and confused and I can’t seem to pick one! And so…here’s a picture I drew earlier. It’s me, dreaming of things I’d rather be doing than sitting at a  desk, feeling hot. It’s still cute so…it counts, right??!

Summer Dreams

Mameshiba is a bean. A little dog bean thing. Or sometimes, a nut. There are lots of different ones: edamame, peanut, pistachio, azuki bean, jelly bean etc. It’s hard to explain, take a look:

Grumpy rabbit Mameshiba and a Babyshiba

Hm?

You can buy quite a lot of Mameshiba goods, keyrings, plushes, stationery etc. I really rather like the seasonal ones you can get in UFO catchers. At Christmas they had Mameshiba reindeer and in January, Mameshiba rabbits (year of the rabbit). He also appears in one of my favourite magazines,’ ねーねー: Cutest Character Magazine’.

Cute character magazine!

Mameshiba cartoon

Free gift!

And as if all this wasn’t cute enough, he’s also the star of some really rather adorable little short clips where he pops up and recites a little piece of trivia. Here’s one (with English text):

Cute!

Here’s another!

So you see, Mameshiba is awfully cute :)

(I wish magical little beans would pop up and talk to me when I’ve had to much to drink!)

Yes, yes this should have been posted yesterday BUT I fell asleep! I’m sorry! It was hot and it made me sleepy. Like a cat. Sooo, here are some cute snacks!

The bottle cap was on a bottle of mugi cha (barley tea), haven’t tried the Kit Kat yet. Why the ‘bitter’ trend? Bitter chocolate/caramel frappucinos at Starbucks, non-sweet Pepsi..? OK, the bitter chocolate frappucino is yummy. Can’t comment on the Pepsi, I don’t like Pepsi much! You know what is yummy? Easter Party ice cream! I haven’t been to Baskin Robbins since April and they still have this ice cream. So I bought some, yay! I think I like it ’cause it looks like the product of some deranged, sugar-crazed child’s imagination ;P

Glico edition.

OK, so, pictures of sweets by themselves: not enough!! It’s more fun to take pictures of them with little toys :) So here is Cyndaquil posing with some yummy Glico treats! The tin is full of some kind of matcha sweets. They look like green tea Starburst! I only really bought them ’cause I liked the tin… The red packet is full of heart shaped chocolates and the Kitty Pocky are almond flavoured. Bit too sweet for me but, nice box! I did rather hope that the gold Kitty charm pictured on the box would be inside but no such luck :( I do have a phone strap of Kitty as the Glico man though, it’s awfully cute!

Pokémilk!

May 26, 2011

Yeah, I couldn’t resist… Well, I did a little, I mean, each flavour has two to four versions of Pikachu with Mijumaru/Munna/Pokabu/Tsutaja and I didn’t buy them all. Just one of each. Pretty restrained no? I haven’t tried any of them yet but really, who cares if they’re nice or not?? Not me! If I thought about stuff like that I wouldn’t buy half the weird sweets I do. Oh wait, that might be a good thing. As it is I keep stockpiling crazy sweets that I forget to actually eat. Oops. Kit Kats are the biggest offenders here but having said that, I haven’t seen any new ones in ages! What’s up with that? Anyway, here are some photos of Pokémilk cartons (Gotta catch ’em all):

Aaaaand some more cute stuff. I’ll be honest, it’s mostly penguins…

I don’t know what to say today so…here are some photos from the Sanrio shop in Osaka :)
