New Curry Senbei Snacks

Posted on Thursday, March 18, 2010 | 0 comments

        Found this new flavor of kaki no tane senbei ('kaki no tane' means persimmon seed, since the little crackers in the pack sort of look like them) at the store yesterday. Yuki and I are all for trying anything spicy, let alone curry flavored, so we gave them a taste last night. Yeah...big disappointment in my book! First off, they weren't spicy at all; they were actually sort of sweet. Upon inspecting the ingredient list, we found syrup listed about midway down...yuck.
Yuki said they were 'edible', but I wouldn't eat anything besides the peanuts after the inital taste. General consensus: if you want spicy curry, stick to the real deal!
