Daily Quickie: Japanese Mixed Nuts Snack

Friday, December 09, 2011
Daily Quickie will be a short tag on the title which I'll use for blog entries about food I'm snacking at home, work or anywhere.

I have always had a fascination for Japanese stores, those in the likes of Daiso and Saizen. So every time I hangout at Trinoma, there is no doubt that the Japan Home Centre doesn't go unnoticed. I already bought quite a few items from this Japanese store -- toiletries, storage cases, and yes, even food items.

For a not-so-recent trip, I grabbed a pack of Triko brand Japanese mixed nuts snack (P88). I also got a pair of UCC Blended Coffee (the other one went to my date).


Although the coffee did not standout as it tasted like any other canned coffee, the Japanese mixed nuts snack on the other hand, stirred up my interest. Inside the large pack were 10 smaller packets of the crunchy goodies.


I gave each of our household member a packet of these Japanese snack. And although we weren't really familiar with this brand and kind of snack, our whole house enjoyed it, especially my little sister.


Within a night, we were able to finish all the 10 packets. Each plastic pack had green peas, nuts, and assorted rice crackers. I especially love the one with the Nori (seaweed) sheet.

It was funny how after devouring our newly-discovered snack, my lil sis was left unsatisfied and wanted more. So just last Wednesday before heading to Stacy's, I revisited Japan Home Centre just to get a pack.

How about you, have you tried shopping at Daiso, Saizen or Japan Home Centre? What have you been buying from them? Let me know if I'm missing out on awesome food treats from these Japanese stores.

  5. That looks interesting. I love Saizen and how affordable stuff are there. Let's make a haul there one time! Although the charcoal mask I bought from them just gave me zits... too much for my face to handle I guess... XD

  10. Wow. There's also Nori included in the pack? Interesting. What I like to buy are the chocolate-filled marshmallows.

    By the way, have you tried going to Muji? It's also a Japanese store if I'm not mistaken. They sell pretty neat stuff there like containers, furniture and even food.

  11. @Denise: I've seen Muji at Bonifacio High Street and their new branch at SM MoA. I haven't gone inside yet though. I think they're prices are higher.. ^^ But I'll try to check the food/snack section soon :D

  12. I share your fascination with Japanese groceries/stores. :)I go to Saizen for my matcha mochi and royal milk tea powder supply. Have you tried Choto Stop along Pasong Tamo in Makati? It's inside the Little Tokyo compound and most of the items sold there cost P75 only.
