Pocari Sweat (ポカリスエット) is a popular sports drink in Japan. Many "westerners" (as we're called) think this name is gross. As if the drink itself IS sweat. 💦 I don't know why people make that leap in their thought processing. (Maybe, yeah, it kind of looks like it COULD be sweat... 😅) It's actually an "ion supply drink" - or a drink that replaces what you lose when you sweat during physical activity. 🤸🏻♀️🏋🏻♀️🚴🏻♀️🤾🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️
Back in my partying days, I would swear by it for reducing the likelihood of a hangover if consumed before passing out at the end of a particularly raucous evening. 🍹🍸🍶🥂🍻
It's also just really refreshing for summer days like today. ☀️🥵 Hard to explain, I guess it tastes like salty citrus? But nice. 🍋🧂😁
(The 2nd picture is my first ever purchase from a Japanese vending machine right after arriving at Narita in 2010.) #pocarisweat#pocari#ポカリスエット#sportsdrink#hangover#japan#japanesesnacks#japantravel#Japan2010#japanwithoutjapanese
🌊TOKYOTREAT - JULY ‘19🍉
- Life’s a beach -
🍑KitKat Peach Mint
(I was very excited about this new flavor which was just launched in May and it’s the reason y I didn’t skip. I’m personally actually not into mint but I thought this could taste quite delicious.. turns out to be awful to me 😂. Those KitKats have a strong mint smell and flavor, too much for me and make me feel queasy somehow 😷🙈. There’s no peach flavor at all.. but I heard a lot of ppl liked this one. Would give only 2,5/5 ⭐️)
🥔Doritos Sour Cream & Onion
(I was a little disappointed bc it’s a product that you get everywhere in Europe, especially the flavor is nothing special. However I’m gonna try this and I’m pretty sure they’ll be good tho.)
🍈Melon Cream Soda
(The 2nd reason why I wanted the July box. Already excited how this soda will taste.)
🍇Anpanman Grape Gummies
🥞Texas Corn Okonomiyaki
🍃Chocolate Mint Candy
(Doesn’t taste bad, there’s this mint flavor again which I don’t like haha but I’m used to mint candies and with those chocolate splits it’s ok. 3,5/5 ⭐️)
🍿Umai Sugar Rusk
(So curious about this one. I guess it’s from the same brand like the umaibos. I’m sure they’ll be very tasty as I already tried umaibo w sugar rusk flavor and this was amazing! 😋)
🍡Sour Peach Gum
(Tried this b4.. extremely sour but yummy. 4/5 ⭐️)
🍫Mini Chocolate Bat
(Thought they’re crunchy but those sticks or rolls are a little soft and the consistency is more like a cake. Quite ok but I didn’t notice a rich chocolate flavor. 3,5/5 ⭐️)
🥠Tohato Crushed Poteco (4pck)
(I love Tohato. This will taste 💯 awesome.)
🍭Sherbet Perot Cider
(Reminds me of my childhood, dipping a lollipop into a sour powder 😁)
🍦DIY Snack Cider Soft Serve
(Dunno but I’m usually too lazy to make my own snack 😅)
🥓Umaibo Tonkatsu Sauce
(Yay another umaibo to try! 😍 Would be even better if they include 2-3 umaibos instead of only 1.)

(￢‿￢ ) Clear, lime-flavoured Coke?! 😲 The latest mind-boggling Coca Cola Clear Lime drink is a Japan-exclusive flavour, but it just landed in our Oishii Fair! Snack on rare Japanese treats like Setouchi Sea Salt And Lemon KitKat, Coconut Pocky and Hokuren Hokkaido Milk without having to travel to Japan 😆
Excite your taste buds with these elusive Japanese treats at your nearest Cold Storage till 25 July!
Don't judge me. .
I tried to walk by this cart selling carved baby watermelon but my genetics had other plans. They became activated and took over. Before I knew it I had paid the ridiculous price of 1000 yen and was dismantling the watermelon in a way the servers had never seen. .
LUCKILY, the watermelon was one of the ripest I ever had. The only contrast I appreciated from US watermelons was the ease of the flesh to come off the rind. It was buttery smooth!
9.7/10. The .3 is taken off only because of the price. I definitely fucked up. Also @nigrasubstantia always mentioning Watermelon had a young goon longing. Thanks for nothing mang. .

Making a comeback this August is the incredibly popular (and delicious) Puku Puku Tai Strawberry! Inspired by iconic festival favorite, taiyaki, this fruity fish is sure to please 😋

Hey guys, it’s been a while. Apologies! .
So, a friend of mine got me this care package. They recently came back from Japan. 😍
I’m such a big #sailormoon fan so getting this #manga I’m super hype. No to mention the treats. Don’t know what the pastries are but I’m ready to try them. Do you know these? Let me know in the comment below.
Making of “takoyaki” (Octopus ball) 😋 Japanese snack that filled with yummy ingredients like a small piece of octopus, cabbages, pickled ginger and sometimes with cheese or mochi piece etc. Fun to cook, very comfort and yummy.
Thank you @yukiematsuihan for having us. You are always the best host for us. 💕
Hello my fellow snackers!!! Who loves these Japanese cheese almond snacks?! Cause I do! These are my travel snacks, cause you can pop them in your mouth without having to touch them with your travel eeky hands as they come individually packed in one bag with 16pcs for about $6. However I found a mega size one for $15.90! And I can only find them at @donkisg, my happy happy place (open 24hours in Somerset!) Take note you have to comb through the snack section, for some reason they place the mega size ones away from the regular size packs - so it’s quite hard to find, but when I do - I hoard and I sing the jingle all the way to the cashier! 🎶🎵🎶 Don Don don donki.....🎶🎵🎶 I love you don pen! 💕 I’ll miss you so much when I head home! Come to Philippines, please?! #japanesesnacks#dondondonki#cheeseandalmond#snacker#donpen
Heavily Meditated 🤣
I have a weakness for snacking and I cannot lie. Here are my TOP 10 recommended buys from the Oishii Fair at @coldstoragesg after having shopped to my heart’s content last Saturday & inhaled a fair bit of them in one sitting 😅! Some remain my old favs and others are new finds; listed clockwise :
1️⃣Tom Milk Baumkuchen : perfect to finish off as a dessert after meals; with just the right amount of sweetness
2️⃣Milkland Hokkaido Milk : Not a fan of milk, but with this Hokkaido milk, it tastes so creamy, sweet and fragrant I can drink this on its own! Also, makes your Avo smoothie taste divine
3️⃣Glico Pocky Chocolate : a childhood favourite that I finish in seconds
4️⃣Tohato Caramel Corn : also another childhood favourite! Comes with peanuts as well
5️⃣Octopus shredded snack : I loved that it was chewy and not too salty! Perfect to pair with beers
6️⃣Rice Crackers Assortment : I loved the variety they had in here. An assortment of rice crackers with sesame seeds, seaweed wraps, wasabi & etc!
7️⃣Kyoshin Mochi : skin is not too thick and filled with loads of red bean filling!
8️⃣Oyarzun-Imo Sweet Potato : I enjoyed having this baked in the oven. It was caramelised, soft and so sweet!
9️⃣Crown Cheese Pollacky : I regret not grabbing a bunch of this! It was too good to be true
🔟Meiji Choco Baby : another old fav that still remains to be my favourite Japanese choc go-to
Now till 25 July, you can shop from a wide variety of Japanese snacks, noodles, condiments, sparkling juices and alcoholic drinks at the Oishii Fair happening @coldstoragesg! If you have a weakness for snacks like me, you don’t want to miss it! // #coldstoragesg#CSOishiiFair
