Japanator Eats: Green Tea Snacks Part 3

Final installment of the green tea series is up for your viewing pleasure. It was a heck of a ride tasting all the green tea snacks that I got my hands on. Some were great, and some, were not that great... The main thing though is, just get out there and try something new. You never know when you will find that new favorite snack.

I just had to try these when I saw them at the store. I've never seen (or noticed) there were flavors besides cheese for Ritz Bits Sandwiches, and lately I've had trouble finding mango juice in my area, so I figured maybe a mango-flavored snack would satisfy my craving.

As I type this, I've got the bag open next to me and the smell is kind of making me queasy. It's that strong.

Japanator Eats: Green Tea Snacks Part 1

Green tea snacks are so lovely. If there is a green tea version of any food, I will undoubtedly get that version of it. I'm drawn into the bitterness of the green tea matched with the sweetness of anything else that it is with. For this first part, I have some green tea Pocky variations by the names of Pocky Crush and Pocky Midi.

Japanator Eats: Strawberry and Wasabi Kit Kats

It's finally time for some more snack reviews from yours truly! I got my hands on some more of those flavored Kit Kats that everyone likes to hear about. Strawberry and wasabi flavors both had it's surprising side to them, but not like you might expect. I don't want to give too much away from the video. Sit back and enjoy me snacking away on something yummy.

Power up your Atomic Breath with Godzilla shochu

I'm not quite sure what most people thought about the recent Godzilla film reboot. Personally, I loved the film. It's actually hard for me to dislike anything Godzilla, so you could probably gues I was excited to see this lim...

Got a rice cooker? Then you can make some tasty pancakes too!

The rice cooker is an appliance that you see pretty often in anime and dramas. Considering how important rice is in the general Japanese diet, that shouldn't be a surprise. What is surprising are the various other things you ...

Japanator Eats: Mr. Croissant Donut
by Kristina Pino

With my return to Japanator comes the return of videos in which you get to watch me eat stuff from Japan with more regularity. My first entry in this new era of food videos features an inspired dish, the Mr Croissant Donut, which takes after the cronuts of New York. Mr Donut has given them fruit flavors, serving up orange, berry, and mixed fruit varities, and then added some sort of filling for maximum tastiness.

I grabbed an orange cronut with lemon filling, and ate it on camera. Check out the gallery for some stills!

I'm having far too much internal conflict now to give an opinion.
