Japanator Eats: Mango Ritz Bits Sandwiches

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.

Check out a teaser for Perfume's upcoming single Cling Cling

We're a little late in catching this, but a couple weeks ago Perfume released a little teaser and some images to go with their upcoming single, Cling Cling. As usual, the girls look absolutely fabulous, and I'm probably going to love this release just like I love pretty much all of their songs. Cling Cling will be released July 16th in two editions.
