  • And it said excellento crepe, excellent crepe.

  • - Looks good.

  • - Thank you.

  • What I see it's a baking chocolate chips?

  • - Semisweet chocolate morsels.

  • Usually used for baking.

  • (giggles)

  • Well I know this is good, I have had it before.

  • (laughing)

  • Good.

  • Does it has to be semisweet?

  • - I think semisweet is a good balance.

  • Oh this one's actually kind of coated

  • in like a chocolate cream.

  • I didn't really realize that from the outside.

  • (chewing)

  • Mmm.

  • - It's good right?

  • - I dunno if you can see that

  • but it's almost like a Kit Kat, but even lighter.

  • This is good.

  • - I wanna try mine.

  • - Yeah, I wanna try mine.

  • (laughing)

  • - Mmm.

  • - Is it bringing you back to childhood?

  • - Yeah.

  • - To grandma's house?

  • - Yeah, memory of grandma.

  • I think I like mine better.

  • - That's okay, I think I like mine better.

  • (laughing)

  • - Mine's more complicated though.

  • - What are you talking about more complicated?

  • (laughing)

  • - Like this is straight up chocolate.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Will you swap my snack and your snack?

  • 'Cause I won't.

  • - Well I want some but--

  • - Oh, you already swapped snacks.

  • (laughing)

  • - [Both] Next snack.

  • - To swap, or not swap.

  • - Okay, three, two, one.

  • (upbeat music)

  • I feel like your snack there is no surprise.

  • - I was showing somebody else my snacks

  • and they said that it was old man snacks.

  • - I was gonna say, I feel like you are old man

  • trapped in young man's body.

  • - It'll be an easy transition to the old man body then.

  • (laughing)

  • Do you know what kind of orange it is?

  • - Isn't it dekopon?

  • In Japanese I think it's called dekopon.

  • - They call it sumo in the grocery store.

  • - Is it because look like a sumo wrestler?

  • - I think so.

  • It's kind of like a bloated orange.

  • And it always has this little mound up there

  • so if that was like the sumo wrestler's head,

  • this is his body.

  • And in general I tend to buy fruit every Saturday.

  • And then that's a common snack I have.

  • And right now, this is the hot fruit to have.

  • (laughing)

  • What's your snack?

  • - Can you guess just looking at this picture?

  • - [Andrew] Honey pretzels, or garlic hot dogs.

  • (laughing)

  • - Neither.

  • (laughing)

  • So this called (speaking in foreign language).

  • I'm also like old lady.

  • This is kind of like grandma's favorite food.

  • So we both like old folks.

  • - Yeah, refined taste you know.

  • - Yeah, this is like fried dough,

  • and it's soaked with syrup.

  • - And is this like nuts?

  • - Yeah, it's peanut.

  • - Nut chunks, oh okay peanut.

  • So it's like a sweet Cheez Doodle.

  • - Let's swap then.

  • - Okay, sure.

  • (jingle)

  • Oh this one has easy open.

  • - [Rie] Yeah, this doesn't have easy open.

  • (laughing)

  • - What are you talking about?

  • Fruit is the only pre packaged food made in nature.

  • - That's true, it's like eco friendly.

  • - That orange smells good.

  • (laughing)

  • It smells like honey roasted nuts.

  • Like a can of beer nuts.

  • What do I call this?

  • (speaking in foreign language)

  • (speaking in foreign language)

  • - Yeah.

  • (chewing)

  • (speaking in foreign language)

  • - Mmm. - Mmm.

  • This is really very much like a honey roasted nut Doodle.

  • (laughing)

  • - I like this, this is juicy.

  • Sometime it's like citrus is hit or miss,

  • but this it's like has a nice kick.

  • Sweet and sour, and this is what exactly

  • you want for orange.

  • - This would be an excellent pairing with beer.

  • I like it a lot.

  • - Nice. - I might swap you for this.

  • - Yeah, me too. - Really?

  • - Mhm, ready?

  • - One, two, three.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - I like how yours is, what you see is what you gonna eat.

  • (laughing)

  • - Yeah this is probably the most regular

  • of all of my snacks.

  • But this one also has a slight modification

  • which is this hot sauce.

  • - [Rie] Oh is it special?

  • - This is actually very accurate

  • to what I do in my regular snacking practice at home.

  • Where I often have tortilla chips but no salsa.

  • And so I end up just sitting and eating

  • single chips where I like, drop hot sauce

  • on each one and eat it.

  • (laughing)

  • Now this is the most lazy my snacking gets.

  • I think I eat this one,

  • not when I'm hungry but when I'm bored

  • and I want something taste exciting in my mouth.

  • - Kuchi Sabishii, is your mouth is lonely.

  • So even you're not hungry but you want to eat something.

  • - That is amazing.

  • (laughing)

  • I got lonely mouth often.

  • (laughing)

  • But these particular tortillas

  • are very thick which I like.

  • What's your snack?

  • - This style of cookie it's my favorite.

  • So it's kinda like buttery cookie, and rum raisin.

  • - Do you like raisins?

  • - I do. - I do too.

  • - Yeah, okay. - Old people like raisins.

  • (laughing)

  • Okay, you ready?

  • - Yeah.

  • (jingle)

  • - The cookie does look very buttery.

  • I like that kind of, like shortbread.

  • - Do you have any instructions?

  • - I would just do like, one drop of hot sauce per chip.

  • I usually like start with a drop and then

  • I'll ramp up until it's just unbearably spicy.

  • It's this particular hot sauce too that's habanero.

  • - Yeah.

  • So just like, drop.

  • Like that.

  • - Yeah.

  • I guess I usually do it where the hot sauce

  • hits my tongue first, like I'll flip it over.

  • - Okay.

  • - I dunno why.

  • (chewing)

  • Whole chip.

  • Everything in Japan is packaged

  • to the maximum number of layers.

  • Oh interesting.

  • (chewing)

  • (shaking cookie)

  • - Why do you shake it?

  • - Why is it rattling?

  • (laughing)

  • The raisins are miniature and dried inside.

  • Smells good though.

  • (chewing)

  • - Oh my god.

  • You're losing all the raisins.

  • - I'm tasting the butter part.

  • It's close to what an Oreo filling is like,

  • but a little more buttery.

  • And it's got the kind of dried raisins

  • that raisin cereal has, which I kind of like.

  • I bet this would be great dipped into milk maybe.

  • You don't see a lot of raisin desserts in America.

  • - Why do you think people don't like raisins?

  • - I think it's usually when it's in something

  • and they think it's gonna be chocolate,

  • but it turns out to be a raisin.

  • - Oh yeah, that happens to cookies a lot.

  • - I get the disappointment, but I think raisins are good.

  • They do an important job.

  • - You wanna try yours?

  • - Yeah, let's try mine.

  • (laughing)

  • - Ohh.

  • (chewing)

  • - It is a little weird,

  • now that I'm doing it in front of people.

  • I'm usually alone when I eat this.

  • - So we are not gonna swap?

  • - Nope, I'm keeping mine, I like it.

  • - Okay, me too. - I like it too.

  • - Okay, final snack. - Final snack.

  • It seems like both of us got something big.

  • Ready?

  • Three, two, one.

  • It's a bread, and peanut butter and pickles?

  • - Exactly.

  • I'm gonna make for you a peanut butter and pickle sandwich.

  • - With pickle?

  • I cannot imagine the flavor.
