  • Have you ever heard anyone breathe in farm?

  • That's literally what this experiences.

  • Hello.

  • Welcome to take your creative play.

  • I am your host, Emma.

  • And today I am here with the wonderful Chris Okano.

  • Hello, Not the ambassador.

  • Not so, Ambassador.

  • Indeed brings us to today's video where we are eating a lot of different natto snacks.

  • My favorite who?

  • All right?

  • I don't know.

  • Not are fermented soybeans.

  • Yes, and Chris eats them.

  • Do you still eat them every day for breakfast when I can?

  • Do not actually, probably you healthiest, cheapest food in the world that I know off.

  • It's like in Japan.

  • You can like a pack of three for like 60 m.

  • Yeah, just like 60 cents USD.

  • It's really cheap.

  • But it's also one of the foods that a lot of foreigners have trouble stomaching because the taste is quite strong and the texture is quite interesting.

  • It's very sticky, very slimy.

  • We have some interesting products today from the company Casson ago in Ibaraki.

  • So we're gonna be trying some different things today.

  • We have waffles made out of NATO.

  • We have dried natto beans and we have some really special uh, not that tastes is a different consistency than normal not, but we'll explain it as we get there.

  • So basically, actually, in this video for me, I love notto.

  • I've eaten it since I was a little kid.

  • If you wanna be on the budget, eat healthy.

  • This is the best food and cheapest food.

  • I think in Japan that's still really, really healthy.

  • And lots of protein in this, not dog.

  • It's funny.

  • I've had this before e at home.

  • I made my own e love a nice game, love, not one time was really bored.

  • My first year in Japan was like, Let's try it.

  • However, it seems like Emma is not the biggest knocked off, so But we're gonna start off with something a little bit light a little bit, hopefully tastier.

  • The normal matter.

  • We're gonna be starting off with Nuttall waffles.

  • Okay, so we have a bunch of different flavors of Wafa.

  • We've got so many flavors.

  • We've got coco green tea, Yuzu chocolate chip dried potato, dried potato and melon are the key flavors for Ibaraki.

  • These are the most popular.

  • So should we start with those?

  • Yeah, sure.

  • Let's start with that one.

  • I think we should also do this 10 yeah.

  • There's a green tea one as well.

  • I want to start with Mel.

  • Alright, let's do melon.

  • I'm just nervous because I've never associated nuttall with a sweet taste before.

  • I don't even know if this will taste like Nuttall.

  • I'm kind of hoping it doesn't e Oh, I can smell the nuts.

  • Oh, boy.

  • Oh, no.

  • Oh, my God.

  • It looks like a regular waffle.

  • It feels like a regular waffle.

  • Does smell like Melania's.

  • Well, it doesn't.

  • Doesn't you don't feel like sticking.

  • No, no, no, no.

  • It is normal.

  • It's dry.

  • Um oh, wait.

  • I think they want us to heat it up to Yeah, there.

  • It does.

  • Say it does taste better with the microbes.

  • I was going to see how it is to start off with if I don't like Yeah, let's just try.

  • All right?

  • Okay.

  • Fires come by.

  • Mm.

  • I cannot taste in that door.

  • Can you say something?

  • I could taste and aftertaste.

  • Hint, but I'm more focused on it.

  • Tastes like a really, really good like high quality melon E mostly taste melon in sweet, sweet waffle.

  • You could definitely smell it, though.

  • So there was a competition in Ibaraki for the best souvenir.

  • So all of these companies put together, put forward their products and the waffle one.

  • But it wasn't any of these flavors.

  • It was a komatsu.

  • No flavor, which is mustard.

  • Spinach.

  • So that was the best souvenir products in Ibaraki.

  • I must have spinach, not a waffle.

  • That's interesting.

  • I thought I thought it was something like this one.

  • The green team?

  • Yeah.

  • Two.

  • Okay, so we have the dried potato waffle.

  • We only have half of one because I want decided to eat half of it.

  • All right, But we have half, so we can have a quarter each we put in the microwave how it's hot, or you could see chunks of potato in it.

  • Actually, it's much more like, not otherwise, a lot of not doing it.

  • All right, here we go.

  • I prefer warm.

  • Definitely.

  • Uh huh.

  • Actually, this is the easiest I've ever found it, you know?

  • Do you know why?

  • Because it tastes like you made like, some kind of knocked o bread paste and put it on bread, and they ate it.

  • So it's like, very lighten up.

  • there like ooh, actually like it.

  • Weirdly, I'm surprised, but I'm actually really enjoying it.

  • I am look, so looking forward to eating this.

  • Okay, so I forgot to mention before the waffles, And actually, pretty much everything except for this is made with the kind of being that's called Mom and a car.

  • And that's the kind of being that is less sticky and less smelly, smelly than normal, normal math or beans.

  • So all of these are made with that kind of being.

  • Let's move this one.

  • That was really good.

  • Yeah.

  • So we're moving onto a dried natural snack.

  • Break yourself some bad, but But this one, this one is actually really good for you before you drink alcohol.

  • And also good for hangovers.

  • Yeah.

  • Oh, you are so small.

  • Going to contest and just, like, down all No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.

  • You cannot know.

  • Stop ready.

  • No, I'm not.

  • I'm not participating.

  • Petition with yourself.

  • Wow.

  • Chris wins.

  • Whoa!

  • Okay.

  • Is it really nothing?

  • Oh, you kidding?

  • I thought it would be less here.

  • I'll have one.

  • I'll have to if you can't handle it.

  • How am I supposed to handle it?

  • All these smokes?

  • That's wild.

  • Well, it gets stronger the money to buy.

  • Eating 20 at the same time?

  • No.

  • So I think that these would go quite well as like a beer snack.

  • That's what supposed to Yes.

  • That's why I have a glass.

  • I mean, it tastes kind of like if you had, like, a bowl of nuts in a But you could also have a bowl of this leave.

  • A question comes down below whether you want to try this or not.

  • Okay.

  • So I can see that the North of flavor is getting stronger and stronger as we go up.

  • So we move on to the next one.

  • Yes, I have some more.

  • Let's do some stir.

  • Stir, stir, stir, stir.

  • Oh, okay.

  • So the next time we're gonna try is Mom and Alka, which is the kind of being without stickiness and without the so much of a smell.

  • So I'm gonna crack it open its huge ready.

  • Ready?

  • Ready?

  • Ready.

  • Ready.

  • Uh oh.

  • Interesting.

  • Let's see if they stop.

  • Stop.

  • Look, there's no stickiness to it.

  • Sticking.

  • It's literally just like a bunch of beans.

  • Like peanuts.

  • Yeah.

  • So different, General.

  • We'll look at that.

  • Okay, Ready?

  • I'm gonna mix it now.

  • Kind of a lot.

  • I'm kind of hungry.

  • It does still smell, but I feel like it's less smell than usual.

  • Yeah, I think you're right.

  • If I give you some, you have to eat it all.

  • Understood?

  • This is Japanese way.

  • Give me a little bit.

  • Oh, no, no, don't.

  • Almost not me.

  • Okay.

  • Ready?

  • Yeah.

  • It All of it.

  • No, no, no, no, no.

  • All of it.

  • Okay, good.

  • Yeah.

  • Okay.

  • So I have that much come by.

  • I'm not come by a little nervous and little nervous.

  • That's a lot.

  • That's a lot for my first.

  • Come on.

  • It's fine.

  • Mm.

  • He's just thio eat natto I've ever had.

  • Ready.

  • I think this is a good introduction than not.

  • E think so?

  • Yeah.

  • I think this is a good way to introduce to foreigners.

  • Yeah, I think definitely more foreigners would would be capable of eating.

  • I'm capable of eating it.

  • And I have a strong dislike of NATO.

  • We get on to the real one, uh, one of those from Ibaraki.

  • Now this one's from That's what That's the box.

  • Looks like this the way they package.

  • This is really, really nice.

  • Yeah, I've never seen not tow package this nicely, but it comes with all the sources.

  • Well, this one comes with three cut navy.

  • That's awesome.

  • So what's the difference is between these two, just the type of being is the whole bin.

  • And the bin is different.

  • My comes with Japanese mustard.

  • And also, uh, not which is just like things how NATO usually looks when you take it off.

  • Oh, yeah?

  • Well, you could look, look, look, look, look, you whatever you do motto, you actually wanna make it what they called Iowa.

  • Which means they want you to mix it, mix it, mix it so that you get this kind of, like, foamy stickiness to it, which is really good.

  • And that's the best part.

  • I could just feel the healthiness in this food already.

  • Yes, I did a challenge to myself.

  • A challenge myself.

  • How many of those do you think I in two minutes?

  • Two minutes?

  • Well, actually swallowing it, swallowing it and finish it.

  • Three in two minutes.

  • Four, two minutes.

  • One is like a huge amount for me.

  • So 56 I have 14 you are kidding.

  • You nasty No more.

  • Okay.

  • 14 about Okay.

  • E had 14 packets of not doing two minutes is around 480 g.

  • However, the Japanese champion had 350 g, which is approximately nine packets in 25 6 25 seconds.

  • Can you imagine eating nine pockets of this in 25 seconds?

  • It's really I think they had to do like that.

  • Like that nine times a little bit.

  • What is that?

  • E hate the sound of Chris sitting?

  • Not so he brings it in.

  • You breathe in.

  • The not toll on it kills me inside.

  • Um, but them a chance.

  • It's actually one of the better tasting others of a hat.

  • I don't know.

  • Maybe I've already had, like, the cheapest stuff in the supermarket.

  • So this stuff is actually some of the better Not I've had.

  • I still don't enjoy nothing personally.

  • So compared to the nettle that I've had before, this one is definitely the most easy to eat.

  • It just tastes like, you know, it's a lot dryer, so it's not gonna be so sticking in your mouth.

  • I really enjoyed this one.

  • Uh, this one probably second best for me, but it's still better than, ah, lot of not so that I've tasted before.

  • You just having a good time there.

  • I'm loving this record, so happy, so you don't always have to have not just by itself or with some source.

  • There's a lot of different ways that you can have it.

  • You can have it with eggs or seafood.
