  • These are winter only limited time japanese snacks.

  • Oh, mm hmm.

  • I don't know about all of you, but it is super cold here in japan and to be honest, I don't really like the cold unless I'm up on the mountain snowboarding or something like that.

  • But one of the things that I do love about the winters here in japan is that the snack companies bring the heat with all of their new products.

  • They have a limited time only winter special is that you can only get during this time.

  • So it just gets me really excited and I wanted to share all of these next with you this time around for this year.

  • But y'all know the deal before we start this video.

  • That said, here's some fire for this cold as winter.

  • You want some, you want some number one, you, you potato powder snow cheese flavor from calvi calvi coming hot with their fuyu potato eating winter potato.

  • Actually they have several different kinds of potato for this season.

  • They have their hot potato, which is like spring, they have their nuts, potatoes, summer and so on.

  • And then they have this special potato for the winter.

  • So this year says kona Yuki cheese.

  • Ooh kona Yuki means powder snow.

  • So it's kind of like a powder snow cheese.

  • One thing to note is that these potatoes are from Hokkaido.

  • So it actually uses three types of cheeses.

  • Carmen, Bell cheddar and Gouda and it's not just like caked on there, but they've taken it and just lightly sprinkled it on top.

  • Ah, fry the winter potatoes in a bag.

  • Take a bite of this crispy little chip you can see, wow, hmm, I cannot get enough of these chips.

  • In fact, this is one of Michael's favorites for the winter.

  • I love really, really cheesy potato chips, but this is cheesy but it's not super strong.

  • It's more of a gentle cheesiness, like adult luxury type cheesiness and it is kind of addictive where cheese taste builds and builds, makes you want to eat more.

  • So this is actually my favorite.

  • So good.

  • I was waiting for power to be done so I can finish this whole bad.

  • Um anyways, they made it powder snow cheese flavor, but the powder snow.

  • Lakey like melting goes away quickly.

  • Part is I think in the texture more so the flavor, it's like, it says here means like it's flaky and light crispy.

  • It also comes in another flavor powder snow salt.

  • It's an extremely light salt taste.

  • So it's not really one of my favorites, but you can taste the potato chip a bit more.

  • I don't know if we're going to see Michael again, but it's going to finish these chips.

  • Number two America pudding by motto.

  • What time is it pudding time?

  • This is the pudding that is only served in the winter.

  • I love what it says here.

  • It says meaning happiness only for this moment.

  • What tomato?

  • Maybe I should make a T shirt, wow, look at that blown out loveliness.

  • If I were to try to pour it, it would definitely come out.

  • Maybe it has a 45 degree consistency.

  • Do you always use a spoon or just like do some people just try to get their pudding like this?

  • Yeah.

  • Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm mm mm mm.

  • I the only one that just tries to drink it like out of the cup that is so creamy.

  • It definitely has a milk taste.

  • It's super, super light.

  • Almost so light that it's close to bordering on just drinking straight up milk.

  • There is some consistency here, but once it goes in your mouth it just melts like sweet milk heaven.

  • Hmm It's kind of so rich that you think that this is quite a small serving.

  • But to be fair, I feel like this is all I need.

  • It is that rich and creamy.

  • But wow, that is so good.

  • Let's bring on the next one.

  • Number three.

  • Take no co no sato milk tea flavor by McGee winter edition to Conoco Nagasato.

  • Coming at you check this out.

  • We got milk tea for you.

  • I don't know, but I feel like in japan people are more in love with milk tea than Coco.

  • That's just observations, observations here.

  • It says right here.

  • Earl gray milk tea and bam you got the limited edition sticker right there.

  • This is around japan.

  • It is your chocolate snacks kind of like a biscuit cookie on the inside and they have the chocolate on the outside, bam bam bam.

  • Conoco is bamboo and then sato is kind of like village.

  • I guess you can see they have a bamboo village.

  • Usually it's kind of like a cookie biscuit smell but in here you can definitely smell the milk tea.

  • Mm hmm I feel like milky is getting poured all over my head right now.

  • I'm like just immersed in milk tea.

  • That is so milk tea.

  • They've done so well with making this milk tea flavor.

  • You can't even taste the chocolate and I love just how it has a crunchy biscuit center and they've solidified milk tea in this little chocolate biscuit.

  • Just amazing.

  • This is something another product that they can probably sell throughout the year.

  • Number four Odin kansai style by toy role.

  • So nothing says winter in Japan like odin and look at this, it comes in a super duper mobile package.

  • You can take this on the road, you can take it to school, you can take it to work and whenever you need it, you can just pop it in the microwave and you are good to go with your own day and love warm it up chris.

  • I'm about to warm it up chris that's what this one is there kansai version.

  • And then the other one that I've seen is guava version.

  • Oh this is the most lydia wouldn't I've ever seen in my life?

  • That smells like a japanese combination in the winter.

  • For those of you that don't know what it is.

  • Like one of those typical winter meals here in japan.

  • They have it in the convenience stores like sitting at the register just all heated up and then put it in a bowl and then like they charge you per item.

  • Look at all of this loveliness.

  • I love how you have this kind of like a side window pane here.

  • So you can see all the ingredients inside.

  • Let's just take a sip of this super quick.

  • That is the odin soup.

  • It's like dashi but a little bit lighter.

  • Um I think that's what the con side.

  • I think they have like a lighter dashi area.

  • First of all you have you susie here.

  • Mm hmm.

  • It's a fairly tender piece of meat.

  • Not bad.

  • It's like kind of like a tripod.

  • That has a full egg right there.

  • Mm wow!

  • That is amazing.

  • You know like having a full egg usually fills me up.

  • It takes a lot of room in my stomach and there you go.

  • You have daikon radish, wow!

  • That is super soft.

  • Makes sense.

  • It's been marinating in this juice for so long.

  • That is so soft.

  • Like it just melts when you take a bite.

  • So nice.

  • It has a cognac which is I think maybe an english con jack.

  • Mm hmm.

  • It has bouncy, very firm jelly texture.

  • I think one of the reasons why japan has such an interesting selection of products in the winter is because it's really the time where people get together, go home, see family and you're sitting literally inside of your house because it's so cold watching tv hanging out.

  • So people go to the convenience store to buy a lot of food and bring it home.

  • You just have all of these interesting snacks that people want to try.

  • So that's why a lot of snack manufacturers bring some of their best products during this time.

  • Number five.

  • Ghana White truffle by lat truffle shuffle, truffle shuffle, truffle shuffle, truffle shuffle.

  • Yeah, we got the premium Ghana white truffle.

  • This box just feels premium.

  • Look at this.

  • I feel like this should come with like a Vuitton bag or something.

  • Look at these wonderful pieces of white truffle chocolate.

  • It's so premium.

  • Only five come in the box.

  • A little mini snowballs.

  • Look how white that is.

  • It's like a moon.

  • Like this is the chocolate that they give you.

  • If you are riding first class on an airplane.

  • It almost looks like a reverse egg.

  • Mini quail egg.

  • I guess basically you have kind of like a powdered sugar on the outside.

  • You can see how like powdery it is.

  • And then just on the outer shell you have, they're gonna chocolate.

  • And then in the center I read this correctly in japanese.

  • Ooh, so put it in a chocolate just by checking online.

  • I put out in, it is supposed to be like roasted nuts mixed with caramel and I kind of like mashed up and it just has that luxury feeling it's pretty hard, but it is very rich and creamy on the inside.

  • Whoa!

  • I lost all my balls.

  • I think I said it's okay, five seconds.

  • All right, look at that.

  • It's even served on a gold spoons.

  • You know that it's luxury.

  • Let's see if we have a gold spoon.

  • I have a ton of silver spoons, but I didn't really have a gold spoon.

  • So I think this is the closest we're gonna get right there.

  • This is wolfie spoon and let's try, Let's see how this feels.

  • I don't know if the spoon made that much of a difference, but it is still pretty good.
