First appearing in 2009, "Curry Curry Mada Aru?" is a new type of curry rice cracker (sembei in Japanese) created by Sapporo Curry Yoshimi, a local restaurant famous for its soup curry.
Now it's such a popular product that souvenir shops can't survive without it!
Have you ever heard of the famous Hokkaido souvenir, Hokkiado Milk Cookie Sapporo Nougakko? There are many strong rivals in the Hokkaido edible souvenir market, so I imagine many people haven't tried this cookie yet.

While stopping at a highway service area, I discovered a yummy-looking treat called Tokyo Kongari Caramel Rusk. It's only available at airports and highway service areas in Tokyo and the surrounding regions.
An American chocolate specialty store, Green Bean to Bar CHOCOLATE, has come to Fukuoka. This company has won a gold medal at the Northwest Chocolate Festival, the largest such event in the world! They've opened 2 shops in Japan: Fukuoka and Tokyo.

And now, I'd like to introduce a convenient app that helps you find ATM locations!
Yakitokibi is a popular summer treat in Hokkaido. Yakitokibi is corn, covered in a soy sauce tare, grilled over a charcoal fire.
