Minatsu Zaru Soba (Product of Korea)

Oh… the picture my iPhone took doesn’t reflect how pretty the colors of the packaging is…

Minatsu Zaru Soba (Japanese Buckwheat Noodles)

I came upon this at a Korean supermarket. The packaging is so Japanese pastel-cool, and get this: three pounds of noodles for less than five dollars!

There are 15 one-serving bundles in one pack. And the taste isn’t bad. It certainly is better than Shirakiku’s cheap soba noodles. Oddly, this turned out to be a Product of Korea! The label though is in Japanese and English.

Ingredients: Wheat Flour, Tapioca Starch, Buckwheat, Salt, Water

Shiro (White) Daifuku Red Bean Cake

The packaging is all that’s left. As usual, I ate the contents of the package before remembering to take a picture. This variant from Shirakiku didn’t make that big an impression on me. I can’t even remember what color the filling was. I like the green yomogi and black kurogoma daifuku better.
