Japan snacks Ranking
The first one is Jagarico, which dominated the confectionery sales ranking at 2nd, 3rd, 23rd, 29th, and top positions.
Jagarico is a relatively new snack, introduced in 1995, which is made by shaping potatoes into thin sticks and deep-frying them in oil. They are crunchy and tasty, and quickly became popular in Japan after their release. It would be pointless to come to Japan and not try it.
Incidentally, the catchphrase for this snack is: “If you start eating, there’s no end to it.”
In second place is Scone. Snack food sales ranking, 6th, 10th, 11th, and 16th, are in good position.
A corn snack made from corn and deep-fried in oil, it was launched in October 1987 in two flavors, barbecue and cheese.
The dough is made by applying pressure and heat to corn grits by machine, causing the starch component to stick and expand.
Because it is made without a mold, it has a lumpy, stick-like appearance of varying sizes.
The third product introduced is Carl, which ranks 8th and 31st in snack food sales.
Inspired by popcorn, Carl was launched in 1968 by then-Meiji Seika. Meiji publicly announced that they were “the first curls to appear in Japan, where the concept of snacks did not exist.
What makes this snack unique is that the curls stick to the backs of your teeth. I would like everyone to experience this sticking feeling.
The fourth product is Kappa Ebisen, which ranked 9th 26th 45th in the snack food sales ranking.
Kappa Ebisen is a snack food made from wheat flour and shrimp, manufactured by Calbee.
Kappa Ebisen, one of Japan’s best-selling snacks, was introduced in 1964. It is a snack with a savory shrimp smell and goes great with beer. The catchphrase is “I can’t stop, I can’t stop!
Fifth on the list are tongari cones, which ranked 10th and 11th in snack sales.
Tongari Corn is a snack food manufactured by House Foods. The main ingredient is corn, and it has a unique shape like a slightly crushed cone.
This candy is eaten by both adults and children with their fingers in the holes. I guess that is the custom. It tastes very delicious. If you ever eat it, please follow the custom.
The sixth is Sapporo Potatoes, ranked 20th and 22nd in snack food sales!
is a potato-based snack manufactured and sold by Calbee.
The “Mashibu Vegetable” contains pumpkin, tomato, onion, spinach, carrot, etc. Molokheiya was added in the 2007 relaunch.
The contents of this snack are large, but when you eat it, it is gone before you know it. It is such a light and refreshing snack. Be careful not to eat too much!
Seventh is Caramel Corn, which ranks 21th in sales.
Caramel Corn is a snack food made from corn grits and manufactured and sold by Tohato since 1971.
In addition to the puffed snacks, the product features small peanuts enclosed. This is to help refresh the palate and to facilitate the salty taste that enhances the sweetness of the snacks.
Eighth on the list is “Kata-Age Potato,” which ranks 24th in snack food sales.
A snack food manufactured and marketed by Calbee Co.
Thick slices of potatoes are deep fried at a low temperature.” The more you chew, the better!” is the catchphrase, and the texture is firm. The chips are fried using the open-hearth frying method, which is the same method used when potato chips were first made in the U.S. in the mid-19th century. On the back of the package, the origin of the kata-age potato is depicted as an episode in which a customer at a hotel in New York State, USA, ordered the restaurant manager to slice potatoes into thin slices and fry them.
They are harder and more satisfying than regular potato chips. Real potato chip lovers should also try them.
The ninth item introduced is the podded pea, which ranks 27th in product sales.
Sayaendo is the best snack in the world that goes well with beer. It is no exaggeration to say that Sayaendo is the most popular snack among Japanese men. The filling is made from peas, of course. Just as peas go well with beer, so does this candy go well with beer.
The tenth item on our list is Karamucho Stick, which ranks 30th in snack food sales.
Karamucho are potato chips manufactured and sold by Koikeya, and are a spicy snack food based on the flavor of chili.
The catchphrase is “Why fries are spicy and why they taste good!” . Made from 100% fresh domestic potatoes and deep-fried in oil.
This product is spicy anyway. This is the standard for spicy snacks in Japan. The stick type is especially popular. If you like spicy food, you must try this product.
No. 11 is Aerial Thick Cheddar Cheese, which ranked 32nd and 40th in snack food confectionery sales.
Aerial, a corn snack with a new texture, is a four-layer corn snack made with a unique manufacturing process. Aerial” means “light, airy,” and it is light to eat! It is a snack with a texture that makes you want to eat it one after another. The rich cheese flavor is addictive.
These snacks are my favorite. I eat them the most.
The 12th item on the list is Osatsudokkit, plain, which ranks 35th in snack sales.
Thinly sliced sweet potatoes are fried until crispy. Enjoy the natural flavor of the ingredients.
Sweet potatoes are a food that contains dietary fiber. You can supply dietary fiber, a nutrient that is often lacking in our daily lives, in a delicious way.
It is probably the crunchiest snack food in existence. Plain also suits sweet potatoes, and those who like them will love them.
The 13th and final snack is Baby Star Crispy Noodle Snack , which ranks 48th in sales.
Baby Star Crispy Noodle Snack
Baby Star Crispy Noodle Snack is a seasoned fried noodle style snack produced by Snack Company. In addition to ramen, the company also produces other types of snacks, such as yakisoba, soba, udon, pasta, and other noodle-flavored snacks under the Baby Star name, as well as rice crackers and other snacks, all under one brand.
Baby Star Krispies were sold in small sizes to elementary school children. They were sold at a price that children could afford with their pocket money. However, due to Japan’s declining birthrate and aging population, the age group has become older and large bag sizes are now sold. Crispy is now the standard snack that adults buy.
