There is a ton of kindergarten things to blog about, but before I spam away there on a massive catch up binge…a little break from our normally scheduled programming. I am and always will be a sucker for Japan’s unique flavor profiles and Starbucks sucked me in once again…with cantaloupe of all things. I should have… Continue reading Starbucks’ Cantaloupe Melon & Cream Frappuccino
I really really wanted to get these. I have had good luck with the pink variety Kit Kats, and the wrapping on these were just so cute! There will soon be a new feature here at Tobidasu! Due to some changes in my health, nothing serious but some things that I should look out for,… Continue reading Strawberry Cake Kit Kat
This is one of my favorite Japanese dishes, but I can never get the recipe right when I try to make it myself. There are a few places that have opened up in my neighborhood that sell them. Makes my bike ride to and from work smell fantastic! Not sure if these would be a… Continue reading Japanese Caramelized Sweet Potatoes
So, it is Coming of Age Day here in Japan and I just had to share the awesome logo that Google has up in honor of it. Isn’t that neat?!
As a dessert, I LOVE this stuff. It is actually my favorite type of dessert and I am always so sad that only one of the many convenience store chains sells it. It is just the right amount of sweet and it just melts in your mouth. I’ve had ice cream and other candies using… Continue reading Almond Tofu Kit Kat
Well, another year has come and gone and it is hard to believe that it is already the 4th here in Japan. I am back to the half days of sitting at the Board of Education where they put us in a room of mostly windows and we all feel like a bunch of gold… Continue reading 2010 in Review
…and I learned that taking your cat for a walk is not a good thing especially when you are an obnoxious little girl who drags your cat across the pavement. Anyway, doing some shopping in the older area of town, I saw a couple walking their CAT. Yes, their giant fluffly cat. Next thing I… Continue reading I tried doing this once…
Not to be confused with the slightly terrible movie with Julia Robert’s called My Best Friend’s Wedding. Anyway, on Sunday I went into Tokyo for one of my best friends here in Japan’s wedding. We met when she was an exchange student at my university and her room was next to mine for pretty much… Continue reading ♥My Japanese Bestie’s Wedding♥
Never knew that blueberry cheesecake was a regional flavor for Kanto… Shinshu is the old name of the mountainous Nagano prefecture in central Honshu, Japan. Both of these Kit Kats probably taste fine…although I think the blueberry cheesecake probably tastes better than the apple one
This is a Yawatayaisogoro Ichimi – Japanese chili pepper – flavored Kit Kat. I have had things that mixed chili pepper with something sweet and actually enjoyed it. The Mexican popsicles that are mango with red chili are surprisingly delicious. However, I have something against putting that in chocolate. Sure, there are dishes that do… Continue reading Kit Kats are BACK!
