Kado Tamanegi San Taro Corn Puff Onion

Taste: This snack bag had one of the more adorable mascot illustrations we've seen, depicting what appeared to be father-and-son onions, with the son sitting on a shovel held by the dad, and everyone smiling. It probably doesn't make any sense at all, but it was cute. The bag contained some large golden yellow snacks with shapes sort of like tater tots. We crunched in to find a soft but crisp texture, sort of cheese puff-like, but instead of cheese, there was a mildly tangy flavor, with onion and some other spices. If not for the onions illustrated on the bag and in the ingredients list, we might not have guessed that that the flavor was supposed to be onion, but regardless, it was tasty. Our snackers were fans, munching through many of these at a bar ... until we were told that no outside food was allowed, at which point people grabbed a few more pieces before we hid the bag away.

Aroma: Sweet, tangy and mildly oniony. Nice.
