This week on the blog is all about travel. But, what fun is a trip without something to munch on enroute to your destination? Here are some of my favorite snacks from Japan. You’ll no longer have to hide in closet to indulge yourself. These 3 snacks will satisfy your cravings and are perfect for sharing with your little ones. Here’s the latest edition of Fabulous Friday Finds: 3 Snacks From Japan That Toddlers And Parents Will Love.

Tamago Boro (たまごボーロ)

Take one look at these chickpea-sized snacks, and you might wonder what’s so great about them.The secret is in the simple ingredients (flour, milk, eggs, and sugar), which gives tamago boro its unique name (“egg cakes”).

These round bite-sized, lightly baked snacks that melt in your mouth after you bite open the outer shell. Tamago boro are commonly packaged for babies 7 months of age. Just look for 7か月から (nana ka getsu kara) on the label.

Sesame Seed Sticks (ごまスティック)

These are also known as Asuparagasu (アスパラガス). Asuparagasu is the trademark name for sesame sticks made by Ginbis, and the word literally means “asparagus” because they (sort of?) resemble the vegetable.

Asuparagasu are harder, and a bit saltier than generic sesame sticks. They also leave slight oily residue after you’ve had a few. Generic sesame sticks are thinner and have a mild sweetness to them. If you’ve got a baby or toddler in the teething stage, you can’t go wrong with frozen sesame seed sticks.

Tabekko Doubutsu (たべっ子どうぶつ)

I’m saving the best Japanese snack for last. Tabekko Doubutsu look like your average animal biscuit but these are anything but. Wonderfully crisp and buttery with just the right amount of sweetness, these biscuits make learning English and Japanese fun! The names of each animal are printed on the biscuit in English, and the back of the package acts as a Japanese-English dictionary of animal names.

The version for babies one year old and up are puffed, making it way for tiny plump fingers to grasp. They are not as crunchy as the original, but baby Tabekko Doubutsu are just as yummy!
