I tried ignoring these when I saw these Tohato Anpanman Caramel Corn & Anpanman Soft Corn in Mitsuwa Marketplace but the packaging was so cute and vibrant I had to buy them.

What can I say, I like cute and tiny things that are colorful and shiny! (⁄ ⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄ ⁄)

Taste

I loved these! (✧ω✧)

I don’t know if there’s a significant difference between these Tohato Anpanman caramel corn and the original caramel corn but these tasted slightly sweeter to me than the original.

At first I thought I would eat a few but I ended up finishing the bag very quickly. These are puffed snacks that melt in your mouth or if chewed, they’re crunchy. Great thing about these is that they taste like sweet caramelized pop corn without the kernels and shells.

Soft Corn (ふんわりコーン) Product Details

リング形状のノンフライコーンスナックです。コーンのおいしさをベースにお野菜の甘さを加えたやさしい味わい。パッケージにはクイズがついており、お子様とお楽しみいただけます。

~Tohato website.

Translation: A ring-shaped non-fly cone snack. Based on the deliciousness of corn, the sweetness of vegetables is added. Gentle taste. The package comes with a quiz, you can enjoy it with your children.

Taste

These were hard to taste slightly. They were pretty bland unless I paid close attention. They had a bit of an onion and seafood taste to me. They were puffed snacks that were crunchy if you chewed them but would melt quickly if you let them sit in your mouth.

Not a bad treat but I wish it had more seasoning.

Also, these are a lot tinier than they look. I thought they would be the size of an Oreo cookie but these are more the size of a dime or about 3/4 in (1.905cm).

Would I buy the Tohato Anpanman themed snacks again?

Answer: Yes.

Worth Trying?: At least once.

The Tohato Anpanman themed corn snacks are the similar to the other Tohato corn snacks but the taste is slightly different. I can always buy the regular snacks but because this snack is catered to children, the ingredients differ a bit. For example, the Tohato caramel corn snack usually brings bits of peanuts which the product description specifically states that they aren’t included, probably to avoid potential a chocking hazard for kids.

I actually realized that I enjoyed these more than the original caramel corn even though, I don’t think the difference is too significant; I just thought these were a little sweeter than the original.

As for the soft corn snack, I found them too bland so I don’t foresee myself buying them again.
