There’s something about Tanabata (たなばた) that made this Tohato Caramel Corn Snack irresistible.
I’ve had these before many times but I really fall for the various designs Tohato puts on the packaging nearly every time.
Tohato (株式会社東ハト) is a very known snack company in Japan. Their snacks can also be found sold in various international, Asian and multicultural markets around the world.
Their most popular snack is this caramel corn snack which comes in a variety of flavors and designs.
You can find a list of their products on their website.
Another themed Tohato Caramel Corn Snack I tried was the Tohato Anpanman theme!
Check out my review!
ふんわり、 サクサク、すうっと、とろけてキャラメルの香りがくちいっぱいに広がるやさしおいしさ。袋の中で、ローストビーナッツの香りと塩気がキャラメルキャラメルコ一ンに移ることでこの、ぜつみなおいしさが生まれます。-1971 年 誕生-~Tohato website.
Translation: Soft, crispy, soft, melty and caramel scent spreads throughout your mouth. In the bag, the aroma and saltiness of roasted peanuts are transferred the caramel corn, creating this exquisite taste. -Born 1971-
I love these! They taste like sweet caramel popcorn but instead they’re puffed. You get the same amazing treat without getting the popcorn flakes stuck in your teeth and biting into random kernels. These also practically melt in your mouth; you don’t necessarily have to chew them.
These taste a lot like the Crunch n’ Munch caramel popcorn.
These also contain peanuts, like actual bits of peanuts. Something to watch out for if you have a mild nut allergy.
I got these at Daiso in Queens, NY.

Would I buy the Tohato Caramel Corn Snack again?
Worth Trying?: More than once.
I enjoy having this snack every time I buy it so I do recommend it. I’m excited to try all the other neat flavors they have once I find some, like the matcha flavored caramel corn.
