■「Mini size Pucchin pudding」(Glico)
Do you know what the nationally famous jiggly pudding is in Japan? It’s Pucchin pudding! You can easily find this at any convenience store and grocery stores. The regular size one is 134 calories, but this Mini size Pucchin pudding is perfect when you want to eat something light on a diet.
We kept its good-old taste into this smallest pucchin pudding ever, so that you can easily eat it in one bite. We recommend you eat this after refrigerating it as a summer snack.

■ 「Shrimp flavored chips mini」
Last but not least, mini version of Shrimp flavored chips with the favorite phrase “Once you pop, you can’t stop” and this has been everyone’s favorite since 1964. It has amazing taste and so much calcium because we use the whole wild-caught shrimp with its shell.
Although the package is about one third of the original size, the chips are the same size as the original ones.
You can feel the crispiness as you bite into it, it will satisfy with even the small portion.
Of course it’s perfect for snacking and because it is a small portion, it goes well with an evening drink.
