happy birthday

Saturday was Satoshi's birthday.

I am not too sure when we had the conversation about mentaiko (spicy pollack roe), but he had mentioned that even if the nutritionist said it was "bad for him", he wanted to eat some with rice.

So, I figured, for his birthday...why not?!

Little did I realize that most vendors are putting sorbitol in their mentaiko...WT?!

Wasn't it a salty, savory food?

Why was it necessary for artificial sweeteners?!

I found a box...kinda pricey at 1166 yen (tax included).

It is made in Japan, the roe also comes from Hokkaido. (most are from America or Russia)

AND they don't use any red food coloring (or artificial sweetners).

Satoshi enjoyed this thoroughly...even licking the plate.

Happy Birthday...may 2017 be healthy & you.

well that is weird to have sorbitol in there but I wonder if it also acts as something else other than being a sweetener? how nice that you went 'why not'...heh heh...I went 'why not' to all kinds of goodies since memorial day weekend!
