thankful (part 2)

Recently V, was in Japan.

She was so nice to send me a book we had talked about when we met up last year as well as snacks and pu'er tea.

The kakipi (kakinotane rice crackers with peanuts) were from the Toyoko Inn. A chain of hotels near train stations around Japan.

I love how there were more peanuts than the rice crackers.

And how you can use the cap as a bowl.

Thank you V!

you're more than welcome! LOL, and I always think they have too many peanuts vs kakitani, but I love this mix and can't find it anywhere else.

and I love you too, Jalna! thanks for all the cards, they are all so special! I rarely have to buy cards now.

Jalna, V is so nice like you!

Take care.

lol V...I found the website of the company that makes the kakipi for Toyoko Inn. They only sell the arare though because the kakipi is only for Toyoko Inn. Anyway, am debating whether to get some arare online from them...thanks again!

Take care!

My cuz's friend belongs to a wholesaler club in Tokyo and I found almost the same thing there but with very fewer peanuts although the kakitani seems to be the same! Sure wish I bought more especially since it came it flat cellophane or plastic bags instead of those pet bottles. I guess it needs to be in the bottles at Toyoko Inn since they sell it from the beer vending machines as pupus.
I tried buying similar looking kakitani with or without peanuts from various stores but never the same. Kakitani not as crunchy and peanuts smaller which is why I was hesitant to buy more from that wholesale place in case it was the junky kind.
The Toyoko Inn's version has really fresh tasting peanuts, yah? so crunchy. LOL can you tell I like crunch?
