Collection: Japanese Snacks

Japanese "dagashi" is an inexpensive type of candy and snack that was popular among children in Japan from the postwar period through the 1990s. Dagashi often come in small, colorful packages and are sold in small shops or at street stalls. Some popular examples of dagashi include Umaibo, a cylindrical corn puff with various flavors, and Konpeito, a type of sugar candy that resembles small, sparkling crystals. Dagashi are still enjoyed by many people in Japan as a nostalgic treat, and some specialty stores and online retailers cater to the demand for these classic snacks.
