In July, I got a bottle of Retsu Junmai Ginjo from MelindaJoe, for SakeSwap. However, as I was in the process of getting ready to leave, and was busy, and had a huge number of drinking parties lined up already, I didn’t get around to drinking it until now. FINALLY! I SHALL CRACK IT OPEN!
Fast on the heels of the Double Cheese Pringles, I came across these two half-cans at another local Lawson Station.
As always, sucker for limited edition flavours of junk food, I jumped right in. Prior to eating, my expectation (or rather, my hope) for the Cheese Dog ones would be that there’s something to differentiate them from the Double Cheese ones — I want to taste tubesteak, dammit. The BBQ Chicken ones have a picture of a grilled fajita/gordita/wrap on them, which doesn’t satisfy what I think of when I hear “BBQ Chicken”, but whatever. I’m hoping for a slightly spicy, vaguely Tex-Mex flavour.
Right, so, the cheese dog ones are lacking in tubesteaktasticness. They are, however, different from the Double Cheese ones. There’s a BETTER cheese taste. Less salt, more cheese. Possibly, (and this may just be me tasting what I want to taste), a slight hint of pork, but I’m not entirely certain.
The BBQ Chicken ones are, as I suspected, just a touch Mexican-y. Like a Mexican version of the normal BBQ potato chip. Not too heavy, not overpowering. Not chicken-y at all, either. :/
I’m not even sure I understand the LA/BBQ Chicken connection. The LA/Mexican food connection, sure, okay, but “BBQ Chicken”? Someone from California enlighten me?
American Street Food Pringles are available at Lawson Station for something like 200yen or so, I would imagine. I must confess I didn’t pay attention. ._.
Me? I’m a big fan of music. All music. I’m not tied by genres or what the cool kids are listening to. I know what I like, and that’s what I listen to.
I’m a bit of a Japanese boy band junkie. I’m not ashamed to admit it! Johnny’s groups make me happy. I like their songs. My favourite group is V6, for no reason I can really explain. (shrug) As with many of the larger groups, V6 is split into two sub-groups. Today, I’d like to share the new mini-album from the younger half, Coming Century.
