Originator Kakino-Tane


Kakino-Tane is now one of the most popular beer companions in the country. Before I ate it, I thought I could eat it or not, but once I did, I couldn't stop.

This Kakino-Tane was born in a sweets shop called Naniwaya in Niigata, Japan, and was created by chance from a random incident (a machine broke down). It has become the most popular rice cracker in Japan. Coincidences are terrifying. This is a "Kakino-Tane" that cannot be conceived by a human brain alone. I'm sure that the evolution of the natural world is also born from such coincidences. It's just a coincidence that I'm living here and now, too. You too...


The picture of this can is so heartwarming and beautiful.

I also tried another Kakino-Tane (the best-selling maker, Kameda's). The color of the Originator is much darker. The smell of soy sauce is also strong. When I tried it, it didn't look so different. In terms of strength, the Originator has a bit of a pungent taste after eating it. A dull person might not understand. But it's good.

Hmmm, but how good it tastes with peanuts. I wonder if this strange collaboration can be understood by Westerners as well. Even if it's in a store, Westerners might not buy it. First, I have to let them taste it.

Afterword)
After that, around 2015, Kameda's Kakino-Tane became popular in the US and Europe as well. Well, with the Japanese food craze, Kameda's Kakino-Tane is getting a lot of attention. By the way, I heard that they are called kameda crisps. Of course, it has peanuts in it.
