JAPABOX!

Every once in a while, a friend of mine who is currently doing some sort of incomprehensible technological tomfoolery in that friendly little island in the sea, Japan, will send me a box of various edible whatnots from the East. One arrived today, containing the following things:

- one large tub of lobster-flavored ramen noodles

- three small packages of "chapagetti Chinese spagetti [sic]!"

- one small bag of unidentified candy droplets with menacing cartoon face on front, legend "SUPER!", maufactured by Shigekix, flavor impossible to discern from package but appears to be water-flavored based on graphic of man made of liquid wearing crown

- one large bag of unidentified candy lozenges manufactured by Kasugai, featuring images of herbs, plants and seashells on package

- one large box of "Men's Pocky"

- one small packet of Glico Poscam chewing gum, flavor unidentified

- one large box of "EVERY BURGER", which I think is either a candy or a cookie that looks like a cheeseburger

- one large bottle of something entirely in Japanese except for the terrifying words "drinking vinegar"

I can't wait to take these to work on Monday!

We picked up EVERY BURGER in Chinatown in NYC last year, and it's a cookie and surprisingly tasty.

Men's Pocky is just regular Pocky except with dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate.

Dude, I can send you tons of GOOD Japanese jawn from the USA. HMart is only a few minutes away and they have tons of wee-eyed goodness, like shrimp crackers and chocolate mushrooms (Ben likes them!).

Friggin' H-Mart! Are you in Georgia or is the place a well-kept franchise?

I live near Cherry Hill, NJ. There are lots of HMarts around here--I know of 3 that I can drive to! LUCKY

Neat! There's one out in Norcross, Georgia (around Atlanta) that's absolutely gigantic but it's always crowded to near-unmovingness, so I have to figure it's the only one around.

Men's Pocky is my favorite flavor. You can get it in the grocery store here where I live. And I got those cheeseburger cookies in Japantown in SF once. So yummy.

Beware of the melamine, tho, dude.

2. PLEASE TELL ME YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LET YOUR COWORKERS EAT THESE UNTIL YOU HAVE AT LEAST SAMPLED EACH ONE AND WRITTEN A REVIEW OF IT.
