Japanese Snackies Giveaway! snackies-snackies, num-nums!

Alrighty my lil’ foodies, I know that THIS is the one you have been waiting for! The Japanese Snackies Giveaway!!!
As many of you know, half of my life is spent in Hawaii, and when I was just a lil’ bub I ate different snackies than I would have if I lived elsewhere. There is a huge Japanese food influence on the Islands and locals grew up snacking on such yummies as Botan Rice Candy and Pocky! I have always been one to try new foods and I am not as fond of American candy as I am of other snacks from other far off lands!

I think that everyone should try different tasties from time to time, you never know what you may fall in luv with, food wise!
So for those of you who have never tried these snackies and for the ones who have and crave some more..Here is your giveaway!
So staying true to form: sharing what I love & making all you foodies out there happy, lets get to it!

But wait! There won’t just be 1 prize pack as I had planned…there will be 2! 1 large prize pack and 1 smaller one!

Prize pack 1 will include:

5-packs of Botan rice candy, 3-boxes of Lucky stick (like Pocky but bigger) in cappuccino creme, strawberry, & chocolate flavors, 1- box of Meiji Appllo strawberry chocolates, 4 boxes of Pocky in strawberry, strawberry creme, chocolate creme, & milk coffee flavors, 1 pack of grape soda gum (this fizzes!) 1- pack of soda candy (also fizzes) 1 package of Haupia mix(Hawaiian coconut pudding) , 1 pack of “soft candy” chews, 1 box of fortune cookies (not Japanese, but I love them!) 1- box of Sparkling Strawberry Kitkats, 1-box of White Chocolate Kitkats, and 5 mini cookie flavored Kitkats.

Prize pack 2 will include:

1-box of Lucky Stick in chocolate, 4-boxes Botan Rice candy, 1-pack of Soft Candy Chews, 4-mini cookie flavored Kitkat bars!
