Wasabi Snacks from Hokkaido



Ikeda Shokuhin are located on the northernmost island of Japan, Hokkaido. They have some innovative snacks made from cashew nuts and different kinds of soy beans. The wasabi flavored black soy beans are my favorite. They have other funky flavors like barbecued shrimp, barbecued calamari, toasted soy sauce and sesame seed salt.

Their line of nut products have a smooth crisp crunchy coating and also come in various flavors. They have cashew nuts, walnuts and pistachios that come in different flavors. If you love wasabi, you might check out their wasabi flavored cashews.

They send samples to my mother every year, and I've consistently been amazed at the quality of their products and the attention to detail they pay to flavor, quality and packaging.
