Last week, when I went to a hypermarket… intended to shop for daily needs…I got stuck again in snacks area 😀
And bumped into this “Koala’s March” (コアラのマ━チ)…a nostalgic snack! I never eat it for such a long time since my last visited to Jpn. Usually, I could find this bite-sized cookie only in supermarkets that sell imported Japanese foods (with intolerable priced) 😦 But this one comes with reasonably priced, Rp 4,620 per box (49 gr). Seems that it’s cheaper coz produced by Lotte China, not originally by Lotte Japan.
In Indonesia, this koala’s shape cookies, afaik, come with 3 flavors exist for the filling, chocolate, strawberry, and b+w (chocolate cookies w/ milk cream inside). But in Japan, there are also other flavors such as: sweet baked apple (yaki ringo), pineapple, banana, etc (yeah…Japanese could make almost anything as the flavor for their snack, even something that considered “rare”) 😛
I don’t know which was born first…but I still like “Panda” better than “Koala”. Although the koala’s cookie is crunchier than panda’s, I think it’s too airy and thin. And for me, the taste of Hello Panda’s chocolate filling is more appetizing than Koala’s March. But in the end, the choice is yours 😀
ps. What I like the most of Japanese stuffs is their stunning packaging! This Koala’s March cookie comes in hexagonal box, with “kawaii” koala’s cartoon printed on it 🙂 Hey, u can reuse it as “a stationery container” on ur desk! Put ur pen or pencil insides! 😀
