Hokkaido is the largest island of Japan, located to the north. Thanks to their sheer size and abundant natural resources, Hokkaido is famous for its dairy farming. As a result, caramel and cheese made from milk are two well-known products of Hokkaido and popular souvenirs as well.

The sweet caramel flavor and the rich cheese flavor is enhanced by the saltiness from the soy sauce on the kaki no tane. The two flavors can be found in a set. Satisfy your cravings for both salty and sweet at once with these snacks!

Takko garlic is a famous regional product of Takko, a town in Aomori prefecture, which has been featured on various TV programs.

The difference between the Takko garlic and standard garlic is the sweetness and the umami. Aomori is located in the most northern tip of the Honshu island of Japan. The garlic produced in these cold winters contains a higher natural sugar content in order to protect itself from freezing.

This kaki no tane is flavored using the powdered form of the Takko garlic to get the taste of the special regional garlic evenly dispersed through each snack.
