Personally, I have never eaten this Coconut Sabouret before. But, it turned out to be one of the biggest long seller since 1965. This year is its 50th anniversary. As I think further, I have never bought this snack till now but, I don’t have any memory I was surprised by the presence of this snack. Usually, I will be surprised when I find something new in stores though, I don’t remember that moment about this snack. That means, this snack was around me before I began to recognize the world.
Let’s see the package. The outer package is like this. As is often the case with this kind of long seller, the package almost hasn’t been changed since the beginning. For, this is the 50th anniversary of this snack, the maker, Nissin is promoting this snack. What is great with their advertise is their article. “In 1975, 10th anniversary for Coconut Sabouret, Black tea mushroom came into fashion. And space craft of United States and Soviet Union docked successfully. And nothing happened to Coconut Sabouret” In their advertise, they quote biggest incident of the year and they conclude with the article “And nothing happened to Coconut Sabouret” What a strong existence!
Inside the package, you will see inner plastic box and 22 sabourets arranged orderly.
When you pick up one, it will be like this. For comparison, I put 10 yen coin next to it. It’s rather big.
OK, let’s eat. As I expected, this sabouret is so crispy. Syrup is put on the surface and dried but sabouret itself doesn’t taste sweet. This balance makes up the harmony of crispiness and mild taste. Maybe this phrase is worn out though, “You won’t be bored no matter how much you eat” fits this snack.
