seaweed flavoured kit kat and other cool stuff from JP

this is a pretty alt post, but hey. nicole got a parcel of rad shiz from a friend of hers who is teaching English in Japan. if you’re a Japanese person, you’d probably think it was filled with junk. but to us cool-arb-stuff-starved saffers, it’s like a gold mine. a pot of happy at the end of the rainbow. or just a pot, with hello kitty’s face on the side. here’s some of the loot.

At first we thought it was wasabi flavoured kit kat, but the salty aftertaste soon taught us otherwise.

Mmm. The chocolate is green, and tastes like salty white chocolate.

Nicole is sideways but only because it is easier for her to bath in the happiness of the JP parcel.
