Tasting Japanese Snacks | Japan

Last year, while in Toronto, I came across an airline glitch to Japan from LAX for $420. Without hesitation, I jumped on the deal and booked my ticket. Japan has always been on the top of my list.

While in Japan, I fell in love with one of their snacks. It’s a purple chewy delicious strip fettuccine gummi. They were extremely easy to find at convenient stores. Especially since there were 7Eleven locations in every corner (more than the usual Starbucks we find in Los Angeles). I come to find out that of the 59,831 7Eleven stores around the globe, 18,785 stores (31 percent of global stores) are located in Japan and 2,423 stores are in Tokyo alone! (Well, that makes sense!)

It’s been a year since I visited Japan, and I’ve been craving those purple fettuccine strips, so I visited Little Tokyo. In the process of purchasing the strips, I ended up purchasing other items and made this video! Information on the store I visited below.
