Katapote Tarako Butter Pretz (￥1,260Prices are approximate only and subject to change.
White Rabbit Express service fee and other costs not included.)* by Glico is one of the more adventurous flavors in the wide range of Japan-themed snacks, but tarako-seasoned food items surprisingly have many fans within the foreign community in Japan.
Tarako is salted codroe, a common wide-spread Japanese condiment. In Yokohama at my relative’s house, it was often served raw on its own with dinner while in Nagoya, my paternal family preferred it for breakfast. Tarako is also a typical filling for onigiris–the tasty riceballs wrapped in dried seaweed (nori). Lately, Tarako has been popping up in a slew of Western foods like pasta, pizza or in dips.
