UHA Mikakuto Korokke no Manma Croquette Cracker

In September 2017, UHA Mikakuto introduced into the market a unique snack that hadn’t been around before, which I bought today for this blog article.

What I picked up this time is this Korokke no Manma (コロッケのまんま) cracker (Price: 150 yen) from UHA Mikakuto’s Sozai no Manma (惣菜のまんま: Side Dishes as They are) series.

As you can see in the photo, the packaging has a picture of a delicious-looking croquette on the front, to which I was attracted.

In the bag, there are five small pieces of breaded fried snacks.

As the Japanese phrase のまんま means as it is, the treat, Korokke no Manma, is like a miniature version of a croquette.

Texture-wise, unlike real croquettes, these fries are pleasantly crispy like a cracker.

But their taste and smell are very close to actual croquettes, which makes me think this treat is like it’s freeze-dried.

As you can see in the table, the UHA Korokke no Manma cracker uses almost the same ingredients as the regular croquette commonly made in Japanese households.

I don’t know how the maker produces the snack. But to me, it is like a freeze-dried croquette and as delicious as an actual one!
