Kasugai Green Mame: Classic Deep-Fried Pea Snack

When it comes to the Japanese confectionery company that is known for having good and old snacks, what comes to my mind right away is “Kasugai Seika (春日井製菓)”.

In fact, I have introduced their classic candies that have long been loved in Japan several times in the past, which include this “Shio Ame (塩飴)” salt candy and this “Kuro Ame (黒飴)” brown sugar candy.

In addition to them, I sometimes have a craving for Kasugai’s “Green Mame (グリーン豆)” as a snack accompaniment for beer, which I actually picked up today for this blog article.

The product “Green Mame (グリーン豆)” introduced in 1973 by Kasugai Seika Confectionery is my favorite green pea snack and now has become one of the most loved bean confections in Japan.

As “Mame (豆)” means “bean” in Japanese, and just as the picture and text on the packaging indicate, the bag is filled with a lot of green peas.

The green beans are partially coated with flour batter, deep-fried, and salted, so these snacks are pleasantly crispy and savory with a moderate saltiness.

Also, the fried green peas are packed with natural umami taste and addictive, and often eaten with a glass of beer as an Otsumami, as well as being favored as an afternoon snack alongside green tea.
