Dagashi: Umaibo Teriyaki Burger Flavor Corn Puff Stick
As you may know, Umaibo (うまい棒: literally, Delicious Stick) is a Japanese corn puff stick manufactured by Riska (リスカ) and sold by Yaokin (やおきん), sometimes called the king of Dagashi snacks.
Based on the official site, currently (as of December 14, 2022), the puffed snack comes in 15 varieties of unique flavors, and this Teriyaki Burger (テリヤキバーガー) (Price: 12 yen) is among them.
Umaibo Teriyaki Burger
Umaibo Teriyaki Burger went on the market in 1980. Known as one of the oldest flavors of Umaibo, this treat recreates the delicious taste of the Teriyaki Burger that is popular in Japan and also offered by McDonald’s.
By the way, the McDonald’s Teriyaki Burger uses plenty of fresh lettuce and rich, creamy mayonnaise, which make the perfect pair with the hamburger steak doused in a sweet and delicious teriyaki sauce.
Let’s get the topic back on track. As you can see in the photo, Umaibo is shaped like a cylindrical tube and has a light, crunchy texture. Although the taste of this flavor is not close to McDonald’s Teriyaki Burger, the snack is pretty good, and I love it.
Accented with a hint of fruitiness from tomato, Umaibo Teriyaki Burger has a satisfying combination of sweetness and savoriness, long loved by many people here in Japan.
