Asparagus Biscuits is a classic Japanese biscuit from the Tokyo-based confectionery company Ginbis, loved over the ages since 1968.

These snacks are sticks shaped like asparagus, and that is why they are given the name Asparagus Biscuits.

The stick is like a cross between a biscuit and a cracker with a sweet sesame flavor. The texture is addicting, and the taste is superb, never letting you down!
