Umaibo Yakitori: Grilled Chicken Flavor Corn Puff Snack
Yakitori (焼き鳥) and Yakiniku (焼肉), whose difference I explained before, are grilled meat dishes that represent Japan, but I rarely see their flavors in snacks.
Instead, Japanese snack food manufacturers favor barbecue/バーベキュー flavor, but if you really want a Yakitori snack, I recommend this Umaibo Yakitori.
Umaibo Yakitori Flavor (うまい棒 やきとり味)
As written many times, Umaibo is the most famous Dagashi snack that comes in various unique flavors, and its lineup includes the Yakitori flavor.
Umai-Bo (うまい棒: meaning Delicious-Stick) is a puffed corn stick, and this one deliciously recreates the taste of Yakitori grilled chicken using a sauce similar to Yakitori no Tare.
Yakitori no Tare (焼き鳥のたれ) is a sweet BBQ sauce made with soy sauce, sugar, and mirin, applied on the chicken skewers while grilling.
So unlike other flavors, this Umaibo’s surface is slightly crusty. Its taste is also uniquely savory, making you feel the umami of chicken.
Even though its price is just 12 yen per piece, the Japanese Yakitori snack can surely satisfy you with its delicious savoriness!
