Aji Nori: Nico-Nico Nori’s Long-Selling Ajitsuke Nori

Today, let’s take a close look at one example of Ajitsuke Nori (味付けのり).

What I prepared is Aji Nori (味のり) (6 packs × 5 pieces version), a long-selling Ajitsuke Nori from Nico-Nico Nori (ニコニコのり) Inc, available at 120 yen or so at most supermarkets in Japan.

On the package front of Aji Nori, you can see the English description,

味のり providing you with a smile and health at the table. AJINORI, produced by Nico-Nico Nori Inc. since 1921 

The product uses nori seaweed from Kyushu’s Ariake Sea (九州 有明海), and the food contains no chemical additives (化学調味料無添加).

The package consists of 6 packs, each containing five sheets of Ajitsuke Nori. So the product is double packaged.

Aji Nori Usage 1

As mentioned in the previous post, we Japanese like to eat Ajitsuke Nori with a warm bowl of white rice.

The nori also often comes in Furikake flakes or ramen bowls.

I usually eat the seaweed sheet as it is, for it’s pre-seasoned, and I want to enjoy the crispy texture.
