|Japan should have plenty of Sonic the Hedgehog related food products. I mean, they produced just about Sonic-everything-ever. The question for this page is: Who are the people NOT taking pictures of it?|
|Japan Food 1 * Sonic Gear Main *|
|These are Sega Joypolis Sonic Biscuits. They're too thick to be a cookie, so they were probably aiming for cake-like. However, if you read the magazine blurb here, you'll see that they missed. When something uses the phrase "Never Ending Bean Cakes", you can tell you're headed down the wrong track. It doesn't say how many heads you could get for the 5 bucks. However, the reviewer finds them quite bland. These were an early Dreamcaste-era released food. Wonder what they were trying to taste like, but missed? Scan by Taaron|
|This isn't 100% a "Sonic Food" but rather a co-promotional food with a show called "Love! Live!" The character here is "Rin" so the ramen instant-pack is called "Rin Chan Ramen". For this promotion the character is always holding a Sonic doll. In this case, the special printed paper tops are the only thing Sonic particularly about the food.|
|It is interesting to see though, that they have 2 different designs (maybe different flavors) though the image/art is just a wider vs tighter shot of the art. Other promotions with this can be seen here on Gear! (Doll, standee, statue, bath)|
|Here's a better look at the Sonic Tokyo Joypolis Chocolate Crunch. This time...in a tin?
Tokyo's Joypolis is apparently still selling Chocolate Crunch, even after it's been out for several years. (Must be a success!) The old container (On Gear Food 1) was reported to be cardboard with a plastic lid, but looked like this. This one, however, is supposed to be a thin metal tin with a metal lid. Same food, new container? Probably. And, the same question as before: What IS the chocolate crunch itself? Write in for credit if you have tasted this stuff!
