Komete Genmai Senbei Rice Cracker with Japanese Dip Gift Set (60 Pieces, 6 Flavors and 2 flavors of Dips)
Japanese senbei (rice crackers) are arguably the most versatile Japanese bite, so their popularity is no surprise when it comes to office snacks, presents, and omiyage (souvenirs). These senbei are thin, airy, crisp, and made with genmai (unpolished brown rice) for a light nutty taste, but it's the flavor coatings that make these rice crackers so uniquely gourmet.
“Sa-shi-su-se-so” is a cooking acronym in Japan to represent the five seasonings that are indispensable in cuisine: satou (sugar), shio (salt), su (vinegar), seyu (how soy sauce was written in the past), and miso. In addition to plain, the five flavors of these crackers correspond with the acronym: Kuchidoke Wasanbon (traditional fine-grained sugar), Sea Salt, Yuzu Nama Ponzu Vinegar, Aged Full-Bodied Soy Sauce, and Dashi Hatcho Miso (dark red miso).
In addition to 60 senbei, this gift set comes with two dips perfect for pairing to explore new flavor combinations! First, a Red Cheddar Cheese and Iburigakko dip, which is a blend of several types of cheddar mixed with chopped iburigakko (pickled smoked daikon) for a smokey deep taste with a crisp texture. Next, a Rice Koji An Butter, which is a lightly grainy buttery spread that boasts the gentle sweetness of anko (red bean paste) and koji (a cultured rice found in many Japanese seasonings and cuisines). This is the perfect gift for the foodie or gastronome in your life - especially one interested in authentic Japanese flavors!
