This snack’s name literally means “Flower Dolls” in reference to the cute doll design on the packaging that each has different flowers on the dress. Kokeshi are traditional Japanese wooden dolls. The head and body are usually carved from a single piece of wood, and the face, hair, and clothes are all painted on. These little cracker morsels are designed with a peanut head and yummy soy sauce-flavored body. Sometimes something simple yet well-executed like this snack can be just as delicious as fancy flavors.
