Takara Tomy Arts - perfect NATTO mixing machine "Rosanjin Natto Bachi"

Takara Tomy Arts is going to release a Natto mixing machine Rosanjin Natto Bachi on February 6.

Natto - fermented soy beans - is a favorite among Japanese. We usually eat it with rice for breakfast. It's smelly and slimy so most likely people will want to avoid eating it if they have never tried to before. However, if you are adventurous and get hooked on its mysterious flavor and texture, Natto will be irresistible for you.

It's said that the more you mix your Natto before eating it, the better and richer its taste becomes. So, Takara Tomy created a Natto mixing machine for those who really care a lot about their Natto.

After extensive research, Takara Tomy Arts discovered that mixing it exactly 424 times gives an optimal flavor to Natto. The key to this is giving it just the right amount of "neba neba" - this is that sticky, gooey goodness that makes the beans suspend from your chopsticks and makes your lips stick together. They have set the mixing machine to be able to mix it 424 times in only 1.5 minutes to achieve this goal quickly.



Also, Takara Tomy says that through their testing, the best timing to add soy sauce to Natto is when you reach 305 times, so a door for soy sauce insertion is installed on the mixing machine and automatically opens after the mixing hits 305 times.

"Neba neba" have bad Natto again! With the Natto mixing machine Rosanjin Natto Bachi, you will be able to have more enjoyable Natto life.



Price: ¥2,200

Today, Acecook announced that they are going to release the EDGE Onikara Yakisoba (Onikara means literally "Devil-Spicy" meaning insanely-hot fried noodles) on May 12.

I guess that Japanese people generally are not good at spicy food, so dishes called "super-hot" here in Japan might be considered only medium spicy by foreign people. But hopefully Acecook won't disappoint us with its level of the spiciness, and can live up to its Onikara name!

Cold soba noodle is one of the most refreshing dishes to eat during the hot summer in Japan. But it's so good that it may be served too often in the same way and family members will eventually get really bored with it.

So, a famous blogger Miyachan invented a cold soba noodle dish that is cute and attractive to look at. It's a "TOTORO" Tororo Soba - Studio Ghibli's TOTORO-shaped buckwheat soba noodle with tororo (grated gooey Nagaimo yam)!

Original recipe makes 1 serving:

From Ezaki Glico's famous Pocky series, new Pocky Panda will be released on March 11.

Of course, it's not a panda flavored Pocky. It has a cookies & cream flavor and the contrast of the dark cookie and white cream reminds us of the color of pandas.

In addition to the regular package that has a panda design on, there seems to be a rare version of the package with a fluffy panda on it.

Can you tell the panda on the box at the right side is fluffy?
