Ninja Diet

One of the perks of living in Japan is everything "ninja". There once was a day when I thought of snack food as salty chips, chocolate bars, and the occasional rogue carrot. But then my son brought home these:

Ninja Food.

To the untrained eye they might be extremely hard gummies. And, well, maybe that's what they are. But that's also what all the modern day ninjas nosh on when they're feeling a little peckish.

No wimpy worms or cutesy Haribo bears here. Look at them stylish ninjas.

And for flavors you get to choose from two.

This one is plum and tuna flavor. I was the only one in the house brave enough to try it. And, yeah, it taste just like plum and tuna, no surprises there. Less like a snack and more like a meal. Willy Wonka eat your heart out.

The second flavor is grape. But not just your average grape. This one is Macho Grape!

I imagine this one tasted mighty fine. Boy Child offered me one after an especially painful dentist visit so I had to decline. When I was healed up and ready to try a little macho grape the pack was empty. *sigh*

I was just farting around on the Internet and found they also have Chick Ninja Food! Honey-lemon flavor.
