I had an email waiting for me when I got home from work today from one of my friends in Japan saying that the food parcel I had sent her had arrived today. I’m always impressed with how quickly mail leaves Australia as I only sent it on Saturday afternoon (today is Wednesday) but the mystery still remains of why anything sent from the east coast of Australia takes a shit load of time a.k.a. 7-10 days to get over here to the west side.
But I digress…
In my food parcel I sent an eclectic collection of things that you can’t easily buy in Japan like creme brulee flavoured timtam biscuits, a tiramisu-flavoured block of chocolate, potato chips in a plastic tube, cheese spread, laksa-flavoured instant ramen, a huge anaconda snake made out of gumi, instant cappuccino mix with a chocolate shaker, macadamia nuts, and a few other things.
A couple of months ago she sent me another food package from Japan jam-packed with all the goodies I love. Being the food-blog-obsessed person that I am, I immediately laid everything out on the floor and took a picture – well, actually several pictures.
Unfortunately I’ve since eaten 99.9% of everything that was in the package, but I still have some delicious memories.
Now here comes the quiz, I’ve numbered 10 of the items in the photo and I want you to guess what they are. For the things that have English on them, you’ll need to explain what the thing is (i.e. just saying ‘that’s a box of Pockys’ isn’t enough – what the hell is a Pocky?).
Here’s a close-up of number four:
You can click on the pics which will take you to my flickr page where you can see bigger versions (as if that helps! I hear the choruses already…lol.)
The person with the most correct answers will be named the know-it-all-god-of-the-internet-quiz and we will all bow down and worship you (now if that isn’t enough reason for you take the time to answer the quiz, I don’t know what is…)
