Perhaps one of Japan’s most trademark snacks, Koala’s March (コアラのマーチ) cookies are the next best thing to eating an actual chocolate filled koala. If you have ever been in Japan for more than an hour, you would have soon figured out that this country is crazy for koalas. And so, like everything you love, it only gets better in cookie form.
The treats are made by Lotte, a Japanese company founded by a Korean in 1948, which is the biggest candy company in Japan and Korea. Although foreign markets only get the tip of the iceberg when it comes the variety of injected flavor goodness, on this side of the sea we get to partake in exotic flavors such as: Roast Almond, Cheesecake, Cafe Latte, and the ever so rare Pineapple.
Not only do the bite-sized cookies meet all of your wildest delectable needs, but each one pictures an illustration of a koala doing stuff from surfing to eating cookies themselves! And in case you needed to stock up your bunker for the next apocalypse, Lotte has you covered with limited quantity runs of Emergency Koala’s March cookies that have a shelf life of five years. Need I say more?
In case you haven’t heard, our local Red Ranger can’t get enough of these snacks and recently had world record attempt in eating them on our first AxiomTV episode [ link ]
