Cultural note from the author:
Japan is renowned for their food industry, as Japanese chefs embrace a lifetime commitment to perfecting their craft. They maintain the same integrity and discipline when making snacks. Snacks are not only made for eating but are also made to provide “fun time” for kids. They come in various themes, shapes, types, and sizes. Join me in discovering several popular Japanese snacks by taking the quiz. Special thanks to the major snack companies in Japan, Glico, Lotte, and Meiji, for allowing us to use their wonderful snacks in this book.
