Living in Japan we have discovered Asahi Food Balance Up Cream biscuit sandwiches that resemble the flavors of Poptarts in America. I like them so much, I decided to write a post about the different flavors and what I believe they taste like. They come in a package with two separately sealed packages with two small puffed cream filled granola biscuit sandwiches. They are probably 1″ x 2″ x.25″ big. Asahi Food sells just the granola as well, but Japan really seems to like cream puffed foods. Even peanut butter here (aside from a jar of Skippy peanut butter) is actually just really whipped peanut cream, it is kind of gross especially if you have grown to love the dense texture and flavor of peanut butter. Anyways, the Poptart like granola sandwiches are sold in 7 different flavors, I believe. There is a Fruits and Granola, Cream Cheese, Maple Nuts & Granola, Blueberry, Chocolate, Strawberry?, and Mocha flavored biscuit sandwiches.
The Fruits and Granola Japanese sandwich snack tastes like a lemon cream sandwich cookie.
The Cream Cheese flavored Japanese granola cracker puffed creme sandwiches taste like cheese sandwich crackers.
The Japanese Maple Nuts & Granola snack tastes similar to the Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Pop Tarts.
The blueberry creme puffed granola cracker sandwich tastes like a blueberry flavored Poptart, simple as that.
The Chocolate Asahi Food Balance Up Cream granola biscuit sandwiches are similar to double fudge Pop Tarts.
I’m not exactly sure what the flavor of the pink colored cream puff Asahi Foods granola sandwich is, whether it is Strawberry or Raspberry? I just assume Strawberry since it is a very popular flavor in Japan, however, I have not even seen this flavor personally. I really look forward to finding it and trying it, but for now, it is only a picture I found when looking for pictures of the other flavors.
And last, the Mocha flavored biscuit sandwiches. Although I have definitely seen this flavor anywhere Asahi Food Sandwich snacks can be found, but I have yet to try the Mocha flavored snack yet.
