Mr. Carl Rosa, our founder, visits numerous Asian Food Markets for supplies all the time. Since he travels throughout the USA teaching Japanese culinary classes, he has absorbed a phenomenal amount of experience when checking costs and selling strategies of many supermarkets (and not just Asian markets). This video provides a glimpse into Carl's experience. We hope it helps you!
Many Japan lovers know that Kit Kats are a very big deal in Japan. In fact, Japan supports and provides more than 308 flavors throughout Japan. However, it was just unveiled that Nestle Japan has elevated the interest in Kit Kats to a new level. Now, Nestlé Japan is overhauling five of its larger-sized KitKat products in September, swapping out their glossy plastic for a matte paper variation, though it's unclear if the new KitKats will adopt the same technique that Nestlé developed for what it claims to be the world's first recyclable paper candy wrapper.
The brand is even advocating a second use for the redesigned packaging by urging customers to turn the bags into paper cranes, so you'll not only be able to indulge in a sweet treat but also de-stress with a sweet new hobby.
Our founder, Mr. Carl Rosa, posing with a rare Japanese Black Watermelon named a 'Densuke'. These watermelons fetch a hefty price - from $200 to $6,000. It was a gift from Japanese film director Aoki Watanabe when Carl visited during a project in Farmington, New Mexico. These delicacies are known throughout Japan but rarely seen.
