This is the menu. This is a sort of milkshake with crunchy chocolate wafers. But above all, the most attractive part are the stickers which comes with it when you purchase the shake.

Bikkuriman boom, which became a social problem at that time

In 80’s and 90’s, people went crazy in collecting these stickers, because there were several stickers which were considered as something very rare.

Some people bought big boxes of the Bikkuriman in order to get as many stickers as possible, though the snack itself was thrown away. And some people put up such stickers for auction. These phenomena were considered to be a big social problem at the time.

Bikkuriman Charter

To avoid this social problem, Lotte, the selling company of Bikkuriman, launched the Bikkuriman Charter. It is as follows:

1.  I will never sell or buy stickers.

2. I will enjoy the chocolate when I collect stickers.

3. I will enjoy communicating with friends by giving-and-taking stickers.

10 new sticker designs are available now at Lotteria!

Don’t only enjoy the stickers! You also have the crunchy wafers with chocolate in the milkshake.

Please stay reasonable! (Don’t throw away the milkshake just because you only want the stickers!)

It was so yummy. I got the sticker of  Black Zeus (the name of a character) (^_^) I don’t want to drink the milkshake anymore, but I want to collect more stickers, so maybe I will offer this milkshake to someone. Wow, I’m gonna do the same as I did in the 80’s…
