Gari-Gari Kun “Rich Series”

A famous Japanese ice candy

Gari-Gari Kun is one of the most famous Japanese ice candies. They are going to launch a new flavor this spring. Guess what the new flavor is from these package designs…

Spaghetti Napolitan!!

Naporitan or Napolitan (Japanese: ナポリタン) is the name of a pasta dish, which is popular in Japan. The dish consists of spaghetti, tomato ketchup or a tomato-based sauce, onion, button mushrooms, green peppers, sausage, bacon and Tabasco sauce.

Standard ver. of Gari-Gari Kun

By the way, this is the normal Gari-Gari Kun. Gari-Gari Kun’s original flavor is “soda”. “Gari-Gari” is a Japanese onomatopoeia, which expresses the sound we make when we eat something hard, such as ice. “Kun” is a Japanese honorific we use when talking about someone male, especially among friends, or when we call little kids.

Gari-Gari Kun has been around since 1981. The reasons for its popularity are, first, that it’s yummy of course. Secondly, it’s cheaper than other ice candies. Gari-Gari Kun is 62 yen, while other normal ice candies cost around 100 yen. (100 yen is around 1 dollar.)
