Cookies in panda shape
Sakusaku Panda are cookies in a panda shape. “Sakusaku” is one of the Japanese onomatopoeia; it is the sound we make when we bite into something crunchy such as cookies or biscuits.
Green tea flavor version
They have green tea flavor too!
Soft and sweet bread
I have no idea why this bread is named giant panda at all. (Maybe just for adding some fun to the package?) What’s inside of the cute package is soft and sweet bread. Have you ever tried Japanese bread? Normally, we prefer soft one to hard type bread like German bread.
A popular character for promoting a green tea
Panda sensei (sensei means teacher) is a character of Namacha, is a green tea by Kirin. This Panda sensei appears very often on Namacha’s TV commercials and other ads. There was a campaign that if we buy two
bottles of Namacha, one Namacha sensei is offered.
Collaboration with lunch pack
Sakura Panda is a character of one of Japanese department store, Daimaru/Matsuzakaya. Lunch pack is a kind of packaged sandwich which is very popular especially among young people such as students.
Kind of chocolate bar shaped in ice creem
Caplico is a kind of a soft chocolate bar, though its shape is like an ice cream. This panda version is cookie and milk flavor!
As you may know, Pocky is a Japanese snack covered with chocolate. Pocky is now popular worldwide, but the name is sometimes changed in other countries. This Pocky panda is cookie and cream flavor.
You found the difference?
As many Japanese companies do to let us have fun, you can find the different versions of the package!
The second one!
At a cash
Sorry, this is a joke. This is a TV commercial from 2012. However, it’s so sweet of this panda to behave as if he were a real man with bowing to customer and trying to open a plastic bag!!
