 The Hokkaido Snacks

We've worked with four local snack makers based in Hokkaido, to bring you a variety of different types of snacks that are native to northern Japan. Very rarely, will you find these snacks outside of Hokkaido (it's hard to find these even in the rest of Japan). 

Shiroi Koibito 白い恋人

shiroi koibito japanese snacks

By far, the most popular cookie from Hokkaido. Shiroi Koibito translates to "White Lover" and it's a simple yet delicious cookie which has white chocolate sandwiched between crispy butter biscuits. Why the name "White Lover"? The story goes that while the snack founder was coming home from a day of skiing, it started to snow and he casually remarked, "it's snowing white lovers." The name has stuck ever since. See our in-depth look of the cookie here.

Yakitoukibi (焼とうきび)

Yakitoukibi is a snack that you can only get from the famous Sapporo Ohdori Park. It's made from locally grown rice and sweet corn. The grilled corn and rice crackers are glazed lightly with soy sauce, giving it an amazing sweet and salty flavor all in one snack.

Kinotoya Milk Cookies (札幌農学校ミルククッキー)

japanese cookies

Made in Hokkaido's prestigious Sapporo Agricultural College, these milk cookies are made with 100% natural and organic milk. The quality of the ingredients really show, as these cookies have won the international Monde Selection award 3 years in a row! See our review of the cookies here.

Sapporo Curry Senbei (札幌カレー)

Have you ever tried Japanese curry? It's very different from Indian curry, but just as tasty and very popular. This curry rice cracker is made in collaboration with a famous curry restaurant in Sapporo, Hokkaido. All of the ingredients and spices are locally sourced and it's full of umami!
