I found the most delightfully Japanese product at the NY Restaurant Show: Hello Kitty Nori Chips (made with the approval of Sanrio). In college, I would buy the large packets of nori to eat as a snack. They would soon get stale and end up in the trash.
These nori sheets are cut up into bite size morsels and are packed into the most delightful Hello Kitty tin that promises to keep them fresh. On the mouth, you will get a perfect crunch, just enough salt (one tin has 6% of your daily sodium intake – not bad at all) and the combination of the nori/brown rice flavors work quite well on the tongue. Best part, the whole tin contains a mere 21 calories. The ingredients listed on the package are dried nori, sprouted brown rice, sugar, dextrin, salt, soy sauce, sweetsake, pepper, kelp, seasoning (which was misspelled on the label) and stabilizer. If you find these, I recommend you pick up a bunch because I finished the whole tin in one sitting. I hope these arrive at my local supermarket asap. I only tried brown rice but they also make sesame, wasabi and sour plum flavors.
These are manufactured by Yamamoto-Noriten Company in Japan.
