But then, I guess our snacks don't really need to make sense.
But I do have to wonder, if we as American Otaku only really like somethings because they come from Japan. I mean, seriously... would we really like Pocky or Ramune if we didn't see it in an anime, or know that it came from our favorite land?
Pocky is just a sweet animal cracker cookie stick with chocolate frosting. And Ramune is fruit soda. Not really all that great when you think about it, but hot damn, it's from Japan, and that makes it what... better?
I'm looking at this bag of Doritoes, and you know what... I bet if I ordered me a case of these nut busters, they'd taste just like any plain old bag of Doritoes I could find in the grocery aisle at Wal-Mart.
Now, I'm not saying that there isn't more variety for somethings in Japan. In fact they have a knack for wanting those huge selling flavors of the month, and moving on; whereas we here in the States like to have a flavor we all like, and that lasts forever.
See, this is exactly the sort of weird shit i'm talking about... and what's with that Mickey Mouse crap?
Nevertheless, because this stuff isn't so commonplace to us, is most likely the reason we are all so attracted to it. Guess it was meant to be.
