A few of us also got trapped in the Stitch Encounter in 2018. Once the doors closed and we saw the set-up, we knew it was going to be a wasted 10 minutes.

Great report!

^ was it only 10 minutes???

it felt WAY longer. . but that could have been because we were terrified they were gonna come talk to us.

:P

a few more pics I found in my folders - tho not sure which days they are from. . think these might be by Brad Roach, or maybe Erik? Possibly Robb even.

but they are good, so sharing!

was really missing Japan..

and just ended up buying off of Amazon, the 40 pack of "assorted Japanese snacks and candy"

LOL.. hope it's not awful, tho I'm sure it's gonna be a little bag of stuff I could have bought by going to HMart. Prolly for cheaper than the $18 too.

Safer not to go out tho. and I DO like the "mystery box o crap" aspect of it.



still have one more full day at Tokyo Disney complex to post, and hope to get to it in the next week :)

and my box of Japanese snacks/treats showed up - less than a week after ordering! (and yes, they did ship from Japan, the customs tag is attached still).

really pleased with the variety, even tho I'm sure some of them are gonna be not to my liking.

but excited to try them out over the next several weeks.

and a lot of the packaging is absolutely adorable!

^ The bear and Geisha Doll look very nice! :smile: All of it looks great!
Is the Doll a snack or candy bar? Looks so real, I can't tell.

^ I think they are just hard candy balls - the design is all on the plastic wrapper.

hard to tell what's gonna be candy and what's gonna be a savory snack.

but that's the fun of it :)

^ Maybe you should keep a sharpie handy and "check off" which bags
you enjoyed the contents of.... and throw away the others. :wink:

In some of the Asian stores we shop in, there are several snacks we like, but totally forget the name of etc.
So we keep a "Bag of Bags" handy with you guessed it - The Bags in it! Then we just take it along, and point
to what we want, when we find a worker in one of the aisles.

there are only a couple of doubles.

but already have plan that if I like something, to hang on to the packaging, so can see if I can find it at my local H-Mart Asian market :)
