So the good thing about living in Japan is how easy it is to eat healthily, and maintain a balanced and nutritious diet. What with all the rice, fish and vegetables, it's almost as easy to cover all the important food groups as it is to slip on the ice and fall on your ass here in Sapporo. Just take a look at what I found when I cleared out my one, tiny kitchen cupboard:
Chocolate covered coffee beans
Royce Creamy Milk Chocolate Bar
Sparx Magic Colour Changing Popping Candy
Bag of Watagashi (four individually bagged portions of candy floss)
Two small bags of Doctor Who marshmallows
Boiled Strawberry Lollipop
Peanuts Christmas Hot Chocolate Sachet
Mike Popcorn (actually the best bagged popcorn in the world)
Nesquik Magic Straws
Two bottles of Reese's Peanut Butter Ice Cream Topping
Glico hard toffees
...and an unusually detailed chocolate model of a chimpanzee.
What? There was some rice and some instant cup noodles in there too.
