  • [ – ] BrianAiya reply I don't get what's so interesting about watching people eat xP no wonder mukbang is so popular! I don't know if you thought about this for your channel, but secretly i want my channel to be big so that companies can send me free snacks and sweets for free for me to try ;P hahaha I like how you describe the flavors. You didn't ask for this but a feedback from me for this series: I would like maybe if you could sit closer to the camera and when you open the packet to show us a closeup of the snack. I like how you describe but i would like to see a close up of the texture and shape of it. Maybe when you bite you can show us a cross section if there is something interesting to show or heck, even the Package looks interesting to show. Maybe you can show the kanji and show how to read it or to point out some funny drawings in the package. Just a suggestion.
    • theoldsparrow parent reply I used to be in sales and the school of thought with my approach is that you have to believe in the benefits of the product to the point of it being your personal recommendation and so you're consulting based on what you think is right for the person you are presenting to. If I don't think there's a pleasing outcome to my best friend or my mom I wouldn't recommend it and that's what makes it different from the hammer home relentless type of sales I think most people are negatively familiar with. Your particular criticism is always welcome. The ideas that you selflessly put in the comments before has always paid off and I think you have a director's eye when it comes to videos. I'll make sure to give a better spectator's view of the snacks in future videos to add that visual appeal which is the main advantage that the video format has. I've tried to do the visual show but it's been a second thought to the description of what can't be captured on video like taste and mouthfeel. I'll try ...moreto make that more pertinent in the future. Most kanji I am either clueless about because of the way you have to memorize them or I might know a radical, symbols that make up the whole kanji usually comprised of simple other kanji, but most likely don't have any correspondence with the meaning. One of the reasons to do these foreign snack videos is for me to practice or learn kanji in a natural way. It's practice for the inevitable vacation I want to take to Japan and be able to pick out my favorite snacks at a コンビニエンスストア or 24/7 convenience store. A simple goal but before I started learning Japanese an insurmountable one. To make clear I'm still very much a beginner in Japanese. I will try to make the packages more visible before I open them for the audience that may know how to read the kanji though or for those that know enough ways to look up the radicals to parse the kanji together from its parts. Thank you again for the constructive criticism. It really does help, man. :D
  • theoldsparrow reply The shirt I am wearing in this video is in support of @phantom_films . Check out his channel. :D
  • [ – ] VidmeFunDiy reply nice beard style
  • [ – ] MFKraven reply thick tortilla soy sauce? dude sign me up!!!! love love love these Tokyo Treat box videos. keep em coming pleaase ive had some litchi soda before but i remember it tasting good, your facial expression was the best for that though haha
    • theoldsparrow parent reply That snack was especially unique and I really enjoy how different it was. Thank you. I've really like doing these types of videos not just because I can pig out. :D Also it's the type of video I can improve on and get better about making. I like being able to grow as a creator. That was my first experience with litchi and I'm not sure if it's supposed to be salty like that. Yeah, it was horrible. lol. I'll be sure to be on the look out for litchi soda or even the berries themselves for a second opinion.
  • [ – ] RetroBit reply I have to stop watching your Japan Crate unboxing so close to dinner time. I am dying to get my hands on some of those goods right now. I'm always down with anything caramel corn tasting or anything melon flavoured! Have you tried Umeboshi before?
    • [ – ] theoldsparrow parent reply That's typically why I run out in a few days and ending buying more snacks midway through the month. :D Umeboshi is something I've always wanted to try especially in an onigiri. They don't really have those in Atlanta at least not in a convenient supermarket. I completed a taste goal a couple of months back due to Tokyo Treat which was red bean paste in a square jelly. It made me want to try freshly baked taiyaki even more.
      • RetroBit parent reply Niiice. I live about 20miles from a T&T Super Market which sells mostly imported foods from "the orient?". So I can buy Japanese goods locally. The first time I had Red Bean paste I found it off putting (I mean, sweet beans, sounds kind of weird when you hear about it), but now it's my 2nd favorite flavour of sweets. You will love Taiyaki, I'm willing to put money on that. Umeboshi is REALLY strange -not so great by itself, but w/ rice it's actually really pleasant. :-)
  • [ – ] SamEarl13 reply There were a whole load of interesting ones this time, interesting that you mentioned sugar at some point as I've heard Japanese people usually find american sweets too sugary.
    • theoldsparrow parent reply I was actually saying this to a friend of mine the other day. Americans like really loud food. When it's sweet, it's SWEET. When it's spicy, it's SPICY. When it's bitter, it's BITTER. Even when we combine the flavors together it's the most of those flavors we can get. Subtle flavors tend to be an after taste or contrasting flavor like with another favorite loud food of mine BBQ sauce with it's sweet or vinegary and the spicy usually aftereffect flavor.
  • [ – ] TheBrewMonks reply Another great box! Jealous! =)
    • theoldsparrow parent reply I can definitely recommend Tokyo Treat to my friends and family. It's full of mostly good stuff and even if it's not good it's an interesting experience. Also I don't promote the product with any benefit to myself. It's purely my unbiased reaction of a product I enjoy.
  • [ – ] AmandaFood reply The peach tea sherbet one sounds good. Well, everything in the box sounds good to me :D The thick tortilla one that tastes like soy sauce sounds interesting. I love lychee fruit! Niice shirt!
    • theoldsparrow parent reply It definitely had it's highlights. That tart watermelon caramel corn snack may be my favorite one just with how quickly it hits with the sourness. I'm a big fan of sour. I've never had lychee fruit so I hope it tastes better than that drink. It was really salty. :x Thank you. :D
