Sakura is Japanese for “cherry blossom.” This crunchy rice cracker is shaped like the beautiful blooms!
Arare is a Japanese rice cracker that comes in many fun shapes and flavors. These perfectly bite-sized snacks are made from glutinous rice and originally flavored with soy sauce, with other popular variations like wasabi and honey glazes. Arare often has pieces of dried seaweed (called nori) sprinkled throughout. Arare is so popular in Hawaii that you can even order it as a topping on popcorn at the movie theaters!
