Curated by Toronto-based Christopher Butcher, the Oyatsu Break! website does to Japanese snack foods what a food critic does to a restaurant. Fascinating look in a world of bizarre snacks and unusual Kit-Kat food -- above, what looks like pedo-bear ready to chow down on god knows what.
Welcome to Oyatsu Break! A brand new Japanese snack food blog. Maintained by Christopher Butcher and run out of Toronto, Canada, this blog will review Japanese snack foods that Chris has picked up in his travels, that have been imported into Canada, or that folks from Japan were nice enough to send him. Content updates 3 times per week.
