Garigari Pop



"Gari gari" is a sound effect meaning "crunch crunch".  Garigari-kun is the mascot for a line of ice bars and candies from Akagi Nyugyo.  The main bars are like frozen juice, rather than ice cream, and go for about 65 yen at conbini.  They're cheap, so I decided to get one advertising Captain Tsubasa.  It's part of their "richi" (rich flavor) line, so it's actually 120 yen.  Kind of like a watered down chocolate pudding pop. Japan still has the popsicles where if something is printed on the stick you win prizes like free Tsubasa t-shirts.  Naturally I got "hazure" (you lose).
