I found another regional flavored Jagariko! This time it is Kyushu Shoyu.
The first time I heard, or tried Kyushu shoyu (soy sauce) is from the kaiten sushi chain restaurant, Hamazushi. At this sushi restaurant, they have different shoyus you can use from different regions of Japan. I did not know there were different types of shoyu (besides less sodium LOL). I remember trying the Kyushu shoyu and really liking it for the light sweetness. This shoyu is sweeter and a little more thicker in syrup texture than your standard shoyu of Tokyo "koikuchi" which is darker and saltier. I do prefer that when eating sushi or sashimi, however I think the sweeter shoyu may taste better with other cooked dishes.
Once again these barcode art work is so adorable and creative.
When opening the package, the potato sticks immediately smelled like sweet shoyu. It wasn't too sweet unlike the Hokkaido Zangi Jagariko I tried earlier. The color of the sticks were closer to little tan-golden French fries. What I must say is that this has to be the hands down best Jagariko flavor I have had so far! The taste of these were lightly sweetened, not too powerful, which makes it easy to eat a lot of it (comparing to the Zangi flavor when I needed to constantly drink water). I definitely will stock up on this flavor, since I am not sure if this regional flavor is for a limited time only.
