Once again, another snack that I've been eating before moving to Japan. The great part about this yummy chocolate wafer snack is that it comes with a shiny square collectible sticker! You may have seen this original snack Bikkuriman (Surprise Man) at your grocery market, but what caught my attention was the collaborations this snack has with other animes. I've seen collabs from One Piece, Dragon Ball, Attack on Titan, Star Wars, and Hatsune Miku.
I recently saw a Pokemon collab. I'm not too sure if this is the same Lotte Bikkuriman, however it is a chocolate wafer, with a shiny sticker (seal) inside.
Since Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee came out, it appears that there are many snack collaborations with these famous characters.
Inside the wafer is filled with chocolate. I think the original Bikkuriman wafer also has nuts in it. To me, the snack is so-so. I'm not sure if I would buy it if it didn't come with the surprise sticker.
This is the holographic sticker I got in this package. I'm so far behind in Pokemon, so I have no idea who this is. I was hoping to get a Pikachu or Eevee sticker, but I guess that's what makes you continue to buy more of these snacks!
Collecting the stickers can add up for sure, if you don't want to waste on eating all these wafers, I saw second hand stores such as Book Off and Animate sell packs of stickers as well (if you can find them).
I believe there is an actual Bikkuriman anime, however, I have not watched it which is why I haven't bought the original Bikkuriman wafers. I really only look forward to more collabs they come out with (hoping for more One Piece).
