This set is trial Japanese snack Dagashi Box.You can try if you haven’t eaten those before.While the modern dagashi was developed after World War 2, dagashi has been around since the Edo period (1603-1868), though the region of origin is unknown. “Dagashi”, made from starch or corn, was the commoner equivalent of the more expensive “jōgashi”, which was higher quality and made from white sugar. Modern dagashi experienced its greatest popularity from the 1950s to the early 1980s in Japan when dagashiyas were common and a staple after-school hangout spot for younger students. However, in the early to mid- 1980s, dagashiya stores began to diversify their products or were replaced by convenience stores. As of 2016, dagashi can still be found in the occasional dagashiya or ordered online. Culture expos in Japan (especially for schools) sometimes include dagashi and dagashiya displays.
- Dagashi refers to cheap candies and snack foods. Dagashi are comparable to American penny candy. The word “dagashi” is derived from the Japanese words “da” (“futile” or “negligible”) and “kashi” (snacks).
- The low price and fun packaging is designed to attract children with small allowances, and “dagashi” came to be known as the small candies that children can afford with pocket money.
- Most dagashi are packaged in bright, childish wrapping and sometimes come with a small toy or prize. The toys are often small figurines, and a common prize is a randomized prize that will allow the holder to claim a second free snack. Dagashi used to be sold in stores specializing primarily in dagashi called “dagashiya” .
