A Single Pack of Wafers
Huh? Wafers? In Japan, you can still find lots of non-sport cards and stickers packaged with food. A few sports licenses also exist (Calbee does baseball and soccer most notably). I haven't posted in quite a while so I thought I'd share a snack I bought after lunch today.
Miku Hatsune is a vocaloid, or digital singer. You can find her stuff everywhere. I've never really heard anything she (it?) has done but I see the character everywhere and I have ended up with a couple goodies.
The product is made by Lotte, a well known candy (mostly chocolate) company from Korea, which also owns a couple baseball teams (Chiba Lotte Marines here and a team in South Korea) and a chain of fast food burger restaurants (Lotteria). The wafer is decent, but the sticker beneath is what I'm after for this post.
The fronts are holographic. There's only one sticker per pal with 14 in the set. I got Meiko Sakine. I have no idea who that is.
The backs describe the character. This is sticker number 8, and there is some kind of game through the QR code.
I certainly won't bother with a whole set, but it's another cool oddball to add to my collection!
