These crunchy Japanese rice crackers feature a special seafood-inspired twist that makes them stand out from the competition.

These 'Waza No Koda Wari Noko Uni Shoyu' Japanese rice crackers have been flavored using a special sea urchin paste that has been combined with two different types of soy sauce flavors. 'Koikuchi' soy sauce pairs alongside 'Tamari' soy sauce to deliver a salty and savory flavor combination to go alongside the distinctively rich seafood flavor of sea urchin.

These crackers are also made to be extra crunchy and feature an extra thick texture. Although they may be considered odd by some, these urchin-flavored crackers are yet another example of Japan's willingness to experiment with flavors that many in the Western world would never even consider.
