Random: Slime Biscuits Celebrate Dragon Quest In Crunchy Style

Japan has quite a few regional delicacies — Tokyo Banana, for example — and it’s traditional to buy beautifully-wrapped boxes of these tasty treats to take home to family and friends as souvenirs.

In Fukuoka, one of these delicacies is Niwaka Senpei, a thin, crunchy biscuit with eyes on it and a little slit for your nose, so you can wear it as a mask — it’s based on the Hakata Niwaka masks from Japanese comedic plays.

The biscuit is 115 years old (well, the company is; the biscuits are presumably freshly-made) and in that time, they’ve collaborated with Hello Kitty, Rilakkuma, and Doraemon, but their newest collaboration with Square Enix is the first time that they’ve actually changed the shape of the biscuit itself.

The biscuits, in the shape of Dragon Quest’s iconic slimes, will be sold in a beautiful slime-themed commemorative box, containing three crackers for ¥756 (£5 / $7).
