History of Japanese Snack
Originally, in the Edo Period, Dagashi (old Japanese confectionery) was made with grains and thick malt syrup, eaten as a snack by ordinary people, and called "ichimon gashi" (one coin confectionery) because of its low price. In some local domains, when stored 'hoshi ii' (dried boiled rice) was disposed of, it was used to make dagashi, which soon became established as traditional local food and which is still sold today. In particular, Sendai Domain, Aizu Domain, Shonai Domain, and Nanbu Domain were well known for this. Dagashi was named to mark the contrast with "jogashi", which were snacks of a higher quality, and in the Kansai area dagashi are also called "zatsugashi" (miscellaneous confectionery). In those days the ingredients for dagashi were limited and the use of expensive refined sugar was prohibited. The phrase 'the sweetness of dried persimmons' is associated with traditional dagashi and it is considered to be reflective of the period. Most of the Japanese snack sold today can trace their origins back to the Meiji Period but many of them were developed after the Second World War; there are many kinds, which are made to be fun to choose and not to bore kids and even adults. Some of them contain a chance to win a small gift, and this is one of the reasons they are popular among kids.
