List Rules Vote for the craziest snack!

This is a list of the craziest Japanese snack foods. The Japanese have a pretty amazing imagination when it comes to their snacks. (They put our cronuts to shame.) Here's a list of all kinds of snack foods you can only find in Japan. These crazy Japanese snacks include make-your-own sushi candy, wasp crackers and (the very weird) diet water. The Japanese are also years ahead of us in terms of Doritos creation technology. Seriously, some of these are so crazy they put the vaguely racist monkey brain dinner scene in Temple of Doom look like a trip to the Olive Garden. 

Up vote for what you think are the craziest Japanese snack foods.
