Spaghetti Kewpie

In Japan a really popular brand of spaghetti sauces is Kewpie brand. They have many types of different flavours. I really love the cod egg flavor sauce. The other day we bought some.

It came with a free strap for a cell phone.

You can see it’s a little Kewpie and he’s bundled up in a tarako, which is what the cod eggs look like before they’re all broken up.

Unfortunately I didn’t get the one that has a single tear as shown to the side on the package above. I don’t know why he’s crying, but it’s really funny looking. Last year there was a really popular commercial for Kewpie Tarako, you can see a couple below. The song was a really big hit in Japan and actually made it high in the singles charts
