Japanese Snack Food Review: Tomato Pretz

I really need to pay more attention to what’s popping up on my screen saver when I take these pics; it seems like we have Godzilla Hermit Crab looking over things again.

Of course, this is assuming you are OK with the lack of cheeseness but if you aren’t, take a look at Pizza Pretz where you can get your cheesy fix.
