What is Umaibo?

Umaibō is a delicious puffy corn snack stick from Japan. Imagine a giant cylindrical cheeto that comes in savory and sweet flavors! This very popular dagashi (link) has been around since 1979. Each wrapper features Umaemon, its cat mascot, whose name is a pun on the character Doraemon.

What does Umaibo mean?

Umaibō in Japanese is うまい棒. “Umai” translates to delicious and “bo” means stick, therefore it’s a “delicious stick” and we couldn't agree more!
