Haiku Poem – 柿の種ピーナッツ

Kaki peanuts
milk tea’s perfect partner
can’t stop eating

(Jim Woodhull)
ティータイム やめられません かき の たね

かんしょく は かきピーナッツ とまらない

When I moved to Japan, one of the first things I did was to go to the convenience stores and try different drinks and snacks that looked very good to me. I never had anything that I did not like but from the very first time I tried Kaki pi, kaki peanuts, they became my favorite snack! I can’t stop eating them and what often happens is that I eat them until I get a stomach ache! There are also lots of different types of juices and drinks but my favorite is milk tea! The two go together perfectly! For me, my perfect snack when watching TV or reading is Kaki peanuts and milk tea! When I am finished with work and go back home I will often have that as a snack before dinner, which makes my wife mad as it fills me up and then I can’t eat!
