New, at Maido is Oshaburi Kombu by Kurakon! Commonly translated as “pacifier kombu”, Oshaburi Kombu is a traditional Japanese snack made from strips of dried and seasoned Japanese kelp. The strips are fairly tough at first, but become softer the longer you suck on them-- sort of like hard candies or caramels. In fact, the word “oshaburi” refers to “the action of sucking on something”, hence its frequent translation as "pacifier". Oshaburi Kombu is seasoned with salt and ume plum juice giving it a sweet, sour and savory flavor that intensifies the longer you keep it in your mouth. Additionally, Oshaburi Kombu is low in calories and high in fiber, making it a fairly healthy, as well as tasty snack. Be sure to grab a pouch on your next trip to Maido for groceries and other essentials!
