Products That Didn't Make the Cut

And why they didn't quite make it.

Not Bad, but Not Amazing

Not Bad, but Not Amazing

We didn't have any particular issues with these rice crackers, but we weren't blown away by them either. Kameda Seika's Seaweed-wrapped Rice Crackers are a good snack to pair with tea, but we were left wanting something more when we tested them.


Kameda Seika's Soft Salad Rice Crackers have been popular for ages, but we think their grainy texture makes them taste a bit cheap despite their decent flavoring. Family Mart's Twice-grilled Soy Sauce Rice Crackers gave us a similar impression, though more on the hard side than the grainy side.


We didn't find anything particularly special about Aeon Top Value's Soft Rice Crackers (Salt), but their mild flavoring and nice crisp would make them great for those watching their sodium intake.

Not Made for Everyone

Not Made for Everyone

We think the best rice crackers are suited for anyone's taste, but Muji's Black Pepper Rice Crackers had a distinct spicy kick that wouldn't be suited for those with sensitive tongues or for kids; at least they go great with alcohol. We also thought Bourbon's Cheese Okaki would go great with beer or wine, but the processed cheese flavor may put some off.


In terms of flavor, we thought Iwatsuka Seika's Niigata Moist Rice Crackers had a sweet amazake flavor better suited for adults, and Kingodo's Olive Oil and Salt Rice Crackers (Herb and Vinegar) had a flavor that was a bit too Western for those looking for an authentic Japanese rice cracker experience.


Those looking for a squishy mochi-like texture will like Iwatsuka Seika's Niigata Moist Okaki, while those looking for a crunchy okaki texture will enjoy their Inaka no Okaki (Salt). And if you've got a thing for sweet soy sauce? Give Muji's Soy Sauce Fried Rice Crackers a try.

The Flavor Was a Little Off

The Flavor Was a Little Off

Some rice crackers had a flavor that didn't quite sit right with us, but maybe you'll think differently. We thought the sweet and powdery texture of Iwatsuka Seika's Aji Shirabe would satisfy those looking for something sweet but lacking for those seeking salt to balance it out.


If you're looking for something oily, then you may discover a satisfaction our testers failed to find in Higano Seika's Mottainai Honpo Moist Rice Crackers or Kameda Seika's Katabutsu. We should warn you that both are a bit lacking in the flavor department, though.

Not a Great Texture

Not a Great Texture

Arguably, the texture of a good rice cracker matters as much as its taste. Kameda Seika's Teshioya and Eda no Kodawari rice crackers are pretty hard and crunchy, so if you don't have a lot of jaw strength, we wouldn't recommend them.


On the other end of the spectrum, we found Sanko Seika's Niigata Shikomi Light Salt Flavor and Salad Rice Crackers too light and soft to leave an impression. 


We also weren't pleased by the lack of crunch or crisp from Kameda Seika's Magari Rice Crackers, and the unique rice grain-like texture of Kaldi Coffee Farm's Moheji Okoge Rice Crackers fell apart in our mouth.

A Little Too Light on Flavor

A Little Too Light on Flavor

When you see a flavor written on a bag of rice crackers, you expect it to have that flavor. We didn't have much of a black bean impression from Iwatsuka Seika's Black Bean Rice Crackers, but it did have a pleasing texture. As for the classic Nakamura Seika's Cheese Arare, we found barely any of the punch of cheese flavor that we were expecting.

How We Tested the Rice Crackers

How We Tested the Rice Crackers

The way we tested these is pretty simple: we sat our testers down, tried each rice cracker, compared our thoughts and scores, then gave it a final score as to how delicious it was.

How We Tested the Rice Crackers

We found that rice crackers with a softer texture tended to score higher, as well as those with a sweet and salty flavor.

How to Choose Rice Crackers - Buying Guide

Here are five big things to look out for when choosing the best rice cracker for your needs.

Choose a Flavor That You'll Enjoy

Choose a Flavor That You'll Enjoy

This one may seem a bit obvious, but rice crackers are usually found in a set of similar flavors. Decide whether you want a salty soy sauce flavor or a seaweed flavor; or maybe you want something with hints of sesame, herbs, or spice.


Children usually find mild flavors like salt or shrimp easy to eat, so if you're buying for them and you're not sure what to get, those are good options to consider. If you're only shopping for yourself, though, don't be afraid to get a little adventurous!

Decide on a Texture

Are you in the mood for a good crunch, or are you looking for something that will melt in your mouth?

Thick-Grilled and Hard Crackers Have a Strong Crunch

Thick-Grilled and Hard Crackers Have a Strong Crunch

Thick-grilled rice crackers or hard rice crackers will give your jaws a satisfying crunch. It doesn't take much to fill up your stomach, so they'd be good for those on a diet.

Salad and Fried Rice Crackers Are Soft-Textured

Salad and Fried Rice Crackers Are Soft-Textured

Salad-type and fried rice crackers tend to be softer in texture. There are also okaki, which have more of a melty aftertaste than other types of rice crackers.

Moist-Type Crackers are Fluffy and Chewy

Moist-Type Crackers are Fluffy and Chewy

You can also find fluffy and chewy moist-type rice crackers, which are great for those who can't chew food very well. There isn't as much of a flavor or brand variety of this type, but if you're in Japan, you can find at least one type in most stores.

Individual Packaging is Great for Transportation or Longer Shelf Life

Individual Packaging is Great for Transportation or Longer Shelf Life

While those who are trying to cut down on plastic waste may cringe at the thought of individually-packaged rice crackers, those who are constantly on the go or like to space out their rice cracker binges will appreciate them. If storage or portability isn't an issue for you, there are plenty of bag-type snacks as well.

Don't Pass up Broken Rice Crackers if You're on a Budget

Don't Pass up Broken Rice Crackers if You're on a Budget

If you don't really care whether your crackers are in one piece or ten, there are places that sell broken rice crackers at a noticeably cheaper price than whole crackers. They're easier to eat and they're often available in the same popular flavors as whole rice crackers. Keep an eye out for them when you shop!

Pay Attention to the Packaging and Expiration Date for Gifting

Pay Attention to the Packaging and Expiration Date for Gifting

It's not unheard of at all to give rice crackers as a gift in Japan, especially if it comes in an aesthetically pleasing packaging


Box-type or can-type crackers give the impression, "These are not your run-of-the-mill rice crackers," so you should consider these when you want to give a particularly nice present. There are also smaller bags available for individual gifts; browse sites to see what's available.

Pay Attention to the Packaging and Expiration Date for Gifting

And you know there's nothing more embarrassing than giving someone a snack that's already expired or well on its way to going bad, so when you read product descriptions, make sure they keep a fresh stock.

Japanese Cuisine is Full of Delicious Snacks and Ingredients

Japanese Cuisine is Full of Delicious Snacks and Ingredients

Besides rice crackers, there are a ton of amazing and tasty Japanese snacks out there. There are also great ingredients that you can experiment with to make delicious, inspired dishes.

Summary

We rounded up members from our editing department, purchased the 43 most popular Japanese rice crackers, and taste tested them all.


We learned that the best of the best rice crackers have a soft texture as well as a perfect balance of sweet and salty flavors. Ultimately, your own tastes will help you find your perfect rice cracker, but we hope we've given you a good place to start your search.

    Whether you prefer potato, tortilla, or corn, chips are a staple snack in many pantries. When that salty craving hits, it's easy to pop open a bag and crunch away until only crumbs are left. But while chips can be satisfying to eat, they're not the most filling, and their lack of nutrients means they don't always fit in with your diet and fitness goals.
