Hi peeps. My friend and I dropped by one of the Japanese grocery stores here, and we were a bit overwhelmed by the number of furikake choices. What would you say is your favorite flavor? We were scared to just pick one off the shelf. ;)

I've been meaning to go to the store and buy some. I'm glad you posted this cause I didn't even realize there were different flavors!

I only found out there were different flavors when we went to the store and there was a whole shelf of them!

I always get:
nori fumi furikake (, sugar, salt, sesame seeds
yasai fumi furikake ( seeds, carrot, spinach, pumpkin, celery, potato starch, sugar, salt, and nori

Those sound really good! I'll check the stores if they have those kinds. Thanks!

I get the vegie ones (yasai) with red bits (pimon) in it. I steer clear of anything fishy or meaty.

Interesting... I'll keep those in mind too, thanks!

"Fumi" is Japanese for flavor or taste.

I picked up a sampler packet from when I was ordering other things.

I pretty much like it all, though spouse is going to go with non-nori mixes.

I bought a little tub of taberu togarashi because it had a little red chili pepper on it. It tastes really good, though I haven't had a chance to use it yet.

Oh thanks for the info, peeps. My friend tried some salmon furikake but she said it was too fishy for her. I think I'm going with the veggie/spicy stuff for now before I try anything with meat or fish.

well i bought a few to go with whatever i feel like going with :) mine has pretty much everything: salmon, bonito flakes, nori, black sesame, salt and pepper and i don't know what else - that's a little fishy btw.

the other one was nori tama mix...

my boyfriend prefers just the black sesame, salt and pepper + nori ones because the taste isn't too overwhelming then.... ^_^

You can buy assorted packs of individually packed furikake for about $4 in most asian markets. I would recommend trying one of those if you've never tried furikake before.

I like Mishima yukari furikake best.
