Is there anything cuter than the packaging for Asian foods?!

Well, maybe mascots are a little cuter. Still, there’s something definitely different about the look of, say, a candy package in the US versus Taiwan.

Taking a walk around Poya, a kind of Taiwanese Walgreens, it becomes apparent just how different packaging is in the East versus the West.

For this post, I’ll just let the photos do the talking. Comment below letting me know your thoughts! Oh and if you’re wondering, Poya is not only cool for its foods items. It also has most anything you would want from a drugstore, making it a convenient stop along adventures across Taiwan. You’ll find them in most large cities across the island.

It’s always a bit surprising to see so much English at a time—slight regrets about not trying this, especially since I love pretzels.
