If you ever spent your childhood in Japan, then you must be familiar with Bisco(ビスコ)! if someone says… “I spent my childhood in Japan but never had them” … then they are lying. YOU MUST HAD THEM WITHOUT NOTICING! yes, it’s THAT famous.  Kinda like Japanese version of Oreo but healthier. Bisco is a wheat germ crackers with yogurt cream. In 1933,  Glico started selling Bisco making this year as their 80th anniversary!  The well-known red package with a boy illustrated is a kid’s favorite snack.
