All about Kyoto Mix (It’s Back!)

ess1456163542224

Our umami tsunami is back in the shop! A cult favorite, Kyoto Mix delivers a sweet and savory blast of seaweed, miso and sesame.

We were inspired to create it after one of our Hawaiian employees told us about the Hawaiian popcorn, Hurricane Mix. Our version is vegan – if you feel like some extra crunch you can add rice crackers just like the Hawaiian version for a snack sensation!
