OKAZU Sample Squares

OKAZU Sample Squares
Anyone who’s seen us at events knows that we use Shreddies cereal to sample our OKAZU chili miso condiments. It’s always funny when people are realizing that they are eating cereal as they try OKAZU for the first time. The little woven squares work perfectly for sampling our products. When we had an open box of Shreddies kicking around after our last event, we decided to snackify them. We call them OKAZU sample bars.
