Popular Mangaka Draw for Caramel Corn Packaging

From left to right, designs by Sakura Momoko, Fujiko Fujio A, Ikeda Riyoko and Tezuka Productions.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the snack "Caramel Corn", the packaging will be adorned by designs by iconic mangaka loved by the entire nation. The limited edition packaging goes on sale from the 14th of March.

"Caramel Corn" underwent a product renewal in 2003 when the packaging took on the design it has today with an outstanding face on it. This time, the original packaging will be used a base upon which Sakura Momoko, Fujiko Fujio A, Ikeda Riyoko and Tezuka Productions will draw the faces they are synonymous with. For example, the Tezuka Productions one features Astro Boy's face.
