Karaage is one of Japan's most beloved fried snack and bar foods, but you'll find different incarnations of it around the country--such as Final Fantasy and even idol sweat flavored.

Regardless of what type you go for, as popular as karaage is, it has a reputation for being up there in calories. Japanese snack maker Koikeya however, who is known mostly for their potato chips, has released a low-calorie and high protein guilt-free alternative called "Karaage without sin."

The light meal actually went on sale for a limited time in March, but is being expanded to a nationwide releases due to popularity. "Karaage without sin" is a soy protein based snack, but deep fried in a special sauce by Koikeya to reproduce both the crispy texture and juiciness of karaage.

Intended as an alternative for karaage lovers with restrictive diets (and those who just want to eat a lot of karaage), each bag clocks in at a total of 125 calories.
