Earn tasty Stella Stars with these Spy x Family snacks

The manga series Spy x Family, written and illustrated by Tatsuya Endo, is having its moment in the limelight as its popularity, buoyed by its currently-airing anime adaptation, continues to rise and gain fans both in Japan and abroad.

Naturally, the series has already produced a fair share of associated merchandise and several brands have been eager to collaborate with the franchise.

On May 16th, Kuriyama Beika Co., Ltd., a Japanese snack manufacturer primarily known for making rice crackers under the brand Befco, released a new lineup of their popular 小さな星たべよ chiisana hoshi tabeyo (lit., "let's eat little stars") star-shaped rice crackers in collaboration with Spy x Family

The snack comes in two different package designs, one showing Loid and Yor in their "professional" mode and Anya in her school uniform, while the other one shows the three characters in everyday clothes.

Of course, as fans of the series know, "stars" have an important role in the story since Anya needs to earn Stella Stars to befriend Damian and help her adopted father execute his spy mission.

The packaging says: "Stella Stars have become Chiisana Hoshi Tabeyo snacks!"

This special Spy x Family version of the snack adds custard flavor to the lightly salty base. (No, they're not peanut flavor, although Anya loves peanuts).

The snacks are light, airy, and crunchy and you'll find it hard to put them down. If only earning Stella Stars was just as easy as eating them!

There is a total of 11 different designs featuring Loid, Yor and Anya in chibi versions. As you can see, the packages we bought had "spy mode" Loid and Anya with a Stella Star.
