Team Tofu's Deserted Island Survival Guide!
After years surrounded by delicious snacks,
Team Tofu have had plenty of time to sample, examine and ponder the various applications of the treats we stock here at Tofu Cute. As experts in the snacking field, they know which snack pairs best with each ramune, or which snacks are essential for your Studio Ghibli movie marathon (konpeito, of course)! But could their knowledge serve them in a life-or-death situation?

To find out, I asked Team Tofu this question - ‘If you were stuck on a deserted island and could only bring ONE kind of Tofu Cute snack, what would you bring?’ Who do you think would survive longest: Kiru, Devon, Robb or Laska?
Kiru: If I were stuck on a deserted island and could only bring ONE kind of Tofu Cute snack, I'd bring...

Loonnngggg Lonngggggg Maaaaaannn! Sakeru Gummy Long Peeling Candy - in whichever flavour was available to me!

So as you know, Sakeru Gummy is really long and very flexible... like a rope. This means it's essentially a tool! I am fairly confident that I could build myself an entire campsite using Sakeru Gummy and maybe even a big SOS sign on the floor for passing planes to see. I think you can essentially do anything with a Sakeru Gummy, you can weave it into a bag or a blanket, you can tie it around your feet like shoes, you can swing around like George the Jungle with it. The uses are basically endless, and of course you can eat it!!

As it is an incredible tool, I am fairly sure I could survive for ages with no trouble at all. If you have seen the Long Man advert, you will also know how likeable it makes you! So I could also be sure to bargain my way onto a passing ship easily, or strike up a great trade deal with any passing locals, as they would all be so impressed with my looonngggg snack. While I write this, I am starting to think that this all sounds like a great idea... and I might just go and live on an island in peace and quiet with copious amounts of long man to keep me company.
Devon: If I were stuck on a deserted island and could only bring ONE kind of Tofu Cute snack, I’d bring...

Japanese Kit Kats! (let’s just imagine they’re vegan-friendly ones) When it comes to food, I like to enjoy plenty of variety in tastes and textures - but the one food I never tire of is chocolate! With Kit Kats, I can enjoy my sweet, sweet beloved chocolate and a varied, exciting diet.

When faced with any kind of hardship, the first thing a British person does is make a cup of tea. Thankfully, a Milk Tea Kit Kat will bring peace of mind in chocolate wafer form! For dinner I’d enjoy a Miso Soup Kit Kat, perhaps with a Potato or Vegetable Juice Kit Kit. For dessert I’d be spoilt for choice with Summer Ice Cream, Peach Parfait, Cookies & Cream, Banana Caramel, Pudding… there’s even Japanese Sake for when I’m feeling extra fancy!

As if deliciousness and variety were not enough, there’s one more thing that makes Kit Kats the superior choice! In Japan they’re known as a ‘good luck’ snack, as Kit Kat sounds a lot like the Japanese phrase ‘kitto katsu’ which means ‘You will surely win!’ With the amount of Kit Kats I’ll consume, I will surely win whether I make it off the island or not!
Robb: If I were stuck on a deserted island and could only bring ONE kind of Tofu Cute snack, I’d bring...

Pocari Sweat! Long days in the sun waiting for rescue would be tiring work, and the best way to replace some of that lost energy and keep morale high would be with a tasty beverage in the form of the classic Pocari Sweat. This powerhouse drink is famous in Japan and the world alike for its refreshing citrus taste and promises to replace lost electrolytes and rehydrate the body.

I can imagine having a good supply would lead to a stockpile of empty cans that could be used for all sorts of purposes; you could collect rainwater, construct a knife and other essential tools from breaking down the cans (be careful though those edges will be sharp)! The flattened cans could be used for metal plating that is sure to have a load of survival uses, or even a suit of armour. A would-be attacker is sure to be deterred from messing with a knight of Pocari Sweat.

Of course a fantastic use for Pocari Sweat other than drinking would be to construct a raft from the cans - a steady ship that would no doubt have you sailing the seas to your home with ease! Just don't forget to bring some extra cans along for the journey. But, if you’re truly stuck on the island for the long haul, bar a shipping container of water or a water purification system turning up, I can't imagine anything better than taking a moment out of the horrendous situation you've found yourself in to find a spot beneath the shade of a palm tree to sit under and take a sip of a (hopefully cool, but at the very least lukewarm) can of Pocari Sweat! Delicious.
Laska: If I were stuck on a deserted island and could only bring ONE kind of Tofu Cute snack, I'd bring...

Konpeito! This may sound like an odd choice, but hear me out. Konpeito is a delicious sugary snack, it has a long life and will give you boosts of energy. If you don’t fancy a crunchy snack, you can add it to water to create a sugary drink – choose fruit-flavoured konpeito for extra pizzazz!

You can do more than eat or drink konpeito, you could lay it out on the sandy beaches to prevent predators reaching you, it’d be like walking on Lego! If there are lots of predators, you could also create a slingshot with branches of a coconut tree, imagine a konpeito to the eye – ouch!

Lastly, if you are stuck on a tiny island and happen to come across an animal such as a snake or a boar, you might want to keep it as a pet for company. Try feeding your new pet some Floral Traditional Assorted Konpeito – they’ll want to stick around and keep you company for snacks!
There you have it! I’d hope that all four of them would live long, happy lives on their respective islands - but even if they don’t last that long, at least they’d have had a delicious time! We’d love to hear what snack you’d bring with you to a deserted island, so please feel free to email us your answer! Personally, I'd bring any snack to do with ice cream.
