A while ago, I found this cutie for sale at Welcia, a local Japanese drug store. It's a little caster filled with "furikake", which are tiny, savory sprinkles to put on rice. They are usually made of seaweed, soy sauce, sesame, sugar and salt- but also may be a combination of seaweed and dried egg sprinkles ("noritama"), which seems to be most popular among children.
The "kira kira"-eyed baby seal is labeled as "pink plum-sesame-salt"-mix with tiny pink flower chips.
