Welcome to the Gone John Show (Canadian) Thanksgiving Special!
Because food is such a big part of every family’s Thanksgiving celebrations, that’s what we’re talking about on this episode.
Joining me are a group of friends – Rhiannon, Chris and Lucas – to talk about food in Japan.
To celebrate Thanksgiving, we got ourselves a bucket of KFC. While we had no trouble going down the street to get the chicken this time, if it was Christmas it’d take a bit more planning. KFC and Christmas is a big deal in Japan!
Burger King is also in the news this week after they unleashed a black-bunned “Halloween Whopper” in North America which looks a lot like the Kuro burger they offer for a limited time in Japan. But it’s causing some problems for people who eat it. (Although Japan’s version doesn’t have the same side effect. We explain why!)
Also on this episode : the strangest and best things we’ve eaten in Japan, vending machine guilty pleasures, and what everyone misses most from North America
