Umaibo and its many flavors

Umaibō  (うまい棒) or "delicious stick" is a small, puffed corn snack produced by Riska and sold by Yaokin. There are many flavors available and it has a suggested retail price of 10 yen. Since it has a small profit, the price can change without prior notice. The mascot of the snack is Umaemon, whose name is a pun of Doraemon, another popular animated character.

It is the first featured dagashi of the series as seen in Chapter 2 of the manga and Episode 1 of the anime where Hotaru introduced it to Kokonotsu to know if he is worthy of being her rival and told him about the various flavors available. She also challenged him to make the best mix of Umaibō possible to satisfy her taste.

Kokonotsu tried to combine them and used cheese and takoyaki flavors but Hotaru said that it lacks a punch. When he suggested to grill them, she starts to drool
