1. Oden

What’s a visit to Family Mart without getting their oden, amirite? Savour the flavourful broth of a FamilyMart classic. You can’t go wrong with the classic or tom yam flavour — both are delicious! List of oden choices: Udon, shabu noodle, atjisuke tamago, daikon (radish), corn, mini snow crab cake, seafood tofu fish cake, crab fish cake, veggie fish cake, king crab chunk, Korean odeng fish cake, lobster ball, chicken ball, white fish ball, fried fish ball, fish cake slice. So many choices! The atjisuke tamago (marinated soft-boiled egg) won’t be found in the oden cooker since it’s stored separately, so don’t be afraid to ask for it! Pssst, you can also add on noodles to complete your meal.

2. Onigiri

These classic Japanese rice ball snacks, stuffed with hidden treasures inside are a fan favourite. A quintessential Japanese rice snack, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to onigiri in FamilyMart. From the classic favourites like tuna mayo, salmon, and ebiko, you can also find a myriad of other flavours. There’s usually limited edition onigiri every few months too, so keep a lookout during your next Family Mart visit!

3. Frappe

FamilyMart takes its sofuto (soft-serve ice cream) frappe to a whole new level. The frappe is smooth and creamy and made from 100% creamy fresh milk. The signature flavour Matcha and Belgian Dark Chocolate are a must-try! To get your instant frappe drink, get your Cookie Frappe base from the freezer. Bring it to the counter and choose your flavour of choice (milk, coffee, or chocolate). Once the hot liquid has been added in, you’ve got your frappe without needing a blender!

4. Soft serve ice cream

Sometimes only ice cream can complete your day. And there’s just nothing like indulging in an extra creamy and premium soft-serve ice cream like the one from FamilyMart! Creamy and indulgent, the sofuto in FamilyMart is easily one of the most famous treats you have to try! While you can find the Matcha flavour all year round, they’ve been knowns to release seasonal flavours from time to time. In the past, there have been unique flavours like sea salt, coconut, cheese, melon, sweet potato and more.

5. Dessert sandwiches

While dessert sandwiches may sound strange or unfamiliar, don’t let them deter you from trying them out. So, get yourself a sando, a Japanese dessert sandwich filled with fruit, cream and various other toppings. Trust us, you won’t regret trying them!

6. Hanjuku cheesecake

Getting a whole cheesecake may be too much if you’re eating alone, but you can still enjoy the treat with the Hanjuku Cheese from FamilyMart. This half-baked Japanese-style cheesecake has a rich and creamy cheese centre. Super yummy!

7. Bento box

With bento boxes available in FamilyMart, it means there’s always a meal ready to go for you at any time. Available in various selections of rice and noodle boxes, simply get the FamilyMart staff to heat it up for you.

8. Drinks

In need of a caffeine kick? Get your freshly-brewed coffee from FamilyMart whether cold or hot. According to them, they use a speciality blend of 100% Arabica coffee beans from Ethiopia, Peru, Brazil and Uganda! For non-coffee drinkers, you can get the Matcha Latte or Chocolate drink. The match lemonade is also a must-try! So refreshing!

These are our must-tries when visiting Family Mart. So now you know what to get during your next trip to this famous convenience store!
