The final Tidyman in the Japanese Calbee trilogy is from the Jagabee sub-brand, which are (rather bizzarely) jacket potato flavoured potato sticks!

calbee crisps

Following on from yesterday’s post about Calbee crisps, this character was found on a different flavour of the Japanese potato stick snacks. From what I can gather from Calbee’s Japanese website, today’s and yesterday’s Tidymen are from the ‘jagarico’ range, details (in Japanese) here: http://www.calbee.co.jp/jagarico/products/basicline/index.php?1366648708

Calbee Crisps, Japan

Calbee

The next six posts are from a trip to Tokyo, Japan last year. Although Japan is perhaps better known for its creative barcodes, I did find a few Tidyman examples of note, starting with this one which I found on the side of  a box of Calbee crisps.

This is one of my favourite Tidyman symbols. From a packet of Llama’s Cheesy Baked Bites, it fits in perfectly with the quirky branding. Reassuringly, “no llamas were harmed in the making of these snacks”.

It is interesting to note that the crisps are made by Walkers, although for marketing purposes no Walkers Branding appears on the packaging, advertising or website . However, Tidyman followers will notice that the Red Sky Tidyman has a distinctly Walkers look to it!

New levels of Tidyman inventiveness are reached with this example, taken from a packet of Doritos iD3. The concept of iD3 is interesting, with consumers being invited to guess the mystery flavour of the Doritos, with a chance of winning £20,000. The Tidyman symbol used on the packaging is just as intriguing, with a second man peeking out from behind the Green Dot symbol, which often appears on packaging alongside the Tidyman. The Green Dot symbol’s use in the UK is controversial, but here it is used creatively by the packaging designers to provide a point of interest.
