The relationship between Japanese girls and food seems to be an eternal conflict between self-imposed rules and overweening passion.

A recent online poll about conbini snacks showed what kind of food leads Japanese girls into little guilty pleasures.

Here's the Japanese Girls' favorite Top 10 conbini snacks!

1位 ドーナツ (Donuts) 👑

Surprisingly, the Donut is the king of the conbini! Coming in different flavours and textures it has a strong visual impact on youngsters. 🍩 🍩

2位 コロッケ (Croquettes)

Second place is Croquettes, with fried mashed potato as main ingredient. Everything's better when fried! 🤤

3位 肉まん (Nikuman)

Nikuman is the first of the 〜man in the list. "Man" is the Japanese name for the Chinese baozi, a snack made from flour dough and filled with whatever you want. The niku (meat) version is the most popular. 🍖

4位 ピザまん (Pizaman)

Same as Nikuman, but filled with mozzarella cheese and tomato, pizza style. 🍕
5位 チキン(ファミチキ、Lチキなど)(Chicken)

The chicken served as street food in the conbini is usually a small chicken steak with some spices on. Simple and delicious! 🍗

6位 唐揚げ(からあげクンなど) (Karaage)

Karaage is the Japanese fried chicken. Usually in the same size as nuggets, it's served hot. Super hot. Lava hot. 🔥

7位 あんまん (Anman)

The only sweet "man" of the list. "An" is the contraction of Anko, the sweet adzuki bean paste. 🍡

9位 アメリカンドッグ (Hot Dog)

'Murica!!! (the hot dog is called American dog in Japan…) 🌭

10位 ポテトフライ (Fried Potato)

When it comes to fried potato, Fast Food chains are still preferred by Japanese, but some of them stay true to their favorite conbini! 🍟

Except for the first place, where the donuts rule, is it clear that Japanese girls have an overall preference for salty snacks.
