While octopus balls (also known as takoyaki--たこ焼き) are really popular summer snacks, these giant ones known as Bakudanyaki are sold year-round in shops around Tokyo.  They have a lot of stuff put into them, from the usual octopus, to a piece of baby corn, a bit of sausage and even mushrooms.  You can get lots of different sauces.  Usually I get the "cheese mix" which is a variation on a theme, but this time I decided to try the double mentaiko cheese.  It was delicious.
