The packets Unagi Pie come in state in English: "a snack for nights".

Here is a description of Unagi Pie from the Hamamatsu website:

Unagi Pie - To satisfy your sweet tooth, try Unagi Pie, cookies made with fresh butter with crushed eel bones, eel extract, or garlic mixed in. It's the most popular souvenir from Hamamatsu.  It is known as a night snack. It doesn't taste like eels so people who cannot eat eels can eat it.
