It had been a while since I had made a trip to a Japanese market for candy goods. Yesterday I stopped by one and picked up some things.
Meji Gummy Choco Strawberry Flavor
I hadn't tried these before but have seen them in Japanese markets on plenty of occasions. Whenever I try something new in a Japanese store it really is a risk as I don't really know what I'm buying.
Nabisco Picola Peach Sticks
The store didn't have any green tea Picola which disappointed me. I love the green tea flavored sticks and the green tea is actually a bit sharp tasting. More like traditional green tea than sweetened down flavored green tea items.
Meji Cappuccino Lucky Stick
I'm always up for a good coffee/latte/cappuccino candy treat.
Botan Rice Candy
Rice candy is always a must whenever I stop by a Japanese market. These have been a favorite of mine since childhood and I always get a kick out of being able to eat the wrapper. It melts in your mouth!
I'm always telling people to try Ramune. I guess it's technically a kid's drink (or so I'm told) but it's so much fun! The cap pushes down a marble that makes the drink fizz and the marble is caught in the neck of the bottle.
Ajitsuke Seasoned Nori
Another treat. I had a friend when I was little who used to eat Nori and she got me hooked on it. Turned out she was a bad friend but the Nori has stayed with me all these years!
