A few months ago, I decided to subscribe to Candy Japan. Candy Japan is a subscription service which provides a random collection of candy from Japan twice a month. It costs $25USD/month, which is about £15GBP in the Queen's money.
Most recently, I got 4 things.
- CalorieMate (カロリーメイト). Appears to be some sort of chocolate flavoured energy snack / meal supplement. “Naturally suited for people on-the-go who need an easy source of energy and nutirtion-at breakfast, work, sports, study, or any other busy time”.
- Wakuwaku zukan gummies (わくわくずかんグミ). The name means something like exciting picture book gummies. The gummies are apple and grape flavoured, and are in the shape of various stages of a frogs life cycle! On the back there's the name of each frog stage. とまご(Egg) > オタマジャクシ(Tadpole) > カエル(Frog).
- Yakisoba mayonaise sauce flavour? snacks (焼そば). They look like a pretzel flavoured snack, or maybe something similar to something in a balti mix. There also appears to be some mention of squid flavouring too. I think it says イカ粉練りこみ, but it's quite hard to read such small kanji to my untrained eyes.
- Finally I got Soft Ramune Balls (ソフトラムネボール). They're kinda weird fizzy sweets, with a taffy like part too. I really like the packaging on this, it looks really funky.
All this from half of a £15/month subscription. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me!
