Today’s sweet is LOOK Chocolate in purple sweet potato and chestnut.
Based on the package, I thought it would be one big bar with squares you can break off, but it’s not! It’s actually small individual squares of chocolate in a box like bonbons.
First I had to try the purple sweet potato since I personally love the flavor.
So I did. And all I got was chocolate taste.
It was kind of dissapointing
But I moved on and tried the chestnut.
Also, just chocolate.
I was really confused. There was a diffrent colour inside. Why could I only get the chocolate taste and not some of the other flavors?
Then I tried them a diffrent way. I put one in my mouth and let the chocolate melt. This time I got to taste the actual flavor!
Purple sweet potato was yummy! Subtly and sweet but really good!
Surprisingly though, I loved the chestnut. It was nutty (duh) with the kind of roasted flavour like peanuts with a yummy caramel on the top.
The only downside was that you couldn’t get the taste just eating the chocolate pieces. If there was less chocolate and more potato and chestnut it would be way better!
Do you like these flavours?

These cuties are Bourbon Petit Shrimp Crackers! They came in my February Tokyo Treat box and I’ve been looking forward to trying them! The package was a cute pink with a happy little bear on it which was pretty adorable ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ.
Inside there’s these tiny little crackers which made me super excited! They’re so little and cute! I expected them to be bigger but I love the adorably small size! They’re yummy too! To me they taste more like crab cake than shrimp but I really like crab cakes so I think that’s a good thing ( ˊ̱˂˃ˋ̱ ) They’re filling too! I only ate half the package and was totally satisfied (plus now I have some for tomorrow!
I would really recommend these! If you don’t like shrimp, candysan.com offers other flavours (most of which I might have to try)

Someone take my credit card from me! I just love Japanese candy and snacks way to much.

The first picture is from jbox.com. I’ve ordered from them before and I was satisfied with everything.

The second picture is from napajapan.com. This is my first time ordering from them. The prices are high compared to candysan but they are way up to date with new popin cookin kits.

And the last picture is entirely from candysan.com. Some items are repeats because I enjoyed them that much. The only thing is I am missing one item but I am seeing if I can get that item sent to me. We’ll see.

Tonight I tried the Poppin’ Cookin bento set. It’s a DIY candyby Kracie meant to look like a Japanese bento lunch.
As is pretty common with these, there’s a bit of work that goes into it. This kit had seven coloured powders that you mix with water to make the parts, then assembly. It actually took about 15 minutes not including putting together the display that’s assembled from the wrapper (*´∇`*). It was a labor of love though since I really enjoy putting them together.
It turned out pretty cute too (even though it’s not exactly like the picture)
Now the taste. It’s bad. The noodles were my favorite since they were peach, but they had unusual texture that was weird to me. The rice balls were bland and only got taste from the black ‘nori’ which wasn’t enough to make them good. The meatballs were the same, bland. And the broccoli, egg and octopus hot dog all had a good flavour, but they were slimy and weird (the little octopus was cute though)
Still, that being said, I would totally reccomend this kit. The DIY candies aren’t about taste, they’re about the fun of making it yourself and this certainly delivered on that front. It was a joy to put together and even without English instructions I was able to do it. Give it a try if you get the chance!♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪
Have you tried any DIY candy kits? Any requests for future ones?

Kracie Fuwarinka Rose Soft Candy

Rose tea is one of my favorite tea flavor. When I saw this at Candysan online I was pretty much excited to try it out. I like the resealable bag for freshness idea. No more hassle to transfer in a candy container. It also says in the package that the candies are rich in vitamin c. When I open the bag the scent of the fragrant rose just say hi to me. It smell so good. These pretty pastel pink candies has a crunchy outer shell and chewy on the inside. Just imagine eating mentos. It was sweet and you can actually taste the rosy flavor. I did enjoyed eating these. 126 calories per 38g.

I’ve been super into making slime recently so I figured it was time to pull out the slime candy ヽ(´▽`)/
This is called Henshin Slime and I purchased it from Candysan. It’s a candy kit loosely inspired by Neri ame, an old school Japanese candy.
The kit was very easy to put together! You add water with the provided measuring cup then add a yellow powder first, then a blue powder and mix it up! Once the blue powder is mixed in it becomes super thick and stretchy so you can use the popsicle sticks to play with it. It’s actually super fun and I spent a good 10 minutes stretching and pulling the slime candy ( ´∀`)
It was super fun to eat too! The flavour was ramune which is not bad, but the fun part was the texture. It was chewy, almost like melted gummy candy! I thought it would have the same marshmallow texture as nerunerune, but nope! This was so much better!
Honestly this was a super fun kit that I would reccomend to anyone! Hopefully with how popular slime is, this will become more accessible in the states!
Do you like slime?

I got these cute little gummies in a snack pack from candysan! I was really excited to try these because I ADORE pudding.
When I first opened the package I thought “aww, these are so cute!!”
My second thought was “why do these smell fruity?”
The answer is that these actually aren’t pudding flavour at all. They’re actually a fruit flavour, almost fruit punch like rather than a specific fruit. They actually taste kind of like gummy bears which was kind of dissapointing to me. I love gummy bears, but when something is cute and looks like a tiny pudding, I’d rathe have it be pudding flavor. Not bad, just not what I would have wanted -_0_-
Do you think you would like these?

As we get closer and closer to Christmas, I have another treat that personally says Christmas to me
It’s pear hi-chew!
Pear has been a Christmas flavour in my house for a long time now. When I was little I asked Santa for a pear for Christmas just to see what he would do ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Santa delivered and every year since he’s brought me a bag of pears for Christmas. This is why pear really reminds me of the holiday ╰(*´︶`*)╯
I picked up the pear Hi-chew in my most recent Candysan order. These are individually wrapped chewy candies simalar to starbursts but with a little stronger chew. This flavour has a pale green outer layer with a white inside, just like a pear!
The taste was spot on too! It has some extra sweetness, but for the most part it’s 100% pear taste! I might have to see if Red-kun can guess what it is without looking
Overall, I would really reccomend this. I know it won’t have the same Christmas nostalgia for everyone but the taste is worth it even without the memories! (о´∀`о)

It’s another Christmas snack!
I actually got this product as a suprise gift from my last candysan order! It’s a Christmas umaibo! The packaging is super cute and festive
The one downside is I had no idea what flavour this would be upon opening it. It was a total mystery
Inside is a corn puff tube that was light yellow with green flecks. Once I smelled it, I had a fairly good idea what it was.
Corn Potage. A personal favorite flavour for any savory snack, Japanese or otherwise. From what I understand, it’s pretty popular in Japan.
I was totally right! Corn potage is a great taste. It does have a corn taste and is slightly sweet and slightly savory. It’s absolutely delicious!
I’m not sure if the Christmas edition of umaibo is on their site, but they do have corn potage flavour for said and I would reccomend trying it!
