Strange unidentified Candy

Post by soundofonions » Mon 04.28.2014 12:47 pm

Hi everyone, someone recently gave me this japanese candy. However I can't read what it says, and I'm not sure how exactly to eat it. If anybody knows this candy, or can read the package, it would be greatly appreciated!

It's too blurry trying to read through the plastic.

The instructions are on the back, you need to take a photo from the other side. All I can make out is 'be careful not to let the contents spill out when you decide to eat it!'

These are Jelly Bars (lit: Jelly Sticks). I've seen plenty of domestic and foreign candy like this. You simply rip the top off and squeeze the contents into your mouth. Here's an example using a similar product (the method's the same).
