Weird Food... like Candy

Post by Kisshu » Tue 02.27.2007 11:38 pm

Ok, one of my bestest bestest friends at my school is a Japanese foreign exchange student. For Valentines, she got everyone she knew this huuuuge bag of candy with all kinds of good stuff. And one kind of weird thing. Amist all the toothachey sweets, a found a rather interesting kind of chocolate. It was green, and crunchy, and very very bitter like. I couldn't figure out what it was. Finally, I asked Chihiro herself. It was green tea flavored chocolate??!!!

What other kinds of weird candy do they have in Japan? :o

well, let's see. Kitkats come in a variety of flavors, including sakura, uji-kintoki, fruit parfait, azuki and wine. There is black sesame candy and plum wine chocolate.
Iced lemon chocolate. Fried almond chocolate. Chocoball apple pie.

Anjali at Giant Jeans Parlor is an American teaching English in Japan, every Friday she reviews a new Japanese candy. Fun to read!

Wow, that candy Friday page is great.

Well, this is not very unusual, but I bought some Pocky "men's" the other day. It's "men's" because the chocolate is bitter, so only men can handle it, I guess. I'm waiting for my girlfriend to come back from vacation before I try it though.

I love kudzu mochi, aka 葛餅 [くずもち]. Think of it as "Jell-O for a mature palate".
