This is an image of an old candy trade from June 2007 from a good Japanese friend of mine. It’s a great example of candy that’s been tapered to Japanese tastes. The flavors shown here are Red (Adzuki) bean, Green Tea and Black Sesame, all flavors which the Japanese people associate with sweets and have been used in confections for centuries. It’s cool to see how these flavors are now incorporated into modern candy.
I’ve heard that bubble gum cigarettes are slowly being phased out of candy stores so they don’t move kids onto real cigarettes as they get older. I’ve never been a fan of them myself, but I do admire the artwork that goes into them. That owl is so cute!
This was my candy swag from the last night I went Trick Or Treating. Pretty good for my last haul, I’d say!
Happy Halloween everyone!
Mixing some Halloween M&Ms into brownie batter. I love how two of them are smiling at us.
