I have never tried Japanese candy before till now, and I have to say that it's delicious! I really didn't think that I would enjoy it. But I was wrong on so many levels. This box came with three different candies: Puccho Balls, Chocolate Shimi Corn, and Juu-C Kit.
Puccho Balls Puccho is very popular in Japan. They usually come in squares with little gummies inside, and there of tons of different flavors depending on where in Japan you find them. These soda flavored Puccho Balls have a crunchy outer-shell with a chewy and sour center that makes your mouth fizzle! The package is also designed to slide, so you can keep your Puccho yummy and fresh.
The puccho balls were very great. I enjoyed these and would love to have some more. I wonder where I can buy some?
Chocolate Shimi Corn This wafer snack is soaked in chocolate and they really want you to know it! The package reads "simukonda," (しみこんだ) which means "to soak." It's crispy, practically melts in your mouth and doesn't really taste like corn. Go figure. It's in the shape of a star, hence the smiley little mascot on the wrapper.
The chocolate shimi corn tasted really similar to chocolate/vanilla/strawberry wafers we have here. I might like this a little better though. It, to me, had a richer taste and left me wanting lots more. I would recommend getting multiples of these to take care of your chocolate frenzy!
Juu-C Kit This is like a DIY Pez kit. It comes with pineapple and grape flavors, as well as soda flavor. It has a very nostalgic chalky texture and it's very sweet!
I am not a big fan of DIY candy or pez candy. However, it ended up being good. I missed up on the first batch (yellow and blue one), but it didn't matter. These tasted really good anyway. My favorite was the grape.
If you are wondering how you will be able to read the packaging to make it, they send an email at the beginning of the month with all the info about each candy, and if there's DIY candy kits, they give you the instructions in English.
