Candygram

I just signed up for an awesome subscription service that provides me with biweekly candy packets from Japan. I signed up just a few days ago, and I already received my first package!

From the upper left corner and going clockwise we have hard milk candies, some mini chocolate malt balls, some sort of eel rollup*, and caramels.

The monthly subscription rate is $23.95, which is cheaper than cable. I love getting things in the mail, so I just couldn’t pass this up.

*regarding the eel or fish “candy,” I gave it to Peter. He took a bite then asked, “Are you sure this is edible?” He ate the whole thing. It looked like it had the texture of an Abba Zabba bar, sort of.

  1. So cool! I could see doing monthly; bi-weekly would be more than I’d need.

    Great to hear the candy arrived without problems. I love this photo. What’s this style called? It looks… desaturated.

    omg. i cannot wait to see what your other shipments contain.
    i am fascinated that he continued to eat the eel candy despite the questionable edible-ness. :)

    Here’s a bit of spoiler of what I’m planning to put into the next package, assuming I can get enough of them to send to everyone: http://www.youtube.com/user/CandyJapanese

    I’ll link back to your blog from the site, maybe you can get some new readers :)

    This sounds awesome. Of course, I’d be handing the eel ones to my husband and letting him at them. I used to get tons of Japanese candy from Kotobukiya, but I’m no longer down the street from the place.
