Food experiments in Japan: continued in California


(long overdue post; found these photos while writing another travel post for my website.)

Immediately after I returned from Japan last year, I was really happy to find these fruit flavoured, gummy chews also available in SF. Weirdly addictive, and I’ve made specific trips out to buy more from the only shop I know that sells them in SF.

In the same week that I returned to California, someone else (who shall remain nameless by request!) brought the following back from his trip.

These tasted awful, and the flavour lingered for hours, despite vigorous toothbrushing 🙁

    The shrimps ones were not that bad 🙂

    The Japanese candy is called Hi-Chew and you can order the English version in bulk from Amazon, as I do 🙂
