Eat with your Eyes: Wonka Candy Cane

Wonka Candy Cane

Instead of being grape flavored, these were chocolate flavored. But still stunning looking. (Package here.)

Eat with your Eyes: Stars

Candy Stars

I bought these sour jelly stars a couple of years ago just so I could take a picture of them. And eat them.

Eat with your Eyes: Mushroom

Champignon Caramel

Michel Cluizel Champignon Caramel - it’s quite an engineering achievement. The cap is an almond crunch covered in chocolate, the stem is filled with caramel, covered in dark chocolate then white.

Eat with your Eyes: Red


These are a different kind of red lentil. They’re Kopper’s Milkies, like M&Ms only made with smoother milk chocolate. (Original review here.)

Nobel Nama Caramel Gummy

Nama Caramel GummyNobel  is not a brand of Japanese candy I know well, though I immediately have affection for them because they make the Super Lemon sour candies that have the charming packages.

A couple of years ago I picked up a package of Puccho that was creme brulee flavored (technically I think it was called Baked Puccho - Custard Cream). I love it so much and though I know it was a limited edition flavor, I’ve been looking for something like it. A chewy, milky and caramelized sort of thing.

When I saw this little package in Little Tokyo I thought I’d give it a go. It’s called simply Nama Carmel Gummy. I could palpate the pieces within the bag and could tell that they were firm but distinct pieces, like tiny little fleshy bricks.

Nama Caramel Gummy

It smells sweet and rather woodsy, like brown sugar and milk. The texture is soft and bouncy but quite firm. There’s a light dusting of what I’m guessing is corn starch, so they’re not shiny.

Honestly, they don’t look like much, but they’re quite dreamy. Instead of being caramel flavored, they’re actually made with milk and cream ... that’s not zinc oxide making it look milky, it is milky. It’s a toasty flavor, not too sweet. The texture is bouncy and chewy more like a Haribo than a Trolli. They’re crazy good though I admit they’re strange. It’s really like eating something that’s a cross between butterscotch pudding and jello. I would definitely buy these again if I can find them.

Of course I can’t find them online.
