Eat with your Eyes: Gifts from the Sea


These curious little nougats studded with jelly have a selling point: they’re made with seaweed. According to the woman I met up with in the aisle of the Little Tokyo Market, if it’s from the sea, it’s good for you.

  2. Is there a picture of the wrapper?  I’m in Japan and want to find and try this.

    Carleigh - here’s what they look like inside their individual wrappers:

    And here’s the outside

    I may post a review of them in a week or so.

  4. Well, unless you’re allergic to seaweed!

    I have actually had something similar (looks exactly the same, but no seaweed). Super yummy

  5. I just snagged these today, beautiful little things. Haven’t gotten around to trying them but they do look yummy.

  6. Ok, just gave the yellow one a try. These remind me of fruit slices with dense marshmallow. They aren’t overpowering, just light, chewy, delicious.

  7. They kinda remind me of something from the old willy wonka movie

  8. I’ve had these before. I picked them up from a local Asian Specialty supermarket. They look cute but were bland in flavor. The outside sugar coating gives them a lovely texture though!
