Japanese Treats

I made an order a few weeks ago from an online place called jbox. They’ll ship just about anything they can get their hands on from Japan. Most notably for me, candy.

At the moment I’m interested in Black Sugar Candy. This is something I don’t see in the states and I was curious about it. It’s basically brown sugar or molasses hard candies. Very nice, with great smokey overtones. I got five different kinds of that. There are also some caramels and some gum in there and one other chocolate bar I wasn’t able to find in Little Tokyo.

I’ll have full reviews later, but here’s a photo of what came in the box:

  1. Nothing here looks familiar to me, but if it’s candy, I bet it’s good.

    Jessica - I ordered Dars from JBox.com, which charged me $1.25 for the package (50 grams). Here’s my full review. They don’t have the Bitter in stock right now.

    I’ve also seen it at Japanese grocers (we have a large Little Tokyo in Los Angeles), but not lately.
