It's so wonderful candy!
I don't travel much these days. But I have wanderlust deep, deep in my bones. Nothing to do but every so often go to the foreign grocery stores in the area. I don't go to them because I actually know what I am doing: I go to them precisely because I don't know what I am doing. These are sweets from Marukai, a Japanese market. I give extra points to the products with helpful pictographs ("Oh! Super candy!") and ones for which the cultural connections are simply too foreign for me to ever understand. I don't want to figure them out. I just like that they're there and so very foreign (is that a female sumo wrestler duck? I don't have anything with a female sumo wrestler duck. Must buy.). Gotta love these bottles, the glass ones with the little marble that rolls around at the neck? Oh! Super bottle!
