My childhood best friend, Yumiko, brought two kinds of candy from Japan for us. I love the Matcha Candy. It has the distinct flavor of Matcha Green Tea without being as sweet as American candy.

The other candy (pack on the left) is really more for aesthetics. Can you see the detail of the little mice in the pink candy(peppermint flavored)? It’s the year of the mouse/rat and the yellow candy has “2008” on it. The brown pieces (butterscotch flavored) have the Chinese symbol for “child” on it symbolizing that this is a New Year candy. It’s really amazing how they can make candy with such detail.
