Wednesday Japanese Candy Review!

Japan isn't really known for its gum.  Most of the gum I've sampled from Japan is fairly similar to North American gums, with the exception that many have some kind of green tea flavour.  You just don't find a great deal of creativity in Japanese gums.  Today's review is the exception to that, but for the most part it's true.  I think that it might have something to do with the Asian gum market on the whole.  If I'm not mistaken there are several Asian countries that don't even allow you to eat gum, and many with strict gum chewing laws.  This tells me that there's probably little market to sell gum outside of Japan, so few manufactures bother.  It's just a theory, and I could be wrong.

Today's exception to the rule gum review is provided by the great folks at  If you want to sample some really strange Japanese gum, visit their site, and make sure to use enter the word "candycritic" for a discount.
