I think it's been mentioned before on this blog that I love foreign candy. Chris & I went to Uwajimaya on Monday and spent way too much on snack foods... I picked up several bags of the gummy candies I'd discovered on our last visit. This time, however, in addition to enjoying the contents of the packages, I actually took a moment to enjoy the packages themselves.
On the Strawberry Gummy package:
"Kasugai's strawberry gummy, made from fresh strawberry juice, is a very delicious gummy. Please have a fun time with this strawberry gummy."
On the Apple Gummy package:
"Every drop of fresh apple juice, carefully pressed from the reddest apples, shining in colors of the cheeks of a snow-country child, is yours to enjoy in each soft and juicy Kasugai Apple Gummy."
[Honestly, likening these treats to the cheeks of a snow-country child makes them less appealing, not more... I don't want to be eating child cheeks, for crying out loud!]
On the Muscat Gummy package:
"Its translucent color so alluring and taste and aroma so gentle and mellow offer admiring feelings of a graceful lady. Enjoy soft and juicy Kasugai Muscat Gummy."
