Let me introduce you to one of the most interesting candy I've eaten in awhile - Puccho Kajitsu King candy. The bag makes me chuckle ^^ It's pretty off the wall even considering the Asian love of kooky packaging~
It has real chunks of dried strawberry and pineapple in it and is made by the same company who makes Hi-Chew, so the white part has a similar (if not identical) flavor and consistency.
I really dig how they used real bits of fruit in the candy, which you can really taste since the white part doesn't really taste like much - it tastes (and looks) exactly the same as the white coating on the Hi-chew candies. There is a definite pineapple flavor, more than strawberry, which is understandable since it's naturally a stronger flavor. Since there's fruit the texture of the candy is pretty odd...dried fruit + chewy candy but it's not unpleasant.
This is definitely one of the more unique candies I've ever eaten and it's my brother's favorite Asian candy - and that's saying something since he always tries every piece of candy I buy (usually behind my back -____-). ahhah and it is certainly a must try :}
Otona no topo is a kind of bastardized Pocky ^_^ all the coating is on the inside~
Each box came with two packets :} The hollow tubes are coated on the inside with a (really) sweet creme brulee flavored cream, but it lacked the subtly of real creme brulee so I actually didn't like this too much :\ The cracker part was oddly...salty? and that made the cream even sweeter. I prefer the "real" Pocky ^_^ You won't be missing out on much if you don't try this I think.
Also, this is much belated post but Elisa of Memorable Days was kind enough to tag me for this awhile back :)
