Squid Candy + Other Bizarre Japanese Candies

Dew Dew, Scallop and Squid candy, Gummy Collagen? While they are certainly strange - I'd be willing to try any of them.

If you thought the food in Japan was a bit strange, have you ever seen Japanese candy? Not everything is sweet or made of chocolate and sometimes the things made of chocolate are very surprising. Say what you will about Japanese cuisine, but they are extremely adventurous when it comes to new flavors, especially in candy. Whether you like your candy sweet, chocolaty, sour, or maybe even a bit savory there's a Japanese candy out there that you've got to try. (We'll be honest, there's plenty to avoid too). Take a look at this sampling of Bizarre Japanese Candy and decide for yourself what sounds delicious or disgusting.

I have a picture on my flickr of a can of honey roasted peanuts. Those are pretty good, right?

Right next it, a jar of squid roasted peanuts. Hmmm....

Yeah, the ones I have had tend to strive towards innovation over sweetness. Pocky is pretty mainstream now concidering that you can buy boxes of it in Costco, but go into some Asian supermarkets/malls and you can find some very interesting treats. I personaly like green tea hard candies and ginger chews.

^ This.
I prefer the strawberry Kit-Kats. Anything lychee. Japanese gum has a tendency to keep it's flavor and soft elasticity longer.
