Fun Candy Kits Imported from Japan

Whoever said you shouldn’t play with your food has never seen these candy treats imported from Japan. We recently wrote about how creative Japanese candy makers are and highlighted some of our favorite candy from Japan. Today we’re going to share some sweets that are fun to play with and even more fun to eat!

Let’s start off with one that is taking social media by storm…

Kracie Popin Cookin Ramen Noodle Candy Set
This Japanese candy set allows you to “cook” up a whole meal! You start off with a mango “pudding,” then move on to making ramen toppings. But it doesn’t stop there! You then get to put your creativity to the test by making dumplings and a spring roll. But the fun begins when you start to make the ramen noodles. As the video shows below, this is a fun process and something that your whole family can be involved with.


 

Kracie Popin Cookin Sushi Candy Set
No Japanese meal would be complete without sushi and this is one sweet version! There’s nothing fishy about this sushi even tho you get to make tuna, salmon roe, and egg varieties. Just follow the instructions and in no time you’ll have delicious candy sushi that may be better than the real thing!


Kracie Popin Cookin Tanoshii Burger
Straight from Tokyo, Japan is… an American burger! Japan does have McDonald’s so it makes sense that one popular Japanese candy would be this American classic. This candy kit has everything you need to create a sweet (and fun) version of our favorite meal – a burger, fries, and a cola!


Kracie Popin Cookin Cake Dessert Set
What meal is complete without dessert? None that we can think of, so it’s time to whip some up! This Japanese candy kit allows you to make soft ice cream, a tarte, and a cake! Of course, all the instructions are included, it only takes a few minutes, and your creation will look almost too good to eat.

All of these candy kits are perfect family night. They’re inexpensive and so much fun that you’ll want to buy several and give each family member one of their own.

International Candy Spotlight: Favorites from Japan

Hey candy lovers, are you ready to embark on yet another adventure to check up on some different treats from around the world? We are! So today we’re going to take a trip to a country that brings us fun, unique, and downright tasty sweets – Japan.

It’s no secret that Japan is known for its creative spin on food and candy is no exception. Unique combinations, bright colors, and strong flavors are hallmarks of Japanese candy and many brands have a cult following here in the United States. Here are a few favorites that we stock in our candy warehouse:

Puchao Gummy Soft Candy
If you’re looking for one of the more unique Japanese candies, look no further than Puchao. Known as Japan’s favorite gummy candy, one bite and you’ll know why! Each one of these gummy candies hides a burst of fizz of flavor inside that create a taste explosion. For example, the Cola flavored Puchao features cola gummies inside the center of the gummy along with “fizzy tablets” that when combined make this candy taste just like you opened up a bottle of pop.


Kasugai Gummy Candy
Once you try these Japanese gummy candies you may not snack on any other. Yes, they are that good! Available in several flavors including mango, grape, apple, and more. Plus, they are all gluten-free and some contain real fruit juice. What makes them unique is that each one is individually wrapped and slightly larger than gummy candy we’re familiar with here in the United States.


Hi-Chew
From gummy, we move to chewy and there’s no chewier candy than a Hi-Chew. In fact, this Japanese candy bills itself as being “intensely chewy” and it sure is, but along with being chewy these have an incredible amount of flavor which makes them one of our favorites. Available in multiple flavors such as grape, apple, mango, and more.

 


Shrimp Chips
Let’s end our trip by having a snack and we have a truly unique one for you – Shrimp Chips! Yes, you heard that right. These imported Japanese snacks are puffed wheat which is baked then garlic shrimp flavored. These chips have been around for more than 50 years and are one of the most popular snacks in Japan. In addition to shrimp and garlic flavored chips we also shrimp and wasabi if you want to kick it up a little bit!

We hope you enjoyed taking a virtual trip with us to check out some of our favorite imported snacks from Japan. If you missed our favorites from the UK, be sure to check them out as well. Remember, if you’re looking for imported candy, we have a great selection from around the world that we stock in our warehouse and are in stock and ready to ship without delay!

All Chocolate NECCO Wafers are now Available!

Lately, in the candy world, everything old is new again! And that’s great news for nostalgic candy fans. We recently wrote about the return of one of our favorite candy bars, the NECCO Sky Bar – and today we have news about another NECCO classic.

If you follow our blog, you probably know that in 2018 NECCO, the New England Confectionary Company closed after filing for bankruptcy. The company is best known for its candy wafers which have been produced since 1847. Like Sky Bar, the NECCO Wafers were almost lost forever when the candy company closed shop.

Shortly after NECCO closed, Spangler Candy scooped up the recipe and equipment used to make NECCO Wafers, and production resumed in 2019. Almost immediately after hitting the shelves from their short vacation, NECCO Wafers became an instant hit once again. Fans of the classic candy were delighted to have one of their favorites back, while the press and excitement surrounding their return garnered a whole batch of new fans.

 

NECCO Wafers come in eight delicious flavors – lemon, lime, orange, clove, cinnamon, wintergreen, licorice and chocolate. Now, can you guess which is the most popular?

If you said “chocolate,” you’re right! Spangler kept the taste of seven flavors exactly the same but tweaked the chocolate to have a richer cocoa flavor which fans instantly noticed.

In response, Spangler has introduced a roll of… you guessed it… all chocolate NECCO Wafers!

“Once we brought back the original assorted roll of Necco Wafers this past summer, the demand for the chocolate roll was almost instantaneous,” says Diana Eschhofen, Spangler director, corporate communications. “We know this has been a long-awaited return, and we’re ready to give chocolate candy lovers something they’ve been missing.”

Both the assorted roll of NECCO Wafers and the new all-chocolate roll are in stock in our huge candy warehouse, so be sure to buy a box of both! Speaking of nostalgic candy, we’ve got the largest selection of all your favorites so be sure to check out everything we have – you may just find an old-time candy favorite you forgot about!

Can I have more?

While we’re on the subject of Reese’s… did you know that they recently came out with the perfect morning snack? It’s true! The Reese’s Peanut Butter Snack Cake is perfect for that mid-morning, need a pick-me-up, treat to get you through lunch.

Reese’s Big Cup with Pretzels
There is no more successful marriage than that between chocolate and peanut butter.

KIT KAT DUOS Mocha + Chocolate
Building off the success of KIT KAT’s first DUO flavor, Mint + Chocolate, Hershey’s is introducing yet another flavor – Mocha + Chocolate. These King Size (yes, another BIG chocolate bar) KIT KAT DUOS feature the original crisp wafer that the candy bar is known for, but adds in a delectable mix of mocha creme, coffee bits, and the rich milk chocolate you crave.

If you love the taste of a mocha cappuccino, you’re going to love this candy bar!

Hot Chocolate Bombs: The Best Way to Warm Up this Holiday Season

Because this time of year we stock our huge candy warehouse with the most delicious type of chocolate you will ever taste – it’s so good, “it’s da bomb!”

Literally.

Our Hot Chocolate Bombs will change the way you make hot chocolate forever. Each one is made with rich, delicious Belgian chocolate with mini marshmallows tucked inside.

Now, here’s where the magic happens!

First things first. Get the fireplace ready, turn on the tree lights, and get into your favorite pair of comfortable PJs. Now that you’re settled, grab your favorite mug and heat up 8oz of milk. Place the Hot Chocolate Bomb into the mug and pour the hot milk over it. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and, voila! The most delicious hot chocolate you’ll ever have is ready to enjoy.

Hot Chocolate Bombs are perfect for holiday gatherings, sleepovers, cold nights… well, just about anytime you want to warm the body and soul with chocolatey goodness.

Start a New Tradition with an Advent Calendar this Christmas

There’s no holiday that brings more excitement to young ones than Christmas. From the decorations that adorn homes and neighborhoods to the anticipation of the annual visit from Saint Nick, kids love counting down the days to the big celebration.

One tradition that has been around for generations, and remains popular today, is the Advent Calendar. Used to track the 24 days from the start of Advent to Christmas day, these calendars feature “doors” that you open each day to reveal a special treat inside.

We know it’s hard to resist opening all 24 days at once, but patience is a must!

Our Advent Calendars are always a big hit with our customers and they tend to sell out very quickly. Since they’re seasonal, they’re only available once so when they’re gone, they’re gone until next year.

Check out some of these Advent Calendars for 2020 and get ready to continue the tradition or start a new one with your family.
