The thrill is NO different for my kids.
This time it included a box of Japanese candy. The inner rice paper wrapping is edible. It is a semi-soft, chewy, slightly lemon-orange flavored candy. They loved it! The best part is that there is NO milk, egg, peanuts or tree-nuts in the ingredients.
BOTAN RICE CANDY, imported by JFC INTERNATIONAL, INC., Los Angeles, CA.
Ingredients include: GLUCOSE SYRUP (CORN SYRUP, WATER), SUGAR, SWEET RICE, WATER, LEMON FLAVOR, ORANGE FLAVOR, FD&C RED NO. 40 (ALLURA RED AC).
If you type in Botan Rice Candy on the internet, you will find many options for purchasing these candies. I remember buying these in handfuls at the Japanese store I could walk to from my childhood home. I'm sure you can find them at any local Japanese store near your home.
I would love to hear about any other Japanese candy suggestions you may have!
