Wacky waka

I'm the first person to praise Japan's wacky candy concoctions. But this... Seaweed? Sour plum? Seaweed and sour plum together?

This is so intuitively bad—like natto, marmite, vegemite, and other things that this epicurally intolerant American can't handle—that I never would've considered buying it. But it came from a friend, so I had to give it a try.

And what can I say.


Well, it tastes like you'd think. Not horrible but...I guess it doesn't matter how much sugar you throw on seaweed, it's still going to taste like eating lettuce and ice cream in the ocean.

But at least they include a toothpick with every pack so that you can fish the stuff out of your teeth!
