A few weeks ago, as I was trying to find an item called “sushi candy” for one of my friend’s birthdays, I came across a nice online store.
This online store, which is called napaJapan, predominantly sells Japanese candy but also other items such as stationeries and bento boxes. There, you can either buy stuff from their eBay shop or buy it directly from their online shop.
I’m pretty sure that there are a lot of different online shops that sell Japanese candy, but this one in particular has a whole lot of different sweets, and the prices are also very fair. You can also choose your preferred shipping method and get a really cheap delivery.
If you are thinking about buying some nice Japanese candy, you should definitely check this shop out, but be careful! You’ll end up with a lot more items in your shopping cart than you actually planned to buy. This stuff is just way to awesome to not try it at least once.
If you can’t find what you are looking for, I can also recommend to you J-List and Japanese Treats.
On J-List, you can find stuff like games and manga as well, while Japanese Treats exclusively focuses on candy.
Here, you can see what I got (I only wanted to buy 3 of them and ended up with 11 instead…)
What I got is the following: (second picture: from top right to bottom left)
• Tohato Caramel Corn – Strawberry (that is probably the best candy I’ve ever had)
• Saku Saku Panda Cookies – Strawberry
• Pocky – midi Strawberry
• Kabaya Soft Gummy Candy – Watermelon
• Wata (Cotton Candy) Pachi – Melon Soda (that’s sooo freaking sweet, your body won’t need sugar for the next 3 days)
• Hore Hore Chocolate – Girls Gummy Dig (for some reason that sounds weird, but maybe that’s just my dirty mind :P)
• Morinaga Nama Ramune Gummies
• Choco Ball – Grape Soda
• As a little present, I also got a matcha-flavored Kit Kat bar
• Shigekix Super Sour Candy – White Soda DX (definitely deserves the “super sour”)
• Meiji Banana Chocolate
• Meiji Rich 70% Strawberry Chocolate Bar (best chocolate I’ve ever had)
Those 11 items cost around $20, which is definitely not very much. The shipping costs were another $10. So, all in all, I paid $30 for 11 items, and the delivery took a mere 2 weeks, which is more than acceptable~
Why am I only finding this now?!?! 😀
I paid pretty much the same amount and got a fraction of the candy you got. 😦
You should have stuck your hand in the photo for a sense of scale. To me, they look much bigger in the second photo than they do in the first. I wouldn't have said your hand was manly or anything. 😛
And yes, I've become addicted to this site. 😉
Lol this was like one of the most random posts I've ever made and I think it happened during that time, I didn't even know what to do with this blog.
Maybe I should delete it, it's embarrassing 😛
Oh and did you know, I'm getting Japanese candy for free that is “sponsored” by http://www.japanesetreats.com/. Isn't that super awesome?
Not only should you not delete it, you should make more posts like it. Just ignore the fact that it had no comments. If you were to repost it tomorrow, it would get a few dozen, at least. 😉
Now I'm jealous. But you should start reviewing Japanese candy. It would be especially useful to people who don't know which candy to get for that special person in their life. 😉
In this case, these people should just ask me directly 😉

You didn't give your opinion on the Meiji banana chocolate. I'm gift shopping for someone and need to know if it's good. 😛
If it's for Steffie, she likes it 😛
