It's hard to get a better snack/souvenir for your family and friends; who doesn't love that bitter-sweet taste over green tea and sugar melting in your mouth, with just the right amount of crunch in the middle... It's the best thing, too, for nourishing your own sweet-tooth craving and Japanese candy snack craving that comes back even weeks after you've left!
