Recently we received a care package from our friends Josh and Lauren from SkewToob. They picked up a bunch of candy at a Japanese candy store in Chicago and sent it our way. You know what that means! Time for a Japanese Candy Taste Test!
We were relieved to receive one candy we were familiar with, Hi-Chew. We also recognized KitKat, although in flavors we had never tried. (Maybe we just leave KitKat alone and not mess with a good thing? Maybe?) Everything else was new to us.
You can see our reactions to each of the candies in the video. Sadly, our camera stopped recording and missed the very best part – where we tasted a durian flavored candy, which was truly terrible. So terrible that when we searched to find out more, we found it high on a list of the top ten most disgusting candies. We couldn’t agree more.
Once upon a time we said we would slow down on the taste test videos. Thirty-three taste tests later, we’re pretty sure that’s never going to happen. We even have a handy dandy Taste Test Playlist, in case you missed one or two.
