When I was a little girl, growing up in L.A. there was a small shop down the street that all the kids called the Japanese store. It was a tiny place but just perfect if you wanted to spend the change in your pocket…or your milk money.
On the left side of the counter there always seemed to be a box of chocolate “Ice Cubes” for 5 cents each. But on the right side, at two for a nickle–was the good stuff…the White Rabbit candy. Incredibly cool. Haven’t tasted it in a hundred years.
So when April’s Jacob came back from a trip to the Orient, we were pretty happy with the present he brought us. Here’s why…
After unwrapping each piece, you find a second wrapper–made of rice paper–that you just eat. No, really. It melts in your mouth and then you get to the actual candy. It’s kind of a cream taffy that tastes a lot like–well, cream. So dang good.
So tasty in fact, that we gobbled them up in like 12 minutes.
Pretty sure Miss Chompy ate like 400 of them. So it’s actually her fault that I had to get online and…
buy a bit more. It seems that I have a possession problem.
As therapy–I’ll do a quick little giveaway for one of my precious bags. I should be more generous but I’m not cured yet…so it’s one bag. Sometimes I break out in hives when I share too much. Baby steps, folks…baby steps.
Leave a comment and I’ll announce the winner of the stupendous White Rabbit candy on Friday August 5th at 10am…if there’s any left that is.
