Little Boxes, Little Boxes
One of the things Marisa brought back for me from Japan was this long cello-wrapped package containing a bunch of little boxes of candies. It was so fun and cute that I hated to spoil it by opening it. Kind of like the fancy little soaps shaped like acorns that have been sitting in my bathroom for about three years except now the Sugar Baby has discovered them and has been carrying them around all day.
The first two I decided to try were Meiji "Marble" and "Choco Baby." The Marbles (if that's what they're called; it's the only English word on the label) tasted just like British Smarties. The Choco Babies looked like they had survived a rough night or two. (No doubt they did, traveling with Marisa.) These were little candy pellets that, well, I really don't know what to say about them. They were too small to really get a taste out of, but the Sugar Baby loved carrying the two boxes around and shaking them. He did make sure to tell me that each made a different sound. Apparently he's learning something in school or on Sesame Street.
Next up will be something pink. I'm very excited.
