Konpeito, for those of you that dont know, are the oldest and most classic Japanese candy around. For hundreds of years, this delicately produced candy has been made and used for special occasions, enjoyed by citizens and nobility even today (This candy is still used as a gift for foreign ambassadors visiting the Prime Ministers house).
This delicious sweet is made by layering sugar syrup around a ball of coarse sugar and rotated in a heated kiln. Sometimes this process goes on for several days, and the uneven coating of syrup makes the little bumps that make Konpeito such a recognizable icon around the world!
This pack of Konpeito contains 115 grams of different colored Konpeito candies, perfect for sharing with friends or just to experience this Historic Japanese food for yourself!
