The Lawson Store
Apple Taffy stuff - this stuff is so good - because it tastes like REAL apples, not fake Jolly Rancher apple taste - like biting into a juicy apple....mmmmmmmmm! Don't get me wrong - I love green Jolly Ranchers as much as the next gal, but sometimes you gotta taste a REAL flavor. Same for grape flavors here - grapes taste like grapes - the old fashioned kind with seeds in the middle - a pain in the tookus to eat maybe, but oh so delicious PURPLE seeds-in Concord grapes! (I'm drooling here.....pass the Japanese candies - quick!)
Milky Chocolate Balls - haha hehe yeah yeah oh grow up!!! - I love the graphics on their candies - almost like 1950s America, not that I was around then, but I've seen pictures! - and these candies are so good - I thought they would be crunchy, like malted milk balls - but the inside is a chewy milk flavored candy. Yes, milk flavored candy - there is actually a LOT of that over here! Milk hard candy, milk flavored cookies, milk taffy....yum yum - you save a whole lot of calories eating cookies if they already taste like milk! And everyone thought the Japanese people stay so thin because of their healthy fish, vegetable and rice diets - bah! I've stumbled upon the real secret - milk flavoring!
ok - got a cold? Tired of those menthol cough drops? Try THESE on for size! Top (red wrapper) is called "Hyper Mint"
Chocolate covered papaya - yes, the land of healthy living is just as guilty as we are of gilding the proverbial lily - sure, papaya is good all by itself, even good FOR you! - but hey! let's add some chocolate - there is a method to their madness - if you cover something in chocolate, you'll eat more of it - therefore you get more health benefits.....that's what I keep telling myself anyway!
Hmmmmm.....I like the concept - and I enjoyed the first 5 minutes of chewing this gum - but then it hit me - chewing Jasmine or Rose gum is NOT yummy, it's like chewing one of those hanging car air fresheners. It was a neat thing to see (and try) and apparently if you chew it longer than I did, it will even whiten your teeth! Next!!!
More milk flavored goodies - for those of you who don't know, Pocky are cookie sticks, dipped in chocolate. There are all sorts of flavors, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, pineapple, strawberry and more! There are even pocky that are made especially for MEN! One thing about pocky is this - they are ALL tasty! Oh my goodness, I just remembered a couple other flavors.....green tea, strawberry cheesecake, and Tahitian vanilla! Be right back -gotta run to Lawson! (just kidding - I can finish this post before I leave!)
