A Completely Unnecessary Candysan Haul

Posted in Lifestyle

Did I need any more Japanese candy?  No, I certainly did not.  I could probably do with getting rid of some of it, but alas when your dad gives you a little bit of “treat money” what is a girl to do apart from buy Japanese Kit Kats?

A Completely Unnecessary Candysan Haul - Famous in Japan

Japanese Kit Kat – Green Tea and Cheesecake

It was these Kit Kats that lured me into making an order in the first place, so blame them for this frivolous haul.   I am amused far too much by the sight of a green Kit Kat, so the Green Tea ones had to be repurchased.   It also helps that they are very tasty, and go well with a cup of tea.    I have heard a lot of good things about the Cheesecake variety, so I added those into my basket as well.  Apparently, you can heat them up in your oven or microwave to make them an extra special treat.  I will give it a go and report back!  Mmm… Kit Kats…

DIY Candy Kits – Kracie Popin’ Cookin’ Oekaki Animal Candy Land and Kracie Naru Naru Gummy no Mi

As I had so much fun making (and eating) candy animals with the Kracie Popin’ Cookin’ Oekaki Animal Candy Land DIY Candy Kit I had to repurchase it.  Seriously, it’s one of my favourite DIY candy kits so far.    I decided it was best to buy a back up of the Kracie Naru Naru Gummy no Mi Kit as I am not too sure about how to make it.   I was hoping that I could practice with the grape version that I already have, and then share this ramune version with you all when I know what I am doing!  We don’t want a repeat of the Coris Choco Kinako Mochi DIY Candy Kit, now do we?

Calpis MarshmallowsPuccho Awawa Ball Candies (Ramune) – Fujya Milky Candies

I have been dying to repurchase the Calpis Marshmallows for a while now but they always seem to vanish out of stock before I have a chance to get my credit card out.   They are finally mine, and I will definitely be tucking in when I complete an October Goal of watching a Japanese film.   The Puccho Awawa Ball Candies are ridiculous, addictive and fun, and I was curious about the ramune variety.  I hope they are as nice as I am expecting them to be!  Finally, I bought a generous bag of the Fujiya Milky Candies.  How could I not?  This is me we are talking about!

A Completely Unnecessary Candysan Haul ---- Famous in JapanI bought the Sakuma Fruit Drops as I really wanted the tin.   Yep, that’s all I wanted these for!   These candies are featured in the Studio Ghibli film The Grave of  the Fireflies (a.k.a The Film that Will Destroy Your Soul).  I had seen them on some other websites but they were a bit too expensive for me.  I was relieved to spot them on Candysan for a much cheaper price.  Finally, I think Candysan threw in a cheeky freebie for me.  I am not too sure what it is, but by the looks of it, it is a snack similar to Umaibo Choco Bites.

In terms of my experience with ordering from Candysan, it was good!  I have no complaints.   My order was processed and shipped the same day.  In terms of the time it took to get here, I ordered on 22 September and it arrived on 12 October.  I went for economy shipping (the cheapest, slowest shipping available!)  so that wasn’t too bad.

The Candysan website can be difficult to navigate at first as it is primarily in French, but you can change it to English should you wish!  Prices are in dollars, euros or yen.  I paid for my order in dollars as I initially thought it would be cheaper, but on second thoughts perhaps I should have paid in yen…

I would definitely order from Candysan again but I would make sure that I had got the stash down to a reasonable size before I did!  *resists urge to buy Halloween Kit Kats*

Have you had any completely unnecessary purchases lately?  Share the guilt!

    I might have to order some of these, you always make them sound so tempting! Plus, if you’re looking to get rid of some of your stash, I know a cool girl heading north next month ;)
