    Why the hell would somebody do all that work mixing and measuring everything just to make it look like sushi. If I want candy, I don`t want to make it myself.

    It`s not candy. It`s a toy called Konapun and it`s not edible. It`s made from seaweed and a few other chemicals and it does start to rot after awhile. They`ve got several different types of "food" including curries, ice cream, and fast food.

    Damn that was a lot of work. But I have seen candy sushi before. A friend of mine has made it. The "rice" is rice crispy treats. The "fish" parts in the middle of the rolls where made from gummy fish. And the "seaweed wraps" for the rolls were done with fruit roll-ups.

    i don`t understand what the big deal is. how is this any different than those gummy pizzas or gummy hamburgers you can get here in America?
    other than how long it takes to go from opening it it enjoying it, that is

    Ugh... I got sick just thinking about the severe sugar overdose that would lead to for me... Not that this stuff would be any better, but at least it looks cool to make, lol.

    If I want candy, I don`t want to make it myself.
    And that`s why America is fat and getting dumber while Japan is skinny and getting smarter.

    See the difference in values and their end results here?

    I had a customer at work who was Japanese or Korean or some kind of Oriental... anyway, she brought in some candy and one of the flavors was called "scortched rice". It was the most disgusting thing I`ve ever put in my mouth.
