Discoveries at the Jungle: Botan Rice Candy and Meiji Choco Baby

Back to feed
Welcome to Discoveries at the Jungle, where every month we pick a theme and explore items from around the Jungle that you might not have found on your own! We do this through our blog, with videos, recipes, and our brand new Discovery Box.

This month we’re exploring the world of Japanese foods, and we are so excited that we’re putting together one Discovery Box this month, but two! The first box will feature Japanese snacks raging from sweet to savory, and the second box has items that will help enhance your own sushi-making experience.

We are excited to bring together two great aspects of Japanese culture in-store, online, and at home. Join us and discover something new today!

Botan Rice Candy

Botan Rice Candy is a soft, chewy candy with an outer layer of rice paper. The paper is clear and looks like a wrapper, but it’s actually edible and dissolves in your mouth. They have a lemon, orange, citrusy taste. It’s a very popular traditional candy in Japan and comes with a prize in each box!

Meiji Choco Baby

​While they look like hard candies they are actually pellets of real, silky smooth chocolate that melt in your mouth! The Meiji company also sells milk, yogurt, cheese, ice cream, and baby formulas in addition to their candy treats.
