"This is the candy that I used to eat when I was a kid," said Dad handing me a box of Hello Kitty galore. This particular Hello Kitty themed snack is one of the souvenir that my Dad bought during his trip to Osaka - it had printed pictures of Hello Kitty everywhere, including the box and the candy wrapper! Each box is filled with 20-something wraps of bubble gum and each wraps has different picture of Hello Kitty on it. So, those who love Hello Kitty would definitely go ga-ga over it!

|Which one, which one. . .|
I took a candy, slide it out from the adorable and colorful Hello Kitty wrapper, then undress it from the aluminum foil wrapped around it. Inside was a rectangular light-colored bubble gum candy. Judging from the color of the gum, the flavor had to be orange.
I chew the candy and I was right, it had the flavor of an orange. The gum is very chewy and elastic, unlike any other bubble gum I have ever eaten. I chewed the candy for 10 to 15 minutes, probably longer, and didn't harden and was still elastic and gooey. What I love the most about the candy is that you can make a big balloon bubble with it!
I have never eaten a bubble gum that stays gooey and stretchable after half an hour chewing it, even the flavor was still there. As expected from a Japanese product.
