Strange Japanese Candy

Here are 8 odd and (maybe?) delicious treats you can find only in Japan.

1. Candy With Some Assembly Required

DIY kit to make your own hamburger candy. Cheese, meat and lettuce are gummy and the patties are crunchy. Want fries with that?

2. Candy That Wants You To Make Music
