Review: Botan Rice Candy
We picked these up at World Market, a great place for all sorts of candy. What caught our eye was the chubby little baby drawing on the box - odd yet intriguing.
The candies themselves are only about 1/2" x 1/4" rectangles, each individually wrapped. They're an opaque, light orange color. The candies themselves are quite normal, almost pedestrian. There's nothing at all wrong with them, they are chewy (sticky actually), and have a great, sugary orange flavor. But that's it. Perhaps I set my hopes too high for a more adventurous candy experience.
Each candy has an edible inner wrapper that melts in your mouth. If you're not paying attention, you'll miss this little nugget of information, its located on one of the inner flaps of the box. In fact, I missed it and spent several tedious minutes trying to get all the wrapper off.
They also come with a temporary tattoo for the youngsters. Ours was the Chinese character for "Friends."
