Pickled Seaweed Apricot Chews

Lotte Wakadama To Kombu FumiThat's effectively what these are. The new confection from Lotte of Japan called "Wakadama To Kombu Fumi" has a soft chewy outside formulated to resemble the taste of a popular snack called Pickled To Kombu, a type of seaweed. It actually does contain a powdered form of kombu.

Inside the candy is a liquid center with an apricot flavor.

Growing up in a Japanese family, I know seaweed is a pretty popular food source in Japan. But my mom always seemed to go straight for the real thing, chunks of salted kelp pieces. Just suck on 'em, and swallow them when all the flavor is gone. Things have to be so complicated now.

I've been reading your blog for a little while now and find it very amusing. It was nice that someone kept it going while you were in the hospital. But I missed your wit, and your observations about the new products. Great to have you back.
