Best candy -- EVER

So, for kicks, I just picked up a bag of "Natural Seaweed Candy" from Soken - "It's Naturally Good!"

"Soken Seaweed Candy made from kombu, a variety of kelp well known for its high mineral and fiber content. This candy derives its gentle sweetness from malt syrup. Candy lovers young and old love its chewy gumdrop like texture and mild flavor. Each piece of Seaweed Candy is packed in an edible inner wrapper that simply melts in the mouth. So have another one. These candy are fun '--they're flavorful--' and they're 100% guilt-free."

Sweetened with malt syrup, no artificial flavors or preservatives, edible inner wrapper - how can you go wrong?

Well, they forgot one KEY POINT: IT TASTES LIKE SEAWEED.

The best part was watching the expression on ebess's face when she tried it -- not to mention the actual experience of trying it yourself. It's changed me, forever. I'm a changed man. (I spit it out after about 30 seconds, I didn't have the strength to endure. The people at Sokensha Co, Ltd. should be killed for this transgression against humanity.)
