Kasugai Gummies
The king of Japanese gummies, they come in every fruit flavor you can imagine from pineapple to melon to apple to mangosteen.

The office was split on these chocolate covered gummies from Kasugai. Robyn and I weren't fans—the chocolate gets squished into the gummy in an odd way. Maggie and Adam, on the other hand, were fans, saying that it reminded them of Raisinettes.
