Japanese Snacks: Chewy Candy
I gotta admit—when it comes to chewy candies, I was a Starburst kid all the way, but perhaps that's just because I had never tried Hi-Chew. Fruitier, chewier, and a whole lot tastier than their American counterpart, Hi-Chew are to chewy candies what Kasugai Gummies are to gummies.
On the other hand, Poifull are chewy-centered jellybeans with perhaps the cutest, most Roboppy-esque name on the planet.
