Candy Japan

 Thanks Bemmu for sending me candy to review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.  

I have never been to Japan but I love experiencing and learning about other cultures around the world.  I found a neat way to try some candy from Japan.  

You can get your mystery sweets from Japan each month with a monthly subscription for $23.95.  

I thought it would be very interesting to try some candy from a different country.  I was shipped three different candies and they were very different from each other.  

The first candy I tried was the little "mini" in the yellow box.  They were small sweet candies that were chewy and several different flavors including grape, cherry, apple, lemon.  They were great!  The second thing we sampled was chocolate with a gummy inside it.  My kids love gummies so they loved it.  I thought the chocolate was great it was very smooth and creamy and yummy.  The last thing we tried was a bit questionable.  Since we could not read the packaging we had no idea what it was.  There was a picture of some strange faces so we thought it might be sour.  When we opened the package the candy looked like scraps of paper as they were very thin.  The smell caught me off guard and I was fearful to even put it in my mouth but my husband is always up for a challenge.  He put it in his mouth and immediately it came back out!   He was confused by the fishy flavor of a piece of candy.  So we are assuming that this might be some sort of gag gift.  Or maybe the candy is one that many Japanese families enjoy???  The fishy flavor was something I was not willing to even try... SORRY!  My dog did not even want to try it.  

The concept of trying things from another country is great!  It can be quite humorous when the candy is not something you expect but that is part of the mystery!

I am of Japanese descent but do not read Japanese. However, I am exposed to a lot of Japanese snacks and treats from my relatives. I am guessing that what you got was dried squid. We went to Universal Studios Japan (an amusement park) and instead of having the studio tour that they have in the southern California location, they had a tour based on the movie Jaws. At the gift shop they had several snacks that were dried squid but with the shark from Jaws picture on the package. Another popular treat are shrimp flavored chips shaped like french fries. There is a lot of seafood in Japan because they are on an island. At Tokyo Disneyland we got kim chee flavored popcorn. Kim cheese is fermented cabbage with hot spice similar to tabasco. If you were a Japanese kid, you would have liked the snack.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
