Nobel Super Lemon Candy
Upon purchase, I didn't even care if these Nobel Super Lemon candies were tasty or not because the Roy Lichtenstein-like design on the packaging is fantastic enough to sell me! It's also an extremely cool way to get across the message that these candies are super sour, or X'treme, as popular packaging might bill it. Look at the rays of pain emanating from the woman's mouth on the bag- even if you can't read Japanese, the message is clear. The lemon candies are good, too. The outside is wiped with a super sour powder that takes your breath away a little bit. But that sour powder quickly diminishes and you're left with a soothing yet tart and citrus-laden lemon candy that's extremely satisfying. I love these!
