Japanese Sugar Tablets: Meiji Hi Lemon
Hmm, maybe it's just the packaging of the Meiji Hi Lemon tablets from Japan, but these candies have a real medicinal feel to them. Pop them out of the tinfoil backing like a pill or lozenge, and you're confronted with a mild lemon-flavored sugar pellet. I wouldn't call the Hi Lemons unpleasant but there's nothing about them that's compelling, either. Usually I'm enthralled by Meiji's clever packaging, but in this instance it's simply a distraction from the lackluster candy.
