Japanese candy makers often produce little DIY kits so you can create your own Japanese candy. These are fun little kits and would be a great project to do with your child. However, the instructions are often only provided in Japanese. There are usually illustrations to help guide you on what the steps are to create your own candy at home.
Glico Caplico is one of my favorite Japanese candies! These are miniature ice-cream cones. These are light and airy treats and come in three flavors: strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla.
