    I have been looking all over the internet for a supplier of this candy... http://www.lion-k.co.jp/product/enjoy.html
    The top right is the one i want to order.
    I sent an e-mail to the company asking if i could order through them but i'm not sure if i'll be getting a response any time soon.
    Does anyone else know of a good online supplier of this?

    its actually quite delicious, a friend of mine brought me a bag when she came back up from boston and it was amazing!
    It's a carbonated hard candy that is also good for your teeth! =]

    Well in the middle is this deposit of more carbonated but teeth whitening and strengthening deliciousness.
    From what the person said at the asian market they're good for your teeth.
    Nonetheless they are freaking delicious!

    Isn't there a china town around your area? Those are usually good places to find them; locally of course. I can't help you online though.

    The closest thing we have is FYE and they sell a small variety of asian candies and drinks.

    Well it might be a bit teeth whitening but its also acidic which is bad for teeth as I'm sure you know.

    well, i started looking on www.jbox.com, and i found a lot of candy, but not the stuff you're looking for, and i got sidetracked before I checked it all.

    Anyway, Amazon.com sells japanese candy (search japanese candy [​IMG]) and I found THIS there, may be similar.

    Also GameDiva has about 20 pages of japanese candy, maybe you'll get lucky.

    I'm running out of free time tonight or I'd search more. We've got an Asian Market near where I live, and I live in North Carolina for god's sake, so maybe there's a market nearer to you than you think. Let your fingers do the walking through the yellow pages, maybe something will turn up and be near enough to be worth the trip.

    Of course if you find a cheap importer online, share the wealth. I'm alway in the market for cheap Pocky or SuperCola.
