Dr. Jones, I Presume
These items should reach you in the first week of February.
Hore Hore Chocolate
Have you ever wanted to be a treasure hunter? Grab your whip and fedora, as this candy will throw you into your own Indiana Jones adventure. Best part is that you can eat the treasures instead of donating them to a museum. There are both real treasures and fake ones to trip you up. Dig through chocolate with a spoon. If you hit a sweet orange gummy, that's a real treasure. The fake ones are signified by a sour lemon taste instead.
For some extra fun you can examine the items and add up how many points you got. From left to right the points for the items in the picture below:
Haniwa: 500,000 points
Scroll: 9,500,000 points
Oval Gold Coin: 25,000,000 points
Dinosaur Bone: 50,000,000 points
Hero's Sword: 100,000,000 points
However if the item is sour, then it is considered a FAKE and is only worth 5 points. Here is a video of two kids playing with this treasure hunting set: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lHPXeeE2O4
Since there was some space left in the envelope, we also included Marble Chocolate, which is Japan's answer to Smarties.
Life in Japan
Flew from Japan to Finland for Christmas. Was dismayed to notice in Finland that I had forgotten to bring along a critical password that is needed to dispatch Candy Japan shipments. This mistake caused about 10 days of delay to the shipment, very sorry about that. I think the mail will start reaching destinations around the world in the first week of February.
First we had a Finnish Christmas complete with eating ham and bathing in sauna, then followed by a new year in Japan, which was spent doing even more eating of osechi. Holidays are starting to be a bit dangerous with this yearly double eating ritual.
