Sep 28th 2016 | I'm Just Peachy. And Ramen-ey?🍬🍬

Your Japanese candies are almost there! This email explains what was in the box, so it could be a bit of a spoiler.

The items in the box are: UHA Shiny Peach Gummies, Kabaya Pure Selection Gummies and Popin' Cookin' Ramen.

UHA Shiny Peach Gummies

These sparkly gummy strips are bursting with juicy peach flavors. There is no need to avert your eyes though, these sparkles come from sugar crystals. The unique shape and texture allows you the peel them in however many servings you want. Perfect for sharing with your friends and family!

Kabaya Pure Selection Gummies

If there was ever a "fine wine" of gummies then this is definitely it. The bag boasts having the purest of the pure when it comes to its fruit selection. The four flavors of chewy goodness are grape, aloe, pineapple and peach. Who will win the peach flavored gummy smack down? Kabaya pure? UHA Shine? There's only one way to find out.

Popin' Cookin' Ramen

Taking a complete left turn from peachy gummies comes this DIY candy ramen and gyoza kit. While instant ramen isn't nothing to write home about (bemmu's comment: I would write home about this), candy ramen is another story. The noodle texture feels just like real noodles, but the sweet taste gives away that it's candy. The gyoza, or pot stickers as they're known in the West for some weird reason, are crunchy and filled with even more candy goodness. If you need help making this kit, just follow along in this video!

I recently made the leap into VR and I couldn't be more happy with my purchase. Playstation VR is the real deal. I manage to get one on the day of release by waiting outside of a Yodabashi Camera in Tokyo for over 11 hours, and now they're sold out every where in Japan. Totally worth it!

My big audacious goal this year is to learn as many kanji characters as a Japanese 6th grader. Here's a tiny intro I wrote to how the characters work, aimed at someone who doesn't know about them at all.

I'm currently "finishing fourth grade" when it comes to character learning. This writing system really is crazy, here are the 1006 kanji characters you're supposed to know by the time you graduate 6th grade:

Popin' Cookin' Ramen

By the way, I'm not starting from zero here. I've been at this for more than 10 years >_< I feel I don't have much of a "natural talent" for this, but I'm very stubborn.
