Untouchable Toffee opened its first store in Hamamatsu back in 2013, but the candy company didn’t launch a second branch until late last year when it settled in the hipper neighborhood of Harajuku.

The smaller outpost (4-26-5 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo) serves up five varieties of the treat — plain, dark chocolate, white chocolate, coffee and citron — with a small bag of one flavor costing ¥680. The plain toffee delivers a solid crunch, but in trying the dark chocolate it was easy to see why it’s the most popular flavor. Just remember to brush your teeth after you’re finished.
