Here’s an appealing idea: candy containing small amounts of fish. That’s exactly the draw of the limited-edition “salted salmon flavor” variety of Puccho, a popular soft candy usually available in fruit flavors.

The brand is teaming up with one of Sanrio’s newer characters, Kirimi-chan — a salmon fillet gone kawaii (cute) — and, as the packaging proclaims, each bite-size gummy includes real salmon flakes. It’s a novelty, but not of the gross-out variety. The snack attempts to balance the fruity sweetness of a regular Puccho with a lingering salmon taste. Try it once to satisfy your curiosity.
