Turning Japanese, I Think I'm Turning Japanese

My friends gave me these outrageously cute packages of Japanese gumballs for Christmas in February.  Each box contains 5 tiny flavored gumballs.  So far I've had banana and orange flavor and the banana are quite tasty.  I just can't get past how cute these boxes are!

Cupcake Pebbles

I usually don't write about non-candy products but I can't keep this to myself. Cupcake Pebbles. That's right, Fruity Pebbles cereal only cupcake flavored.  It tastes and smells just like vanilla cupcakes. Trust me on this one. If you like cupcakes, you must get a box. I found this box at Meijer.

You're welcome.

Mike and Ike and Hot Tamales Bubblegum

Every once and a while Walgreens comes through for me in a big way.  On my latest trip I hit the jackpot when I discovered Mike and Ike and Hot Tamales flavored bubblegum.  Each gum carries the flavor of their candy counterparts.  The Mike and Ike gum has lime, strawberry, cherry, orange, and lemon flavored pieces.  Not only are they fruity, they taste exactly like regular Mike and Ike's.  How do they do that?  The only downside is that I am compelled to swallow each piece after chewing it for a while.

The Hot Tamales gum packs some heat!  I find Hot Tamales candy nicely cinnamon flavored and not as hot as Atomic Fireballs for example, but the Hot Tamales gum made me choke it was so hot.  I wasn't prepared for the heat.  It's almost like eating a hot pepper.  However, once the heat wore down and the candy shell was dissolved, the gum actually had a nice and sweet cinnamon flavor.

At Walgreens this gum sells for 2 for $3 or one for like $1.59.  The Mike and Ike bag has 75 pieces and Hot Tamales has 50.  I may have to stock up some more M&I before it's gone.
