If you’ve ever been to Japan, maybe you’ve visited one of the country’s numerous gardens. They are wonderful places to enjoy nature and contemplate life. What if you could make your own Japanese garden? Out of candy? And then eat it? You can!
The “rocks” are made from ramune candy or chocolate, while the pond is a gummy-type sweet.
In Japanese, this kind of candy is called chiiku kashi (知育菓子) or basically “educational candy.” You are supposed to mold the larger rocks, and then rake the sand-like ramune candy. The pond comes as is, so it simply needs to be placed in the miniature garden.
“Appreciate the spirit of Zen before eating,” read the directions.
Some are better Zen candy masters than others.
