Yes, that’s right. You are looking at one of the most awesome Japanese Christmas paper houses with candy EVER!!!!! And if you wanna see some up-closeness then just keep your googly eyes fixated right here!
In my recent travels and wanderings I happened upon this item in a Japanese supermarket in LA. I found it online so you can purchase one of your very own – but at more than twice the price I paid! Sheesh!
Here are pics of the whole outside of the box…
and here is the box when it is first opened (I took all the candy and paper stuff out)…
You pull apart some perforated sections and do some fancy folding and putting together of little stuffs and wa-LA!!!
The box comes with an enormous amount of candy presents in a long string of packaging – I guess so that you can hang it somewhere next to the house on Christmas morning…
I’ve had one so far and it was a chocolate covered wafer cookie thing.
And here are close ups of the inside…
Pretty damn cute!!!!
I also bought another Christmas themed candy there – mostly for the packaging.
It’s called Christmas Kuppi Ramune starch candy by Kakudai. I couldn’t find this product online though.
Kuppi Ramune is the name of the rabbit and squirrel characters. I don’t know if they are anything other than candy characters. I can’t seem to find anything about them – other than on candy packaging.
This particular candy isn’t so great. It’s called starch candy and they aren’t lying. It kinda looks like a sweet tart but isn’t at all.
I also went to a nearby Daiso store and got myself another pair of fuzzy slippers among many other things. I have a hard time controlling myself in either the Daiso store or the Japanese supermarket.
Here’s me enjoying some holiday entertainment in my new slippers….
That’s about it. Have a fabulous Christmas Eve!!!!!!!!
