The Sparkitors Review the World's Grossest Candy: Japanese Candy is Magic!

Melissa says: I underestimated the fun-ness of creating KIND OF ACTUAL SUSHI from a series of powder packets, but actually putting it into my mouth was a profoundly upsetting experience. Fun factor: 1,000 out of 10. Deliciousness factor: BAAAAARF. The "sushis" were like squishy, blandly sweet caterpillars crawling down my throat, and the soy sauce, while ridiculously fun to squeeze over the top, was nothing more than weird brown water.

I've long suspected it, but now I know: Josh is an agent of the Japanese candy industry, infiltrating SparkLife for a larger candy-pushing agenda. D+
