To honor the character known as Kirimi-chan, whose head is a giant piece of salmon, Japanese companies Pucco and Sanrio teamed up to create salted-salmon chewy candy. The limited edition offering features a gray color to mimic salmon skin and the addition of salmon flakes to its center. But rather than acting as a ipecac, the candy has been described as having an orange flavor and only “hints of fish”, while others described it as sweet and mild.
Whatever the case, most purchases will most likely be the result of curiosity rather than any sort of appetizing appeal.
