So I don't know how many of you are familiar with the story of Jamie Lano, an American artist who has been working as an assistant to Takeshi Konomi, creator of Prince of Tennis.
Lano recently started a blog, and in her most recent entry she mentions that she and the other assistants and Konomi-sensei decided to try a bunch of American candy to compare it to Japanese (Lano says it's much sweeter). She notes that the Butterfingers were incredibly popular, and says that anyone who wants to send some in (or any other candy bars) for them all to try should let her know.
How could I resist a come-on like that? So, I've decided to try and pull together a care package of sweets for Konomi-sensei and company full of candy-- and I have to get right on it, before it starts to get too warm to mail out any chocolate.
So, what I need from you, my friends: tell me what candy to put in the package. Butterfingers are definitely going to be in there. But what about Snickers? York Peppermint Patties? Kit Kats? (Well, no, I wouldn't do that, because Kit Kats are pretty common in Japan, but you get the idea.)
