Oshidori Milk Cake: I bought this candy because of the cute but somewhat dated-looking packaging, which made me think it was probably an older classic snack. Inside the bag are individually wrapped milk cakes, hard sticks about 2x in length as a stick of gum. They are completely opaque in color but have some air holes in them. Each stick is fairly brittle so that they snap when you bite into it. Flavor-wise, this was definitely one of the worse things I've eaten in Japan. It tastes kind of like I'd imagine candle wax tastes if it were mixed with a little bit of milk powder. I disliked it so much that I found it difficult to finish a single stick, though the bag had many, and I left them in my Airbnb for someone else to consume if they dare. 1.0/5.0
