Lotte Suika Ba: This is an ice cream bar you can find anywhere in Japan, in convenience stores (individually wrapped) or in grocery stores in multi-packs. The package comes with two flavors (3 of each): half watermelon and half honeydew. They're extremely cute and have a candy taste that's definitely sweet but not really as artificial tasting as the Jolly Rancher equivalent taste. And the bars themselves are pretty substantial and have a consistency that's less watery than a typical fruit popsicle in the US. One of the most fun things about it is the little chocolate "seeds" throughout that are like crispy mini chocolate balls. I personally liked the watermelon one more than the melon but they're both delightful. I can definitely see how this could be a childhood favorite if I grew up in Japan, but I enjoy them even as an adult! 3.5/5.0
