I still basically have no idea what the word crunk means.

When it comes to candy, the Japanese really know how to name their products for maximum American kitsch appeal:

Crunky Japanese Candy

Note that I found this on the same day I bought the bacon-flavored jellybeans from the SoHo Pearl River location, because the Japanese also know how I love to eat fattening foods but am too lazy to grill up some actual bacon.

The Crunky bars were like Kit Kats but less dense and less sweet, which is basically how all Japanese candy is in my experience. Which is why I’m never leaving the U.S. for it, despite the number of karaoke joints there.

      1) It’s embarrassing how much I like that song.
      2) I really think I have the right kind of dance skills to be an excellent Teletubby.
      3) Your “Conan” appearance totally trumps my Julie & Julia appearance, even if you didn’t actually appear yourself.

    Japanese have the weirdest name for packaged snacks and candies. LOL

    I got so excited for a minute. I thought you were going to say the crunchy bits in Crunky were pieces of bacon. Sigh.

    On the bright side, I now have a FREAKIN’ AWESOME idea for my next dessert creation.
