Sumikko Gurashi are these adorable San-X characters that have very simple, yet cute, designs. When coming across these edible puzzles of them it was clear these had to reviewed! These puzzles are about €4,- a piece and there are a total of 10 designs available. Which one you get is a surprise, unless you manage to find a store that sells them then you could guess from the colours.
Most of the fun of these puzzles is in making the actual puzzle. It honestly took a while before they were done, it can be hard to see where the pieces go because of the size of these puzzles. A tip to anyone who does buy these: look at the picture on the back of the packaging to figure out which puzzle you’ve got and how it should look when it’s done.
The actual candy pieces reminded me of pez, both in texture and flavour. They were supposed to have a cola flavour to them, which there was a hint of. The main flavour I got was sweet, with a bit of a hint of sour. There also seemed to be a slight hint of bubble gum flavour to it.
Overall I liked the flavours and I definitely liked making the puzzles. I can definitely recommend these to any Sumikko Gurashi fan, or anyone who loves edible puzzles.
