“Papabubble” is a delicious candy treat originating from Barcelona, Spain. Japan’s “Papabubble” incorporates traditional Japanese candy craftsmanship to create the famous art candy shop that we know today! Now, Japan’s Papabubble is getting ready to celebrate the year of the Rooster in 2017 with the “Shōgatsu Mix” (New Year’s mix). Whether you purchase it or receive it, you are guaranteed to be filled with excitement!
The Shōgatsu Mix includes candy decorated with different patterns to wish you a good year’s start. These include 3 patterns to represent “Hatsuyume” ー in Japanese traditional culture, it is considered very lucky to dream of Mt.Fuji, a hawk and an eggplant on 1st January, granting you luck for the entire year. Therefore, the candy patterns are themed around these images. There is also candy decorated with a rooster pattern. This carefully designed candy makes for the perfect new year’s gift to wish someone a happy new year! These special candy packs are available for purchase from Sunday 25th December 2016.
Additionally, you can purchase lucky dip bags for the upcoming New Year. Hidden inside these lucky bags include limited edition goods that cannot be obtained in any other way, advanced goods for valentine’s day and long candy which is a sign of good fortune ー what will you receive? The ￥3000 lucky dip bags include limited edition candy that cannot usually be bought and can only be purchased from that region!
