What's wrong with this picture? Who in the world thought that an egg soup would make for good candy. Why did I buy it you ask? Well at one of my favorite Asian candy shops I saw this on the shelf, when the lady working there saw it in my hand all the said was "candy... candy..." while shaking her head. I thought, "wow I do a site all about candy", so why not?

Well this is an odd candy if I ever saw one, it looks like a bowl of raw eggs, only it's dry. On closer inspection it seems to be a white powder with round yellow candy beads. The powder has a sour taste that leaves a strong after taste and the beads are really just basic sugar flavored. Actually for the most part there is no flavor but, I guess it could have always been egg flavored. The coolest part has to be the little spoon to eat it with, very neat.
