Botan Rice Candy

One of my favourite candies since I was a little kid, Botan Rice Candy was unqiue because of it's clear inner wrapper. It melted in your mouth. It was very popular with kids in the '70s. And the box still looks the same as we remember it when we were kids.

It also came with cool Japanese stickers that I used to stick all over my Pee-Chee folders in school......

You can still find it today in most Asian supermarkets......


  1. I’m old. I remember when Botan Rice Candy, much like its all-American counterpart Cracker Jack, came with a for-real toy prize inside. The “choking hazard” scare of the 80s put a stop to that.

    White Rabbit candies have the melt-in-your-mouth rice-paper inner wrappers, too. I also remember my elementary school friend Edwin (who was from Taiwan) sharing his haw flakes with me when the teacher’s back was turned. Haw flakes are still a great candy deal, last time I checked my local 99 Ranch, they were 10 rolls for a dollar.

    Nowadays, the kids are all about the Pocky. [rolls eyes]

  2. The manufacturer wasn't clear...where were the stickers made?
