Candy of the week

I usually never have a sweet tooth, more of a salt tooth girl myself, but candy from distant lands deeply mystify me. 

This candy cost less than $2 at an Asian market in Brooklyn. It tastes like tootsie roll! 

Product of Japan. 
According to Wikipedia, this is Dutch from Coenradd Johannes van Houten of 1801. At one point the Dutch were the only people the Japanese traded with, for over two centuries. They even have a word for "Dutch learning". In Sakura, Japan there is a windmill built in the Netherlands and reassembled on the shore the Dutch first landed on in 1600.
