'Beef Candy' blurs the line between sukiyaki and candy

By SoaNews24

From art candy shop and self-proclaimed “most interesting candy store in the world” Papabubble comes Beef Candy (Gyuniku Kyandi). At first glance it looks an awful lot like some marbled strips of premium meat, but in reality it’s made from little more than sugar and starch.

Adding to the general confusion, this hard candy is given the salty and sweet flavors of soy sauce, sugar, and sake often found in sukiyaki. However, unlike raw or even cooked beef, these strips can be stored at room temperature for up to 120 days.

According to the online shop where Beef Candy is exclusively sold, recommended serving is to just knock off a piece of your desired size with a hammer. It can also be purchased in a Paulownia wood box for 1,500 yen or a thriftier supermarket butcher tray for only 1,250 yen.


In either case, you’ll be getting high-quality handmade candy from one of Papabubble’s certified candy artisans. However, due to this craftsmanship, orders need to be made in advance, and those who order now should expect to receive their Beef Candy after July 1.

▼ Papabubble also has a YouTube channel to let people see how they operate, or just to chill out with.
