Botan Rice Candy

Botan Rice Candy

Botan Rice Candy is a soft, chewy, slightly lemon-orange flavored candy with an outer layer of rice paper. The rice paper is clear and plastic-like when dry, but it is edible and melts in the mouth. It is a traditional Japanese candy and it is imported from Japan by JFC International Inc..

Botan Rice Candies come in a small cardboard box which contains 3/4 oz. (21 grams) of candy. Each box contains six individual pieces.
In the past, each box contained a small plastic toy, in addition to the candy. However, in 2003 the toys were replaced with a temporary tattoo. As of early 2008, the company has changed the contents to now include a paper back adhesive sticker. Each box currently advertises, "FREE CHILDREN'S STICKER INSIDE."


Glucose syrup (corn starch, water), sugar, sweet rice, water, lemon flavor, orange flavor, FD&C Red No. 40 (allura red AC).
