(I’m referencing one of f(x)s early album tracks for their Nu ABO EP.)
I’m actually usually cautious when opening up something from the Birthday Box, because sometimes they have packaging that can’t be resealed or something. I opened these sooner than I would have because I had the sneaking suspicion that they were individually wrapped, and therefore I wouldn’t eat them all in one go anyway. They were. The big text in Japanese katakana on the outer packet reads ‘mini soft cream (mini sofuto kuri-mu)’. This is misleading, as they’re hard candies shaped like ice-cream and taste like the classic neapolitan three flavours of Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry. I hoped that, at the very least, they would be gummy candies. A part of me rejects the idea of chocolate-flavoured hard candy, after having found so much comfort in soft, melty, regular chocolate. I prefer the word ‘candy’ to sweets. I guess you could say the word ‘candy’ sounds ‘sweeter’ to me! (Sorry, but not sorry.) As you can see, I’m still trying to improve the blog photography. I have no white surface besides the windowsill, which means shoving all of my skincare and makeup products to one side whilst trying to get a nice angled shot.
In the entire packet I got only one strawberry flavoured candy, and I opened it up for the sake of photography. It tasted good.
To finish off, here is more Ice Cream themed K-pop… ‘Ice Cream Cake’ by Red Velvet, from the same label as f(x).
