Blast from the past

I went with my brother to Marukai, one of the largest Japanese specialty markets around here.  Besides the crazy $120/lb. Wagyu beef for sale and the much more reasonably priced sukiyaki I bought, I came across this candy I used to eat when I was a kid: Super Lemon.  Actually they come in a bunch of flavors, like Super Apple and Super Cola.

We used to sell these on the playground for $0.25 apiece to the non-Asian kids who didn't know where to buy them.  Hah!  We were entrepreneuer-capitalists even back then.

I always loved the cheeky comic-book packaging.  "OH! Powerful Candy."

Wow that is blast from the past. Ironically in Irvine it was the white kids selling them to me the asian kid :D

is this the candy that gives you a "buzz" on the tongue for like 1 min before it turns to sweet lemony candy? I remember eating bunch on these in kindergarten.
