Fujiya's Milky(Jp) is the long-selling chewy milk candy known for its cute package with mascots Peko and Poko, and "Milky wa mama no aji (Milky tastes like Mommy)" jingle. Practically every Japanese ate it at least once in their childhood, you can say.
Now the confectioner is collaborating with BANDAI, to release a bath bomb that looks and smells just like Milky.
Read on for details and pics.
Peko is a six-year-old since 1950. The boy on the right is her boyfriend Poko, seven-year-old since 1951, the year Milky was launched. The dog in the middle is called "Dog".
The bath bomb comes in candy wrapper, smells like Milky and contains skim milk as moisturizer. The red letters on yellow strip says "This is bath agent. DO NOT EAT".
Comes in three colours and scents, "Milky", "Strawberry Milky" and "Pineapple Milky". Looks just like Milky candies except it's considerably bigger.
To be on sale at drugstores and supermakets on Feb. 23, for 210 yen (about 2.30 USD) each. These bath bombs bundled with the candies would make a perfect souvenir for girls and children.
