This sweet milky candy is known as much for its taste as for its plucky female mascot, all pigtails and tongue hanging out, Jordan-style. Peko-Chan is wildly popular in Japan; she can be seen everywhere, from iPhone cases to huge statuary in front of Peko shops. Head over to their website to take a closer look at Peko. Like us, you'll have no idea what the fuss is about. But the candy is good, rich but not too sweet, like caramel with more milk.
