Kompeito

Kompeito is a Japanese confectionery with a rich history, made by repeatedly pouring sugar syrup over a single grain of pomelo and then drying it. It takes as long as two weeks for the candy to take on its lovely, star-like shape. It is not as hard as candy, and the sweetness spreads softly in the mouth, and the shape crumbles when you bite into it. Kompei sugar is also used as a gift for the royal family. This is because it takes a long time to make kelp sugar, so it is given as a gift to the royal family as a sign of “building a family slowly”. It is a perfect gift for weddings and White Day.
