Tasty Tuna Tidbits

There you are at the party when you suddenly see a bowl of shiny foil wrapped candies sitting in a bowl. You reach down and unwrap it while talking with that person that you have wanted to make a good impression. Continuing that conversation you pop the delicious treat into your mouth. You smile and think, “Mmm….er. Oh my goodness. I-I-I am going to hurl. This tastes like… FISH! I can’t spit this out, they will see…” You chew and swallow as soon as you can.

You just ate a piece of Jane-Jane Tasty Tuna Tidbits Candy. These deceptive-looking treats might be a good gag at a party, and they may actually taste good. The idea of fish candy (with tuna as its main ingredient) is something that will not catch on very quickly in America. I haven’t tried it, and I don’t really want to. Jelly Belly already has their sardine-flavored Jelly Bean, and that is enough fish candy for me.

    I work near Chinatown in Boston and I always wander into the grocery stores there, fascinated with the stuff in the candy aisle. But, you know what? I never buy any because I am afraid of exactly what you wrote about today: coming home with something completely, unthinkably disgusting.

    What makes you think this is candy? There are lots of dried fish & crab snacks in Japan & Asia. It doesn’t actually say candy on the package and when I went to the Asian Grocer link they classify it as a snack food.

    Asian Food Grocer calls it, “Tasty Tuna Tidbit Candy” and the second ingredient is Sugar and Sorbitol is also an ingredient (yes, I know that isn’t a lot in todays sugar-filled society, but it is something). Full list: Tuna, sugar, salt, m.s.g, soy sauce (soybean, wheat, salt, sugar), sorbitol, sorbic acid. They are also wrapped like cute little candies.

    Believe it or not… I have actually tried them. XD
    They’re surprisingly good, or the brand I tried were, if they make more than one brand of this stuff. Salty and sweet at once, and kinda chewy, maybe like dried fruit or meat. You wouldn’t eat a lot at once, but they’re nice after-dinner snacks.

    I’ve had the real Chinese version. (I was in Taiwan). They aren’t candy in the traditional sense (sugar base and all that). They’re really dried fish cubes. It’s like eating a piece of beef jerky only less tough and differently flavored. They’re not bad, a little sweet and salty– savoury. I guess you have to be used to dried meat, fish, and dried “salty” plums–most aren’t salty, but sour– (Chinese food can be weird-you ain’t seen nothing yet) to understand why these are considered candy.

    This is the best stuff in the world. And if you ever get used to them they’re addicting like yeast candy and algae candy. I have finished a whole bad of this stuff in one sitting. This like beef jerky and fermented tofu is definitely an acquired taste. =)
