That new Nikon Z fc is pretty sweet, but the company has recently released something even sweeter. And I mean that quite literally. Nikon Museum in Tokyo has released a box of yokan candies in a special commemorative box, which I guess is the sweetest Nikon kit in the market.
This sweet box made me explore what yokan is, and I learned something new today. It’s a type of Japanese confection made of red bean paste, agar, and sugar. You can add a variety of flavors to them, as well as different nuts and fruits.
DC Watch writes that Nikon already offers a set of five flavors at the museum, but the new set has been expanded and includes ten flavors: ogura, salt, yuzu, sesame, neri (“plain”), chocolate, blueberries, chili peppers, matcha, and brown sugar.
The first five flavors were included in a set that was originally only available at the employee store since the early 1970s. The same flavors were included in the first box that has been offered in the museum store since 2015. On the box, there’s an iconic Nikon F, JOICO microscope, and NOVAR 7×50 binoculars.
The box of candies can be yours for 1,200 yen (around $11) and a trip to Japan. Yeah, it’s one of the items only sold at the museum. You can check out the museum’s online store for some other Nikon-themed items, like this watch. But if you really have a sweet tooth, you can try making your own chocolate Nikon or baking a Nikon cake.
