Faux sushi? Oh heck yeah! I’ve actually tried this sushi candy in the video below, but my end result ended up looking more like a mis-shapen wad of gum. Watch the pro:

If you’re not into the geeky sushi, you can make them out of rice crispies and fruit roll-ups like Mommy Knows. Sugar me out, baby!

    Wow, this is so cool!
    I never knew they made candy sushi πŸ˜€
    Just want to ask, how did the one you tried from the first video taste?
    Cause I am not sure I would like to taste that one πŸ˜›

    Wow! This is really interesting. Though I’m half japanese, I never knew such a thing existed. I certainly learn something new everyday. Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

    OK, I just looked at the video… and is it me or did it feel a little like “Easy Bake Oven”, except nothing was baked. I think I prefer the twinkie/rice crispie/donut versions, using gummy fish and fruit roll-ups than that strange powdery gelatinous stuff!
