Professor Layton Puzzle Break Chocolate
The brilliant archaeologist/puzzologist gets his own branded chocolate from Glico, to celebrate the impending release of the latest (and possibly last!) Layton game in Japan. I imagine Layton sitting down between puzzles, having a bit of chocolate with his cup of tea. It sounds quite nice.
The candy comes in Gateau Chocolat and Tea Chiffon Cake flavors, and includes a scratch-off card that ties into a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Legacy of Super Civilization A.
Mega Man 10 Sakuma Drops! Sakuma Drops are an old-fashioned Japanese hard candy available in various flavors, all of which come in totally sweet tins. These days, you can buy Sakuma Drops in distinctly non-candy-like flavors, including beer, monjayaki, miso ramen, and others. But the Rockman candies come in less emetic flavors like lemon, strawberry, plum, and pineapple, roughly color-coded to the game’s bosses.
If you’d like to see Sakuma Drops featured in a movie, and if you’d like to cry and cry, check out Grave of the Fireflies. You will cry, though. If you’ve seen the movie, you might be crying now from just the mention of it.

“DSi Toast” by Horse Holly.
(Hello everyone, this is Matt Hawkins, aka “fort90”! I’m that guy with the long-ass (and blue) blog posts that sometimes gets mentioned around here [along with the occasional Tweet, GSW article, or anything else that might catch the fancy of the two dudes here]. Anyhow, Eric’s getting some much deserved R&R and I’ve been asked, along with a few other fine folks, to help fill his shoes! So with that in mind… care for something to eat?)
The above is the aptly titled “DSi Toast” by an individual who calls him or herself Horse Holly. Unfortunately, if you check out the artist’s other works, you will not find a cruller resembling a PSP, I’m afraid.
Next is a selection of delectable and flat-out super cute looking confectionaries based upon the feline helpers from Monster Hunter (not only do cats help in the midst of battle, by distracting a creature so you can hone in on the weak spot unhindered, but they also provide assistance with more menial tasks, like lugging equipment around and cooking). And of course, it’s only available in Japan, from gourmet chocolate peddler Poire, for this month only.
