This Handmade Sakura Candy is made exclusively for Bokksu! Sakura in Japan symbolizes ephemerality and the fleeting quality of life. Like the sakura that fades away at the end of the season, this candy dissolves lightly on the palette. Sweet and floral, cherry blossoms are harvested and prepared by pickling and drying the flowers in salt. This traditional method preserves the vibrant color and flavor of sakura, which makes it perfect for candy and is why this Handmade Sakura Candy contains real bits of preserved sakura!
