Japan is, fortunately, doing nothing to cure me of my love of Halloween candy. Behold, Apple Pie Kit Kats, which I understand are available in the U.S. They were a novelty for me and so good. I’d swear they taste warm.

Kimetsu no Yaiba is massively popular around here. Everywhere I go there are cards, stationary, stickers, candy, cookies—anything that can have an Kimetsu no Yaiba image stuck on it. Being a series about demons it seems to fit nicely among the Halloween candy.
