Kompeito Japanese candy from Spirited Away?

jillkehler Sep 18, 2011 07:34 PM

Anyone know where a person could find the kompeito/konpeito candy from the Japanese anime movie Spirited Away? Apparently it's still authentically hand-made to this day, as it's the only way to make the candy. Something about a molecular process....
It's the candy that's fed to the little soot balls in the boiler room of the bathhouse. Small colourful sugary star-shaped candies.
I would love to get my hands on some of this! Surprised I haven't found any info on this site actually... but hopefully this thread will spark some conversation.
