Rock Candy of a Different Sort

We all like Mega Man here, or as he's known in Japan, "Rockman." Or at least, one would think so; if not, we can only assume that this is your first time experiencing the wide world of the Blue Bomber, so we welcome you and hope you'll enjoy your stay. Now, where was I? Ah, yes: we all like Rockman, and odds are we all like candy. Which is why we are fortunate enough to be able to experience the union of super fighting robots and the fun, fruity flavors of the iconic Japanese hard confection known as "Sakuma Drops."

To commemorate the release of Rockman 10, Capcom has partnered with Sakuma Drops to present "Rockman Sakuma Drops." These candy pieces come in eight flavors: melon, mint, orange, plum, pine, strawberry, lemon, and apple, each of which is meant to correspond with one of the special weapons our hero obtains in the game upon defeating a Robot Master. Plus, the promotional material says that they will help you to "prepare for the Roboenza outbreak."

Rockman Sakuma Drops will be available in Japan on March 6th, 2010, and cost 350 Yen, or roughly $3.92 USD. And naturally, it is our duty as fans to pester Capcom into making these more readily and easily available to us gaijin-types.

To the suggestion box! Because we must experience the taste of pine candy!
