1.Rainbow Cotton Candy

This is probably the top of the top “Harajuku Girls” sweets on our list, for they’re not just a pretty delight, but they taste amazing too. You’ve probably had cotton candy in the past, maybe at the fir or the circus, and it probably tasted the same, that generic, sugary flavor. Well take that idea and throw it out the door. In Harajuku, at the Totti Candy Factory, you can get different, distinct cotton candy flavors, some of them even tasting like Ramune, the famous Japanese soda. For 900 yen, you can get a huge cotton candy to eat. If you’re shopping with a partner, consider the heart option. It’s a great one to consider if you’re in the area, and you’ll definitely not want to miss this.

5.Calbee Fries

Calbee Fries

 Calbee Fries 2

Finally, you’ve got Calbee fries, which are more for the snack fiends rather than the ones with the sweet tooth. You’ve probably seen these in the convenience stores, but these are different in Harajuku. You can get them fresh, and in many different flavors. You can order these regular flat style, or sticks style, with various toppings, including sour cream and cheese. If you want to try it with something sweet, you can order it with ice cream on the side too. I recommend getting the Hokkaido soft serve, since it goes best with the product itself.
