We got these ice candies (popsicles) from Satoshi's staff the other week. (Thank you!)
It was made by Suzuki Shoten (shoten means shop or store). The packaging is very retro looking. They have 4 flavors--banana, calpis, milk and milk kintoki (milk with azuki). Calpis is an interesting drink that kind of looks like watered down milk with a little citrus flavoring but is really sweet.
I did a little surfing and found out that they have been in business for about 60 years and only sell 1100 of these a day. They start selling them at 5:30am and usually sell out within 2 hours! Wow!
The one that is pictured is the calpis, I also read that the banana one has actual slivers of banana in it. I can't wait to try the other flavors!
Closed Tuesdays & Wednesdays
Open from 10:00-16:00 or until everything sells out!
p.s. I forgot to mention that most bars are 60 yen (about US $.60)!
