Bandai releasing Pokemon fossil candies in Japan
It's okay to play with this food
Bandai has released many a confectionary Pokémon treat in their day, but the company is cooking up something really special in their latest product. In collaboration with a Pokémon Fossil Museum Event, Bandai is releasing fossilized Pokémon versions of its kyarapaki candy starting March 15th, 2022 at select Pokémon Centers, and then April 2022 at all retailers.
These Pokémon kyarapaki candies come in the following 8 varieties:
- Bastiodon (Level 1)
- Carracosta (Level 1)
- Rampardos (Level 1)
- Aurorus (Level 2)
- Tyrantrum (Level 2)
- Aerodactyl (Level 3)
- Archeops (Level 3)
- Kabutops (Level 3)
Wondering what the levels next to each candy mean? The levels indicate how challenging it is to “extract” each Pokémon fossil from the candy, with Level 3 being the toughest. As the candy is made out of milk and white chocolate, I can’t imagine any of these fossils will be all that hard to extract.
Damn, Japan gets all the cool stuff.

My kids love these (the whole fossil chocolate series has been around forever). It's supposed to also be a game of delicacy, trying to break away the dark chocolate from without breaking the bones 👍
