Japanese Konpeito “Salt” Candy

Size Guide

Made with Famed SOLASHIO Sea Salt

For the Benesse Art Site Naoshima

Konpeitō, also spelled kompeitō, is Japanese sugar candy. They come in a variety of colors and flavors. Ours is a pure and simple white candy made with Naoshima's exquisite SOLASHIO sea salt.

Salt candy? It is quite subtle and tasty. If you don't believe us believe the Imperial House of Japan. Konpeitō is the Imperial family's standard thank-you-for-coming gift.

We discovered SOLASHIO (sun salt) fine Japanese sea salt when staying at Benesse House art museum and hotel on Naoshima. We picked up a bag to sample. It's a gorgeous finishing salt that SOLASHIO uses for their konpeitō
