Your fave childhood treats Meiji Apollo and Haw Haw, reimagined as desserts and drinks

haw haw meiji apollo candy-flavored desserts

Every day, we ask the universe to take us back to our childhood, the days where everything was much simpler. But since this is somehow an impossible request (unless someone finally invents time travel), perhaps a way to feel some sort of semblance to those “better days” would be to reconnect with things that remind us of them. 

For some, it might be a hobby they used to enjoy or a television or movie that they loved—but for me, it would be getting my hands into candies that remind me of my childhood. While you can enjoy these treats as is, you can also look for its reimagined versions, which are just as good, too. Here are some candy-flavored treats that you can get for delivery right now.

Hands up if you are a fan of Japanese sweets, especially from Meiji (because same!). We’d always remember how a pack of its Mt. Fuji-shaped strawberry chocolates called Apollo and milk chocolate pellets called Choco Baby were a staple in our elementary lunch boxes. Now, these candies are being brought to our WFH lunch boxes as cheesecakes by home based business Desserts and Pastries by Hizon’s.

Peter’s Butter Ball ice cream


The Lost Bread and Arce Dairy keep on making us reminisce about our childhood days with their frozen creations. Another famous candy they’ve turned into ice cream is this butterscotch-flavored hard candy ball that ’90s kids may know as Peter’s Butter Ball. Its ice cream version from The Lost Bread and Arce Dairy highlights the taste of real Butter Ball candy bits with its caramel flavor.
