Konpeitō (also spelled Konpeito, or Kompeitō) is a Japanese sugar candy made with a technique introduced in Japan in the early 16th century by Portuguese traders. The process to refine large amounts of sugar at that time was rarely practice, making konpeito a luxurious treat.
- word “konpeito” comes from the Portuguese word confeito, which means a sugar candy
- 1569 - a Portuguese missionary presented a glass of konpeito to Oda Nobunaga (leader of the unified Japan of the shogunate in 16th century) in order to obtain the permit for mission work of Christianity
By the Meiji period, konpeito had become one of the standard Japanese sweets of the culture.
The above gif with Hayao Miyazaki’s soot spirits (makurokurosuke, or susuwatari) were seen to be happily eating the konpeito candy in the movie Spirited Away (Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi). Konpeito were seen as whimsical and would be paired with faeries, so Miyazaki gave konpeito to his whimsical soot characters.
You’d try it wouldn’t you.
that’s the show
