tuesday-johnson:

This has nothing to do with history, but I thought maybe some of you can help with my desperate candy search. So, growing up in the woods, I have this intense love and nostalgia for anything pine. Because I live in the city, pine sap collection is hampered and pine candy making experiments not really an option. The resulting fruitless search for pine flavored anything was dismaying.
That being said, I was recently suggested this Korean candy, Melland Pine Needles, but can’t seem to find it in my local oriental market, let alone online.
Any of you seen this around? If yes, message me!
*bonus: I’m totally into that fancy pine flavored drink as well.
