Help! Unknown gift from Tokyo. What am I eating?

Jump to last reply

My husband was given a gift of some crystallised fruit? in Japan which I believe are similar to marrons glaces.
I have yellow and dark brown 'lumps' similar to the picture shown on the website. The yellow pieces seem sweeter but they both have the texture of horse chestnuts inside.

Here's the website

I also have some sake which after a far amount of googling I've determined is 'bombastic'! :)
