Okay, so I'm new here, and this might not be all that descriptive hahaha...
But, I had this candy at my japanese friend's house 8 years ago that was individually wrapped, and it was a marshmallow that instantly melted in your mouth when you popped it in. Once it was melted, there was a hard candy in the middle. It's particular flavor was strawberry, but maybe it came in different flavors. I have since lost contact with my friend at the time because she moved back to Japan so I can't ask her what it was, but it was possibly the coolest candy I've ever eaten hahaha 👍
I've been to some asian grocery stores around where I live and have found nothing :( If you could help me, that would be so great!!!
Thanks!

Try going to some Japanese sites that sell things like Japanese snacks/pocky etc. Sometimes they sell lots of different candies, one of which might be what you're looking for. Otherwise try the wonderful world of Wikipedia.org and try keywords like Japanese candy and see where it takes you.

dunno...

I don't know what candy that is, but I'm having a chocoholic attack right now. Meiji pure dark chocolate is awesome--as good or better than Hershey's or Mars. However, the only thing that will satsfy me right now is Lotte chocolate covered almonds. 👍 [But may Haagen Daz macadamia nut ice would be a good substitute. :p)

In Japan they are frequently coming out with and abandoning new products and flavors so it could have been a short-lived product.

It sounds like it's more like a marshmallow like this but with inside like the Puccho.
