Saw this at Target recently.
And I have to say, somehow or another it’s friggin’ scary looking. Something about a ginger root with a face is just plain frightening. Like Alice in Wonderland freaky. I know that it’s a root, but does it have to look like that? Ick.
What’s even more strange is that I’ve seen something similar in the asian candies and you can figure that this type of cutesy ginger root figure would be in asian packaging, but when its origins is out of Aussieland, it’s just baffling. In any case, if you’re into crystallized ginger or want something a bit whacky to try, I suggest picking up a package. Just be forewarned that the Ginger People are coming.
