What is chichi dango?

"Dango" is a Japanese word for "dumpling." They are typically made from rice flour and come in different flavors. Nisshodo Candy Store specializes in chichi dango which is a lightly sweet, chewy type of dango eaten as a treat or dessert.


Kinako dango is a variation of chichi dango coated in roasted soy bean powder. Nisshodo Candy Store makes these traditional Japanese candies according to a time-honored recipe handed down for generations. Each piece is individually wrapped.
