We try Metal Gear Solid cardboard box candy at TGS


And it’s not good

Yes, they really have Metal Gear Solid The Phantom Pain cardboard box candy at Tokyo Game Show 2014. We were stupid enough to spend 640 yen (about $6) on eight pieces of what looks to be tiny squares of chocolate crisped rice cakes.

As you could imagine, the candy is not worth $6. It’s dry and bland. Bad aftertaste, too. But the cardboard box it came in is great, as is the included sticker.

You can see my first impressions in the Vine below.

Thanks, Kojima.
