Musings about Japan and life as a human, a cosplayer, a minority, a music lover, an English teacher.

Glamatic Fairy

A few months ago I saw a TV segment in which two guys were investigating little secrets about certain food products. One example was some type of crispy ring-shaped snacks, and how one person found a ring in the shape of “Ojisan”. In another case, a girl found a single star-shaped mint in her case of mints, which are usually circle-shaped. Another case featured a rare, trumpet-playing Koala printed on the popular chocolate-filled Koala crackers.

This is what I thought of when I uncovered this piece of Glamatic gum yesterday. As I unwrapped the piece, I noticed one side was sticking lightly to the wrapper. I didn’t think much of it until I saw a white spot…in the shape of a fairy.

It’s not a coincidence. Apparently some companies do this on purpose, though I’m not sure why. I think some people take it as a sign of good luck. This was from one of the many packs of gum that I won at the game center a few months back, so my chances of getting a special piece of gum like this was greater than if I had just one pack.

I wonder what I should do with it. Sugar doesn’t really spoil, so I guess I can just hold on to it.
