Do you recognize these distinctive poses? Yes, they’re from a well-known manga/anime called Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. For those who don’t know, "Jojo" is a series that started way back in 1986 and has been serialized into over 100 volumes. It has been adapted into anime and even live-action movies and continues to be very popular in Japan and elsewhere.

"Jojo" fans with a sweet tooth, rejoice!

I have good news for "Jojo" fans. Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean and the popular candy shop, Papabubble, have collaborated!

Papabubble originated in Spain and became famous for their cute artisanal candies. Previous collaborations include popular anime franchises such as Evangelion. They are also particularly well-known for producing seasonal candies such as new year, Halloween, and Christmas candies.

Let’s take a look at what they have created for this collaboration!


First is JOJO MIX (JOJOミックス)! Five flavors are in this package: chocolate, peach, pineapple, raspberry, soda, and orange. The price is 797 JPY (tax included) and it weighs 40g. It also comes with an original shopping bag!

Let’s look at the candy design.

The designs are very intricate and detailed! Can you guess which design matches which flavor? According to the illustration below the photo, the butterfly on the left is chocolate flavor, the pink and red candy is peach, the purple lips are pineapple, the white one in the middle is raspberry, the drink icon is soda, and the baseball is orange!

Seems like the colors don’t match their implied flavors. Does the blue butterfly really have a chocolate flavor? I bet a lot of you are asking that question, but don’t worry! I’ve tried other Papabubble candies and they always have flavors that are hard to imagine. The gap between their appearance and their flavor is one of the unique charms of the brand.

JOJO candy pouch set

This is the "Jojo Candy Pouch Set." It comes in a clear plastic pouch containing two 40 g packs of candy. The first pack is JOJO MIX B with strawberry-, soda-, apple-, pear-, and cherry-flavored candies. The second pack is JOLYNE MIX in the theme of protagonist Jolyne Cujoh (空条徐倫), with apple mint-, grape-, cola-, lime-, and lemon-flavored candies. The price is 2,000 JPY, tax included, and comes in a Papabubble clear pouch, an original paper bag, and a shiny sticker.

Both offerings are available at the following stores*:

Daimaru Tokyo, Lumine Est Shinjuku, Lucua Osaka, Sendai Parco, Fukuoka, Meieki (Nagoya station), Sapporo Stellar Place, Yokohama, Chiba, Namba Parks, Saitama Shintoshin.

*Unfortunately, the Jojo Candy Pouch Set is already sold out on the online shop but the JOJO MIX is still available at there at the time of writing.

The following shops are also displaying special character panels from the franchise: Daimaru Tokyo, Lumine Est Shinjuku, Lucua Osaka, Sendai Parco, Fukuoka, Meieki, Sapporo Stellar Place, Chiba, Saitama Shintoshin.

Each shop is featuring a different character.

If you're a "Jojo" fan, you'll surely want to take pictures with your fave when you visit!
