Anya Forger Gets Her Own (Expressive) Mochi Candy

The original anime movie SPY×FAMILY CODE: White is out now in Japan, and special new Anya Forger candy is out now in the Japanese convenience store chain Lawson. There are seven different possible Anyas you can get, and each one has a different — and very expressive — face.

These candies were created by Bandai Candy’s Tabemas line and cost 285 yen (approximately $2) per piece. Her candy face was created using milk-flavored mochi, but her hair was created using strawberry-flavored anko, which is from red bean paste. (Though since Anya loves peanuts, maybe she ought to get some sort of peanut butter flavored candy?)

As undoubtedly the most popular character in a very popular franchise, Anya has been used for other merchandise before. For instance, you can get your own Anya Forger Tamagotchi, so that you can raise her instead of her adoptive parents Loid and Yor.

Anya has also helped advertise the series, including being a giant 3D advertisement at the Cross Shinjuku Vision 3D billboard in Tokyo, where she could be seen peeking out at people.

Most recently we’ve been paying attention to the SPYxANYA: Operation Memories game, which has been released in Japan and will come out in America sometime next year.

Crunchyroll is currently streaming the first two seasons of SPY x FAMILY, and will be releasing SPY×FAMILY CODE: White in North American theaters sometime next year. It gave this description for the anime series’ plot:

World peace is at stake and secret agent Twilight must undergo his most difficult mission yet—pretend to be a family man. Posing as a loving husband and father, he’ll infiltrate an elite school to get close to a high-profile politician. He has the perfect cover, except his wife’s a deadly assassin and neither knows each other’s identity. But someone does, his adopted daughter who’s a telepath!
