I recently acquired the Japanese release of BF's Slave I Mini model. When I opened the package, there was a small plastic bag with 2 white balls in the box. My best guess is that the balls are some kind of hard candy.

Has anyone else found white balls in their Japanese Lego packages? Is this the Japanese version of a stick of gum with your baseball cards?

Ah they’re probably moth balls or silicone balls. Don't eat them.
Yea, though I walk through the valley...

assuming it came in a box rather than a polybag then they will be candy as it was a promotional set by Kabaya.

Certainly, this webpage on rebelscum suggests that's what they are (based on the name of the picture linked).

Not sure they'd make good eating nowadays though, heh

Kabaya is a Japanese confectionary company that produces all kinds of candy. In this particular case its hard shell has a gummy hazelnut centre. In most cases people think that the candy a the pack-in, but in truth the exclusive Mini set was the pack-in promotion.

Consider it's age before you eat it.

Candy, specifically sugar candy, is a confection made from a concentrated solution of sugar in water, to which flavorings and colorants are added. Candies come in numerous colors and varieties and have a long history in popular culture. The word "candy" comes from Arabic qandi, derived from Persian qand, meaning "sugar."[1] In North America, candy is a broad category that includes candy bars, chocolates, licorice, sour candies, salty candies, tart candies, hard candies, taffies, gumdrops, marshmallows, and more. Vegetables, fruit or nuts glazed and coated with sugar are called candied.

Outside North America, the generic name for candy is sweets or confectionery (UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and other Commonwealth countries). In Australia and New Zealand, sweets are, in normal usage, further categorized as either chocolate or lollies (for all other non-chocolate candies).

In North America, the UK, and Australia, the word lollipop refers specifically to sugar candy on a stick. While not used in the generic sense of North America, the term candy is used in the UK for specific types of foods such as candy floss (cotton candy in North America and fairy floss in Australia), and certain other sugar based products.
