This is great. I like Hi Chew. I'm old and don't eat much candy anymore, but if I buy an odd pack here or there, it's usually Hi-Chew. I first heard of it when stories were going around about clubhouses trying to get it. Not long after, you could find it at Costco.

That’s a great story. Everything I’ve ever read about Tazawa he sounds like a pretty fun dude to have around.
