I was out with my friend Kevin and he spotted this in the candy section of Asobit in Aki.
It's not as gross as it sounds. First off, dried shredded squid basically taste like a kind of beef jerky with basically the same texture and a similar flavor. In fact I suggest you try it. Think salty meat. Add something sweet, chocolate, and you get about the same kind of flavor sensation as getting syrup on your sausage.
