Sweets in 7-11 (Taipei)

I'm such a sucker for packaging and Taipei (like Japan) is just soooo good at it. Its like nothing to them, its like breathing. As a result, a trip to the convenience store is like letting me loose in Disney land. So many things to see and buy, just due to the packaging alone!!!

Just look at that!!! Traditional sweets in a postal box packaging with the yellow tape just like back in the old days. Miniature size!!!! Darn it!
