Who hasn’t been intrigued by the gelatinous ChuChus in The Legend of Zelda series and wondered what they tasted like? The electrified ones, in particular, would definitely do some interesting things to your palette. Nintendo, on the other hand, is not waiting for fan demand to make these wishes come true, as they have launched one of the strangest promotions associated with a major game title in recent memory. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom may now include special ChuChu gummy snacks in its arsenal of prerelease items, which will be available in May, replete with sword-shaped picks to stab the little buggers before placing them in your mouth.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom gummies from Bandai are coming to Japan in May. You get a sword shaped pick in each package. Finally my dream of eating ChuChus has come true.

The apparent trick here is that they aren’t simply ordinary fruit snacks in a bag, but also provide the impression of beating them in combat via the pick. The sword pick comes in five distinct varieties of classic Zelda weaponry, although it is unlikely to shatter as quickly as weapons in Breath of the Wild.
The five candies in each packet are all grape-flavored, regardless of hue, which is an unusual decision and not what taste a ChuChu would be if swallowed. Fans are laughing at the campaign because it is just absurd enough to succeed. These morsels may be purchased on the Bandai website in Japan, although luckily not at a higher price than the next game.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will be released on May 12. Gamers are eager to get their hands on it, although hopefully not to consume ChuChus. The official artbook has already leaked online, and fans should proceed with caution to prevent spoilers. Fortunately, these gummies are unlikely to reveal too much.
