Sweets for the deceased

Yesterday I explained about special kind of sweets that people in Japan set in front of graves, or in the room, for Buddhist ceremony. Today I took a picture of some examples which I found in the shop where I buy daily items every day.

Sweets in package, for graves

Usually they are block of dried starch paste, mixed with sugar, brightly colored.
In the picture they looked shiny. They are all packed in transparent plastic containers, in order to keep ants out.
