Candy can make special sushi

Published 12:00 am Sunday, March 2, 2014

SOUTH POINT — Raw fish may turn some off, but most people will find this kind of sushi far more palatable.

Starting at 4 p.m. Monday at the South Point branch of the Briggs Lawrence County Library, teens will learn how to make candy sushi.

“We are taking different kinds of candy and putting them all together to look like sushi,” Rachel Webb, young adult librarian, said. “The goal is to have fun.”

Ingredients will be Peeps, Fruit Roll-ups, Swedish Fish, Rice Krispies Treats and Twizzlers.

“We are going to tie it in with graphic novels and Manga, which are Japanese comics,” Webb said. “They are pretty popular with teens.

The hourlong class is geared for youth aged 13 to 18.

Other classes to make the sushi will be 4 p.m. Tuesday at the Chesapeake branch; 5 p.m. Thursday at Proctorville; 5 p.m. March 10 at Ironton and 3 p.m. March 11 at Symmes Valley.

Registration is not required, but encouraged.

Later in March will be classes by Webb to make a hand lotion scrub out of dish liquid and sugar. Those classes will be 5 p.m. March 17 at Ironton; 4 p.m. March 18 at Chesapeake; 4 p.m. March 24 at South Point; 3 p.m. March 25 at Symmes Valley; and 5 p.m. March 27 at Proctorville.
