Hotaru no Haka
(Grave of the Fireflies)
What's so special about the candy that Setsuko carries?
Morinaga Drops are some of the most common candies that you can get in Japan. They come in a small tin can exactly as seen in the movie. If you leave the can open for too long in Japan's humid climate, the drops will get sticky such that the only way to get them out would be to shake the can furiously to break the candies apart or to bang the can against something.
