Animal Crossing: New Horizons is currently offering players another limited-time item via Nook Shopping.

As Isabelle announced on the official Animal Crossing: New Horizons Twitter account (opens in new tab), Nook Shopping is currently offering players Chitose ame aka "a type of long candy stick" for a limited time. The stick of rock-like candy is contained within a decorative bag which can traditionally be seen in Japan during Shichi-Go-San - a seasonal holiday celebrated by young children. 

To get your hands on the adorable stick of candy, take a look at the seasonal tab of the Nook Shopping portal where you can pick it up for 1,000 bells until November 20, 2021. Alongside the Chitose ame in the seasonal section of Nook Shopping, players can also still find the handheld lantern item which will, unfortunately, stop being sold after today, so get in there quick.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
