As long as we have been selling Japanese Erasers, the Fried Rice Japanese Eraser always was the same yellow color. In the shipment we received today, as we unpacked the Japanese erasers, much to our surprise, the Fried Rice Japanese Eraser had a new color. The rice was red. This red color is not really new. Iwako has made the red color in the past, and they are producing this color again. We suspect when the yellow color Fried Rice Japanese Erasers are gone, we will not see them again in the near future.
