Kokonotsu Shikada wants to be a manga artist, but his father Yō forces him to inherit the family's dagashi shop. At that time, a beautiful and eccentric girl named Hotaru Shidare comes to their home and asks Yō to work at her family's candy developer. Yō refuses because he couldn't leave the shop if Kokonotsu doesn't want to inherit the shop. Thus, Hotaru decided to stay until Kokonotsu agreed to inherit the shop. Later, Kokonotsu meets the Endō twins - Tō and Saya - at their cafe and tells them about Hotaru without mentioning her name. Saya later meets Hotaru in person without knowing she's the one that Kokonotsu mentioned earlier.

Hotaru arrives at the Shikada shop (san Yō) and continues her eccentric and sexually oblivious sweets-related behavior, culminating with her passing out from drinking a non-alcoholic candy beer mix. Kokonotsu later meets with Saya and Hotaru meets up with them while playing with candy that can also function as a whistle. She then spins a tale relating to the snack; Saya believes it is nonsense, but Kokonotsu catches on that it is allegorical and also implies that Hotaru's ditzy antics may not be completely sincere. Saya defuses the situation when she imagines all the sweets she could get for free if Kokonotsu were to succeed the shop. The three then play Menko into the evening as Saya stuns both Kokonotsu and Hotaru with instances of beginner's luck.

Hotaru, along with Tō, arrive at the shop on a rather hot day and decide to boil water inside the shop in order to make butamen. While Hotaru insists that eating the snack in sweltering heat is the best way to enjoy it, Tō admits to Kokonotsu that he's only here to fantasize about Hotaru while she sensually eats the snack. Once the air conditioning breaks and Kokonotsu tells Hotaru that some dagashi might go bad due to the heat, the three decide to go to the pool while Tō contacts Saya about the meetup. Kokonotsu and Tō meet Yō (moonlighting as a lifeguard) and the girls at the pool; it is then revealed that Yō and Hotaru conspired the pool meeting in an effort to once again bring Kokonotsu closer to sweets. The plan backfires, however, when dagashi planted by the pair in the pool cannot be eaten because of a "No Food or Drink" sign they forgot to remove. The next day, Hotaru arrives at the shop to find Tō but no Kokonotsu, who is busy moving dagashi that might have gone bad from yesterday. Hotaru attempts to strike up a conversation with Tō about dagashi, but mistakes his aloofness towards the subject as a challenge. This culminates with Hotaru fast-balling candy into Tō's mouth as Kokonotsu stumbles upon the scene with no context and an air-conditioning repair crew. Kokonotsu makes Hotaru stay with Saya at the cafe shop and the two hit it off.

January 28, 2016 (2016-01-28)
Kokonotsu arrives at the shop to find Hotaru blindfolded. She challenges him to a blind taste test using various flavors of fugashi; she also includes the stipulation that the taster has to have their hands tied behind their back so as to not cheat by identifying the snack just based on texture. The two guess each flavor fed to them correctly, but Kokonotsu tries to trick Hotaru with a rare flavor of fugashi when the ones they were tasting run out. Much to his dismay, she still guesses it correctly. When it is Kokonotsu's turn, however, Hotaru complains of dry mouth and runs off to buy a drink, leaving him blindfolded and tied up. Yō, unluckily, returns to the shop before Hotaru and incorrectly infers the situation. Afterwards, Tō and Kokonotsu meet up at Cafe Endō. Tō notices Kokonotsu's doodles of the girls and literally draws attention to the difference in their breast size. Upon returning to the sweets shop, Kokonotsu bumps into Hotaru and realizes he left his notebook with the drawings at the shop. Hotaru, sensing Kokonotsu's predicament, tosses him a box of Glico caramel as the two use the kilocalories in the candy to race back to the cafe as fast as they can. Hotaru, however, runs out of candy and energy when the two are 300 meters away; Hotaru offers him her last piece as she collapses from exhaustion. As Kokonotsu makes it to the cafe, he unfortunately meets Saya already looking at the doodles.

Kokonotsu interrupts his father and Hotaru enjoying binramune late at night. While Hotaru explains the oddities of the dagashi, Kokonotsu comments on the apparent addictiveness of the snack, especially after watching Yō greedily drink it despite the fact it is supposed to be for sale. The two decide to make themselves right while Kokonotsu goes back to bed. Sometime later (1:30 am), Kokonotsu is once again reawakened, this time by his father making food vlogs; Yō states that he's doing it to make money from YouTube's ad reveune, but also admits to only having 13 views in total among his videos. When Kokonotsu decides to watch his father record, he sees that he reads from a script and doesn't have much to say about Baby Star Ramen; he decides to help by naming facts about the dagashi's origins, mascots and naming convention without realizing that the webcam is still recording. This ends up netting the video over 100 views. Later, Hotaru drops by after hearing that Kokonotsu & Tō are broke. She introduces them to prizes located inside packages of yattamen, even though the prizes function more as coupons rather than yen and that Hotaru goes through several without winning anything. She confesses that she's actually never won a candy prize in her life, but nonetheless introduces the boys to the "Sour Grape challenge". This involves a three-pack of grape-flavored gum with one of them being extremely sour; the person who eats the sour one has to do something for the winners. Hotaru believes she has the boys beat due to the gum's packaging giving away which one is the sour one, but she realizes she purchased a pack with new packaging upon double-checking it. The three eat a piece and Hotaru loses. Kokonotsu tries to encourage a dejected Hotaru by saying that her rotten luck could be seen as a type of talent. Regardless, Hotaru runs off in frustration before Kokonotsu & Tō realize she never upheld her part of the deal.

Hotaru invites the three to a temple to try to discuss Super Himo Q, a dagashi resembling a elongated gummi worm. Tō interrupts her with a different dagashi, Maken gummies (a pun on jan-ken). He opens the package to find that he has the Paa (paper) version of the candy and then, noticing the similarities to the stretchy hand toy and with a confirming glare from Hotaru, decides to play a prank. He purposefully flips his sister's skirt up, angering Saya and causing her to punch him and send him several meters away. Hotaru tends gets back on the subject of Super Himo Q and demonstrates the different ways one can play with it. This leads to a modified game of tug of war between her and Kokonotsu in order to determine the succession of the shop. The game ends with a draw, so Hotaru moves on and tells Kokonotsu and Saya about the history of the dagashi's length while using it as nunchaku. The wild flinging causes a piece to snap off and fly into the air; Kokonotsu instinctively gives chase, grabs it with his mouth and lands on top of Tō. The four then decide to play Ohajiki in order to settle the succession matter. When Saya once again shows proficiency in a game she's never played, Hotaru brings the possibility of Saya working at the Shikada shop. She turns red at the thought as she stares at Kokonotsu. Later on, with Hotaru at last place, she pulls out a trump card, the forbidden ohajiki. It, unfortunately, slips from her hand and shatters once it hits the ground, leaving her in tears. The next day, Saya thinks about Hotaru's offer. She thinks back to a time when her and Kokonotsu were younger and played doctor with Yoguret, a nutritional dagashi that comes in a blister pack. Saya checked Kokonotsu's temperature with a hand on the forehead, but pushed him back when they made eye contact and insisted on him being doctor instead. Saya then tried to use the situation to get Kokonotsu to touch her body, but he obliviously prescribed "medicine" each time and sends her on her way. When they moved on to pretend surgery, Kokonotsu gave Saya the last piece of Yoguret as an anesthetic and sadly released he had no more left. When she tried to comfort him, they both fell over and locked hands. In the present day, Saya shakes off the embarrassing memory, comments that Kokonotsu's probably forgotten it by now and resumes her walk to the Shikada shop. Hotaru tends introduces today's dagashi, Yoguret; both Kokonotsu and Saya look away from each other in embarrassment and Saya darts off. She expresses some relief in the fact that Kokonotsu still remembers.

Later, after receiving inspiration from a YouTube video, Tō buys a pair of kendama for him and Kokonotsu to try to master. After failing repeatedly, Saya shows up and effortlessly juggles the ball while also revealing that Tō already had a few kendama back home, solidifying his ineptitude with the toy.

She continues to eat but the fizzy reaction of Watapachi ends up irritating her ulcer. Later, Saya notices a dagashi she's never seen before. Hotaru tells her about the Un-Choco, whose name and method of dispersal remind Saya of defecation. When Saya tries to hint at it, Hotaru misunderstands and assumes that Saya is insinuating that the dagashi's appeal is outside of their age bracket. After having a few of the grape and chocolate-flavored candies, Hotaru then wants to talk about the dagashi's innuendo, only to mistake it as eggs instead of feces. About two hours later, Kokonotsu arrives at the shop to find Hotaru eating rice and Saya having gone back home. Hotaru reveals that she is from Osaka and often represses her kansai dialect. After a discussion about Sakura Daikon and the fact that some dagashi are region-specific, Hotaru leaves and reveals that she lied about her origins. She then returns to ask Kokonotsu if he likes boobs. He lies, believing that this is a trick questions, but changes his answer once Hotaru starts to walk out. Hotaru then introduces Egg Ice Cream, but she and Kokonotsu have a disagreement of whether to colloquially call it Boob Ice Cream or Bomb Ice Cream, respectively. She then decides to eat hers, causing the warm ice cream to explode all over her body.

Much to their surprise, they find a bedridden Hotaru who refuses to eat any kind of dagashi Kokonotsu brought with him as gifts for her and, after some inquiring, she reveals that her mouth ulcer had worsened. She wanted to get better in time to eat a new flavor of Baby Star Ramen that was about to be released. She also reveals that she decided to follow Tō's advice to stop eating dagashi at all to help her recuperation, but this triggers some withdrawal symptoms that lead her to attack Kokonotsu to claim the dagashi he brought.

Sometime later, Kokonotsu and Hotaru sit and wait for the next available train at a train station. To kill time, the two enjoy some Miyako Kombu and Ramune (the latter of which Kokonotsu inadvertently doesn't get to drink) that Hotaru brought while she tells the stories of both of their origins.
