Jan 14th 2019 | Fish Apple Potato Plum
Ume Soft Candy
Ume is a Japanese plum. A delicacy in Japan, it has a very sour taste. These soft plum candies are chewy— just as the random bit of English text on the packaging says. They have a sweetly powdered outer layer and a very sour core. It's a refined taste that isn't for everyone, but you'll love them if you love sour candies.
Morinaga Oishiku Mogu Mogu Taberu Choco Apple
The name of this candy literally means “Tasty Yum Yum Chocolate” because Japan doesn't beat around the bush. The package also boasts that it's not sticky or messy like other chocolate. The taste itself is a fusion of different ingredients— including apple. It's a unique and almost mature taste. This candy is definitely trying to set itself apart from candies for kids.
These crispy snacks from Calbee use a mix of steamed and baked Anno sweet potatoes and have an absolutely delicious taste. Anno sweet potatoes are seasonal and are very sweet sweet potatoes. That means these snacks are also seasonal. They're only available during winter!
Meito Kuroi Puku Puku Taiyaki
Taiyaki is a Japanese pastry that's shaped and named after a tai. These popular snacks take the taiyaki concept but turn it into a sweet, crispy, and airy wafer. There are tons of flavors out there, but this extra dark taiyaki is filled with bitter caramel and chocolate.
