Fujiya Milky: Best Japanese Condensed Milk Candy
Well-known for its mascot character, Peko-Chan (ペコちゃん), Fujiya (不二家) is a long-established Japanese food company founded in 1910.
Initially, the maker created Pekochan as a fictional young girl character for the product Fujiya Milky, released in 1951.
Fujiya Milky consists of sweetened condensed milk candies with a hard, chewy texture, individually wrapped in colorful lovely paper wrappers.
As seen in the picture, you can easily take the white milk candy out of the paper by pulling both sides of the wrapper.
It is said that the maker developed the Milky Candy so mothers can give sweets to their children without worries.
Specifically, based on the official site of Fujiya, the Milky Candy has features as follows.
- The maker uses fresh cream from Hokkaido for the milk candy to enrich its taste.
- The candy is free from artificial flavorings and colors.
- The maker uses Mt.Fuji’s natural water in the production process.
- The maker prepares carefully selected starch syrup for the candy, which makes its aftertaste refreshing.
Fujiya Milky is literally so milky but not overly sweet. Once putting the candy in your mouth, you’ll find it hard.
But the candy ball gradually gets softer and melts away. Its taste is so good that many people love it (together with these treats) here in Japan!
