As for their long-sellers, Marble Chocolate is known as Japan’s first grain chocolate, Karl is Japan’s first snack, and this Chelsea has long been a favorite through the generations.
Meiji released Chelsea in 1971. At the time, the maker organized a project team to create a new type of hard candy that hadn’t been around in Japan.
The team researched various kinds of treats from many countries and reached butterscotch from Scotland.
Based on that Scotch candy, Meiji made Chelsea into a product. For that, the company also adopted a bold, sophisticated package design, which was unprecedented.
Meiji Chelsea comes in 3 flavors; From the left, Yogurtscotch, Butterscotch, and Coffeescotch, whose taste is somewhat different from the original enjoyed in Scotland.
But these treats have a unique deliciousness, and each flavor is nicely mellow and pleasantly creamy.
