Meiji Chelsea – Long-Seller Japanese Scotch Candy with Unique Flavor

Meiji is a leading Japanese confectionery company with over 100 years of history, so the maker has a wide range of long-selling items from chocolate to gummy candies.

If I give some examples of such products produced by Meiji, “Meiji Marble Chocolate” is famous as the first grain chocolate in Japan, “Meiji Kurl” is the Japan’s first “Snack”, and “Meiji Hi Lemon” I introduced the other day is also a long-seller.Speaking of Meiji’s long-selling hard candies, Meiji Chelsea is a representative.

Meiji Chelsea was released in 1971.At that time, Meiji organized a project team to create a new type of unique and tasty hard candy that hadn’t been around in Japan until then.The team did research on various kinds of candies from around the world, and it reached butterscotch from Scotland.

Based on the scotch candy, Meiji Chelsea was made into a product.Thus the Meiji’s long-selling hard candy is said to be a Japanese scotch candy.Meiji also adopted an unique, bold design with a sophisticated impression for Chelsea, which was unprecedented.

Meiji Chelsea is different in flavor from original butterscotch, and it has a quite unique taste that you never get tired of.Since I used to eat the Japanese scotch candy a lot in my childhood, the taste makes me feel nostalgic.Just like I loved the scotch candy, if you try eating it once, you will also become addicted.
