Kracie Super Soda Gum with Fizz Powder Inside
Soda candy is popular with children, and here in Japan, it comes in many forms, including chewing gum.
And what I introduce here, Super Soda Gum (スーパーソーダガム) is one of the representatives.
Kracie Super Soda Gum
Super Soda Gum is a block of chewing gum produced and sold by Kracie Foods and was one of my favorite treats as a kid.
It hit the shelves in 1973, known as Japan’s first fizzy chewing gum with effervescent powder inside.
As you can see in the photo above, this chewing gum has a powder in the center, which consists of baking soda and acidifiers.
In 2012, Kracie celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Super Soda Gum series and increased the amount of fizz powder by 2.4 times.
In addition, the gum has a larger size now, weighing as much as 7 grams.
It has a pleasantly chewy texture, and the taste is yummy; The fizziness of the powder inside is quite addictive, making children excited.
