Bourbon Fettuccine: Al Dente Pasta-like Gummy Candy
Today I went to a drugstore near my house to buy foodstuffs when I craved something sour-sweet, and I headed to its snack and candy section and grabbed a bag of gummy candy called Fettuccine.
Bourbon Fettuccine Gummies
Fettuccine is a popular gummy candy produced and sold by the Japanese confectionery maker Bourbon (ブルボン), whose head office is in Niigata Prefecture, where I live.
Why the Fettuccine gummy candy has gained popularity in Japan probably comes from its addictive al dente pasta-like texture; these gummies are soft on the outside but quite chewy on the inside.
These treats have a pleasant chew and a good taste, like Kanro’s Candemina. The gummi is juicy with the right amount of sugar, to which the white particles on the surface add a nice refreshing tartness.
In addition to Cola flavor, Bourbon Fettuccine is currently (as of May 1, 2023) available in Italian Grape, Italian Lemon, Seedy Strawberry, and Soda flavors, based on the official site.
