Otoko Ume Gummy: Addicting Umeboshi Candy from Nobel
You can see various kinds of sour gummy candies at supermarkets and convenience stores in Japan.
Although those gummies all get lumped together as sour gummy, the taste varies. For example, the one with Ume plum or Umeboshi flavor is unique to Japan.
Umeboshi candy, including this Nobel Otoko Ume Gummy, is quite different in sourness and acidity from the one with a lemon flavor.
Nobel Otoko Ume Gummy Candy
Otoko Ume Gummy (男梅グミ) is from Nobel’s Otoko Ume (男梅) line with a wide range of Umeboshi-flavored products, including this Ame (hard) candy.
At first glance, the Otoko Ume Gummy Candy looks strange and unusual, but the outer appearance is because of a coating of Umeboshi particles.
The saltiness and sourness of this gummy candy mostly come from the covering, and when you wash it away, the color turns crimson.
The taste of the coating is not so intense, and it adds depth to the crimson candy inside, which is a sweet plum-flavored hard gummy.
The combination of the two is unlike any other and will make you addicted if you like Umeboshi plums.
