Otoko Ume Gummy : Nobel’s Popular Sour Umeboshi Candy
Various kinds of sour gummy candies are available at supermarkets and convenience stores in Japan. They all get lumped together as sour gummy candies, but those gummies are quite varied.
For example, when it comes to the sour gummy candy unique to Japan, I think the one with Ume plum flavor, or Umeboshi flavor, is the quintessential Japanese gummy candy.
As the gummy candy with Umeboshi flavor is quite different in acidity from the one with a lemon flavor, if you want to try out sour gummy candies that are different than usual, the sour Umeboshi candy with a Japanese taste can be a recommended item for you.
Nobel Otoko Ume Gummy Candy
If you really want to taste an authentic Umeboshi-flavored gummy candy, or the gummy candy with Japanese pickled Ume plums, there is a popular Japanese gummy candy that is worth a try. Actually today, I have the sour Umeboshi-flavored gummy candy.
It is Nobel Otoko Ume gummy candy (Amazon.com) that I picked up this time for this blog article. This Japanese gummy candy is a product from Nobel’s popular “Otoko Ume (男梅)” series. As the series name indicates, the Nobel Otoko Ume series is well-known for its line-up of products with a sour Umeboshi flavor, including this hard candy (Amazon.com).
The Otoko Ume gummy candy looks weird and unusual, but this is because the gummy is coated with Umeboshi powder.
If you wash away the reddish brown Ume plum powder on the surface, the color of the gummy candy turns crimson. Actually, the saltiness and sourness of this gummy candy mostly come from the coating.
Despite that, the Ume plum coating is neither so salty nor so sour. Instead, it has a deep flavor of Umeboshi plum (Amazon.com).
As for the inner candy, in addition to being pretty hard in texture, it is also rich in Umeboshi flavor, so the more you chew it, the more the flavor and the umami come out.
The bag has a zipper so it is convenient for preservation and carrying.
When you see the description on the back of the bag, you can find the ingredient list of this gummy candy. According to that, the ingredient mainly includes sugar, starch syrup, gelatin, salt, Umeboshi (pickled Ume plum) powder, red perilla (Shiso), Ume plum vinegar, and Ume plum flesh.
If you are interested in the Japanese candy with authentic Umeboshi flavor, I will highly recommend this product. With this Nobel Otoko Ume gummy candy, you will be able to enjoy a deep rich taste of Umeboshi that you have never experienced in the past.
