Umeboshi Sheet – A new type of Japanese soft candy paste
When it comes to the Japanese food that goes well with steamed plain rice, many of us Japanese like eating Umeboshi plums along with the rice.
As a matter of fact, the pickled Ume plum is a traditional Japanese food with more than a thousand years of history.
Traditionally, the food features its awful sourness and saltiness, though recently there are various types of Umeboshi products, many of which are mild and easy to eat, available at supermarkets in Japan.
Accordingly, a variety of Umeboshi candies, from gummies to hard candies, have come out one after another.For example, Nobel Otoko Ume Gummy, about which I wrote the other day, is a relatively new Japanese gummy candy with Umeboshi flavor.
If I give another example of relatively new Japanese Umeboshi candies, iFactory Umeboshi Sheet is an item that shouldn’t be forgotten.
