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 that is widely enjoyed in Japan

Traditionally, Umeboshi features its awful sourness and saltiness, but nowadays there are various types of Umeboshi products that are mild and easy to eat available at supermarkets in Japan.

Accordingly, various unique 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 that is unique and popular.

If I give another example of such relatively new Japanese Umeboshi candies, iFactory Umeboshi Sheet is the item that shouldn’t be forgotten.

iFactory Umeboshi Sheet – A new type of Japanese soft candy paste with Umeboshi flavor 

iFactory Umeboshi Sheet ( is also a relatively new item as it was released by iFactory about 10 years ago.It is a new type of Umeboshi candy that hadn’t been around until it went on the market, because the candy is a sheet-type soft candy paste.

These Umeboshi candies are quite unique in texture.They are somewhat hard and chewy like sheet-type chewing gum.Regarding my review, since this bite-sized candy has moderate sweetness and refreshing sourness, I think it has an addicting taste and is easy to eat.

The ingredients and bag of the iFactory Umeboshi Sheet candy 

Speaking of the ingredient of this Umeboshi candy, the main ingredients are Ume plum flesh, starch, sugar and salt.Hence, the sheet-type paste consists mainly of Ume plum paste and starch.

The bag of this item is pocketable with a zipper so that it is convenient to carry around.


As I wrote above, this sheet-type candy is like chewing gum rather than a gummy candy, so it is quite unique in texture.Since the candy itself is yummy and addictive and the balance between sourness and sweetness is good, if the sourness suits your taste, you will like it.This iFactory Umeboshi Sheet candy is a recommended item especially for those who are fond of new things.



I'm Japanese living in Niigata Prefecture,Japan.I want to introduce things about Japan,especially unique Japanese products,sightseeing places,my daily life and Japanese culture.
