Kin no Milk: Kanro’s Best-Selling Milk Hard Candy

The milk flavor is arguably one of the most popular flavors for hard candy in many countries around the world.

For example, in Japan, Tokuno Milk 8.2 has long been loved by many people, and in fact, it’s been my favorite since I was a kid.

The milk candy from UHA Mikakuto, Tokuno Milk 8.2 is mild and packed with delicious flavor and will never let candy lovers down. 

Although its name includes the number 8.2, today the milk candy actually contains 10.2 percent milkfat per piece.

Nonetheless, in 2012, a milk candy with a higher milk fat percentage called “Kin no Milk (金のミルク)” was introduced by Kanro, which actually contains as much as 14.6 percent milkfat per piece.

On the package front, there is a text saying that this product is the No.1 best-selling milk candy in terms of the total sales amount during the period from October 2015 to September 2017.

According to another text on the package, these milk candies are made with premium fresh cream from Hokkaido that is favored and habitually used by professional pastry chefs.

Probably because of that, looking like butter candy, the Kanro Kin no Milk is full of the delicious flavor of milk. It is not overly sweet, but like UHA Tokuno Milk 8.2, will definitely make you satisfied.
