Kasugai Tsubu Gummy: 5 Flavors of Colorful Fruit Candies
Fruit gummy candies are one of my favorite treat genres. Among those, especially I love UHA Mikakuto Kororo Gummy with a texture like real fruit. Nonetheless, I’m fond of trying various kinds of gummies, so if I find what attracts my interest, I will grab it.
In fact, the other day, I came across a fruit gummy candy that caught my eye in a convenience store. One primary reason why I got curious about the product is that the package contained beautiful colorful gummies with bright colors, which stood out on the shelf among others. And I picked it up after all.
Kasugai Seika Tsubu Gummy
What I bought this time is this “Tsubu Gummy (つぶグミ: literally meaning Grain Gummy)” from Kasugai Seika. The manufacturer, Kasugai Seika Confectionery is actually well-known for its classic Ame hard candies in Japan, such as “Shio Ame (塩あめ)” and “Kuro Ame (黒飴)“.
The bag contains 5 flavors of colorful, crumbly sugar-coated gummy candies. As you can see in the photo above, they feature eye-catching, beautiful, bright colors (pink: peach flavor, green: muscat flavor, purple: grape flavor, red: apple flavor, orange: grapefruit flavor) with a somewhat hard, chewy texture.
Since these gummy candies are made using plenty of fruit juice, each of the 5 flavors has a satisfying fruitiness and isn’t sour at all. Besides, the sugar coating adds a gentle sweetness to the gummy candy itself, so they totally satisfied me. Kasugai Tsubu Gummy isn’t just beautiful but indeed yummy, so the Japanese gummy candy will be able to make kids feel excited and happy.
