Pure Gummy: Fruit Flesh-Like Candy from Kanro
When I think of sweet treats from the Japanese confectionery maker “Kanro (カンロ)”, the first thing that comes to my mind is the Kanro Ame hard candy with the umami of soy sauce.
Additionally, in recent years, the company had a big success with the product Kin no Milk.
As these indicate, Kanro is especially well-known for hard candies in Japan, but I’m fond of their gummies too.
In fact, yesterday at a supermarket, I picked up my favorite gummy candy from the company named “Pure Gummy (ピュレグミ)”.
Kanro Pure Gummy
Kanro Pure Gummy (Price: 130 yen/ about 1.1 USD) was introduced into the market in 2002, and now it has become a standard fruit gummy candy in Japan.
According to the official website of Kanro, as of January 4th, 2022, Kanro Pure Gummy (56 grams) comes in 4 regular flavors; Lemon, Grape, Muscat, and Ume (plum).
Kanro Pure Gummy is like fruit flesh. It is as soft as earlobes, and the more it is chewed, the fruitier it becomes.
The candy is coated with a tart powder which adds a pleasant kick. It not only contains vitamin C but even offers collagen.
Specifically, based on the information on the official site, the Kanro Pure Gummy Grape candy consists of sugar, starch syrup, gelatin, concentrated grape juice, grape paste, acidifier, pectin, calcium carbonate, grape pigment, flavoring, and vitamin C.
