Otoko Ume Candy: Nobel’s Popular Umeboshi Plum Candy
Ume plums are one of the essential ingredients for Japanese cuisine and candies. For example, the pickled Ume plum “Umeboshi (梅干し)” is a food that represents Japan.
Among them, “Otoko Ume (男梅)” is the brand name of a popular Umeboshi product series of “Nobel (ノーベル)” whose line-up includes Otoko Ume Gummy.
In addition to the gummi, there is actually one more popular Umeboshi candy in the series, which I bought today for this blog article.
Nobel Otoko Ume Candy
This “Otoko Ume Candy (男梅キャンディー)” from Nobel is one of the best-selling products in its Otoko Ume line and has been a long-time favorite in Japan.
These Umeboshi plum hard candies are individually packed and contain the same amount of Ume plum juice as a single piece of Ume plum.
Therefore, these are packed with the flavor and acidic umami taste of Umeboshi plums.
This Japanese treat has a delicious, authentic Umeboshi flavor. It isn’t sharp at all but rather mild and easy-to-eat.
Unless you dislike the salty-sour taste of Umeboshi plums, you will definitely like this Ume candy.
The Nobel Otoko Ume Candy isn’t sweet, but I think it has a delightful taste that almost everyone can like.
Lastly, according to the ingredient list on the back of the package, the main ingredients in this Nobel Otoko Ume Candy are sugar, starch syrup, concentrated Ume plum juice, salt, Ume plum flesh, dextrin, oligosaccharide, Ume vinegar, Shiso (perilla) powder, and Ume plum extract.
