UHA Kagekix: The Sourest Ramune Candy in Japan
When it comes to sour gummy candy, I love UHA Mikakuto’s Shigekix gummies that come in several different sour levels and flavors. In the name, as the word “Shigeki (シゲキ)” means stimulation in Japanese, the Mikakuto’s gummy candy features its stimulating sour flavor.

Actually, the Japanese confectionery company UHA Mikakuto introduced a new product relating to the Shigekix gummy candy in recent years, which I purchased this time at a 7 Eleven convenience store for this blog article.
The name of the product I picked up is UHA Mikakuto “Kagekix (カゲキックス)”. In the name, as “Kageki (カゲキ)” means extremeness and the text “スッパレベル Max” means the sourness of this candy is the maximum level, this Kagekix candy is characterized by its extremely stimulating sourness and acidity.
The bag only contains 5 small pieces of Ramune soda candies. “Ramune (ラムネ)” is a classic Japanese sugar candy with a chalky texture and a refreshing taste that comes from citric acid.
Although traditional Ramune candies basically consist of “Katakuriko (片栗粉)” potato starch, dextrose, and citric acid, modern ones come in many varieties and are produced using a variety of ingredients.
As for this Kagekix, unlike traditional Ramune candies, it is a Ramune candy with hard candy bits embedded throughout that make your tongue tingle.
In addition to that, as I mentioned above, these Ramune soda candies are extremely super sour. So after finishing the bag, I noticed beads of sweat stood on my forehead. This is the sourest Ramune candy I have ever eaten in my life!
Last, for those who want to know the ingredients of this Japanese candy, here it is. According to the list on the back of the bag, the Kagekix Ramune soda candy mainly consists of erythritol, sugar, starch, milk sugar, starch syrup, acidifiers, cellulose, Acesulfame K, aspartame, L-Phenylalanine, and carbon dioxide.
