UHA Kagekix: The Sourest Japanese Ramune Candy
When it comes to sour gummy candy, I love UHA Mikakuto’s Shigekix gummies that come in several different sourness levels and flavors.
As the word “Shigeki (シゲキ)” means “stimulation” in Japanese, the Shigeki-X gummy features a stimulating sour, acidic taste.

In recent years, UHA Mikakuto introduced a new product relating to the Shigekix gummy candy called “Kagekix (カゲキックス)”, which I picked up this time at a 7 Eleven convenience store for this blog article.
In its name, “Kageki (カゲキ)” is the word for “extreme”, while “スッパレベル Max” on the packaging means the sourness of this candy is the maximum level.
And for that, this Kagekix candy features an extremely stimulating sourness and acidity.
This product only contains 5 small pieces of Ramune soda candy.
For the unfamiliar, “Ramune (ラムネ)” is a classic Japanese sugar candy with a chalky texture featuring a refreshing taste from citric acid.
While traditional Ramune consists of Katakuriko potato starch, dextrose, and citric acid, modern varieties use various ingredients.
As for this Kagekix, it’s a unique Ramune with hard candy bits embedded throughout that make your tongue tingle.
Plus, these treats are super sour. So after finishing the bag, beads of sweat stood on my forehead.
This is definitely the sourest Ramune candy I have ever eaten!
Lastly, for those who are curious about the ingredients in this treat, here is the label.
According to that, the Kagekix Ramune soda candy mainly consists of erythritol, sugar, starch, milk sugar, starch syrup, acidifier, cellulose, acesulfame K, aspartame, L-phenylalanine, and carbon dioxide.
