UHA Mikakuto Kagekix : I Tried the Extreme Sour Ramune Soda Candy

When it comes to sour gummy candy, I love UHA Mikakuto’s Shigekix gummies.

The “Shigekix (シゲキックス)” series is famous as a long-seller in Japan, and the gummy candy comes in several different levels of sourness and flavors.

As the Japanese word, “Shigeki (シゲキ)” means stimulation, the Mikakuto’s gummy candy is characterized by its stimulating sour flavor.

Actually, UHA Mikakuto introduced a new product relating to the Shigekix gummy candy into Japan’s market in recent years, which I purchased this time in a 7 Eleven convenience store for this blog article.

Its product name is UHA Mikakuto “Kagekix (カゲキックス)”. At this point, you may wonder, “What does “Kageki (カゲキ)” mean?”

Actually, the Japanese word, Kageki means extremeness, so this candy is characterized by its extremely stimulating flavor.

Since the label “スッパレベル Max” means the sourness of the candy is the maximum level, this Kagekix candy has an extreme sour flavor.

The product only contains 5 small pieces of Ramune soda candies. “Ramune (ラムネ)” is the Japanese sugar candy characterized by its chalky texture and the refreshing flavor 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.

In fact, unlike traditional Ramune candies, the Kagekix candy has tiny hard candy bits mixed in with the Ramune candy, which make the tongue tingle.

In addition to that, of course, the Ramune soda candy itself is extremely super sour. So after eating it, beads of sweat stood on my forehead.
