Tokuno Milk 8.2 : UHA Mikakuto’s Long-Selling Milk Hard Candy
Milk candy is a sweet treat that is popular with all generations in many countries. Of course, in Japan too, there are a wide variety of milk candies and some of them have been loved for decades.
If I give representative examples of such long-selling Japanese milk candies, what come to mind right away are Fujiya Milky and UHA Mikakuto Tokuno Milk 8.2.
Since I introduced the former milk candy Fujiya Milky before, this time I will talk about the latter UHA Mikakuto Tokuno Milk 8.2.
UHA Mikakuto Tokuno Milk 8.2 Hard Candy
Actually, today I bought the milk hard candy from UHA Mikakuto “Tokuno Milk 8.2 (特濃ミルク8.2)” (Amazon.com) for this blog article. As you can see in the photo, this year marked the 30th anniversary of the candy.
The package contains 20 pieces of milk hard candies, which are kindly individually packed.
Although the number 8.2 is included in the product name, now a piece of the milk candy contains 10.2 percent milk fat.
The milk hard candy looks like a pat of butter. This is probably because the candy is actually made with fresh cream and butter. All the milk raw materials used in this candy are procured from within the country.
The Tokuno Milk 8.2 hard candy has a rich sweetness and creaminess that makes the most of the original taste of milk, and besides the aftertaste is also good. So I think you will never get tired of eating it.
According to the ingredient list on the back of the package, the UHA Mikakuto Tokuno Milk 8.2 hard candy is made with sugar, starch syrup, fresh cream, sweetened condensed milk, butter, salt, flavoring, emulsifiers, and acidifiers.
The Tokuno Milk 8.2 hard candy has about 19 kcal per piece. The product has 379 kcal, 2.3 g proteins, 9.3 g fat, 73.4 g carbohydrates, and 0.4 g sodium chloride equivalents in total.
