Tokuno Milk 8.2: UHA Mikakuto’s Popular Milk 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 long been loved for decades.
If I give representative examples of such long-time favorite milk candies in Japan, what comes to my mind right away is 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, which I actually bought today for this blog article.
UHA Mikakuto Tokuno Milk 8.2 Hard Candy
And this is the hard milk candy from UHA Mikakuto “Tokuno Milk 8.2 (特濃ミルク8.2)”. As you can see in the photo above, this year marked the 30th anniversary of the product, and the packaging contains 20 pieces of individually packed milk candies.
Although the number 8.2 is included in the product name, now a single piece of the hard milk candy contains 10.2 percent milk fat. Made with plenty of fresh cream and butter, it looks like a pat of butter, and all the milk-related raw materials used in this treat are procured from within the country.
These hard milk candies, Tokuno Milk 8.2 is not overly sweet with a rich creaminess that makes the most of the original taste of milk and leaves a good aftertaste, so I always can’t get enough of eating this milk candy!
According to the ingredient list on the back of the package, the Japanese milk candy UHA Mikakuto Tokuno Milk 8.2 consists of sugar, starch syrup, milk powder, fresh cream, sweetened condensed milk, butter, salt, flavoring, emulsifier, and acidifier.
