Meiji Petit Gum: Enjoyable Chewing Bubble Gum Pellets

When I think of Meiji Choco Baby, the product about which I posted an article yesterday, there is another item that comes to my mind, for the thing also from Meiji has a shape similar to the chocolate Choco Baby and was one of my favorite sweet treats as a kid.

What brings back memories of my childhood, together with Choco Baby, is this “Petit Gum (プチガム)” from Meiji. As you can see in the photo, Meiji Petit Gum are chewing bubble gum pellets, which come in 2 flavors, Grape, and Soda. Similar to Choco Baby’s plastic container, this paper box is also very handy with a re-closable lid.

The box contains lots of chewing gum pellets, most of which, the eye-catching bright purple-colored pieces, have a grape flavor. The product also contains a few yellowish-green chewing gum pellets which have a muscat flavor and delight kids.

The chewing bubble gum Petit Gum actually has a two-layer structure and is coated with a thin layer of flavored sugar, but its inner part is plain white gum. The overall gum is fruity and very satisfying, but not only that, the product has one more element that makes children excited; using the box and the chewing gum pellets, you can even play a ball game!
