Coris Fue Ramune: Classic Japanese Whistle Candy

Have you ever tried Japanese Ramune (ラムネ)? Further, do you know it comes in 2 types?

For the unfamiliar, one is the soda pop filled in a unique-shaped glass bottle sealed with a marble.

Meanwhile, the other type is the Dagashi sugar candy featuring a melty, chalky texture and a refreshing, sweet taste.

The Ramune candy is usually shaped like a tablet or pastille, as you can see from Japan’s most loved Morinaga Ramune (森永ラムネ).

The tablet candy has over 100 years of history and traditionally consists of sugar (dextrose), potato/corn starch, and acidifiers (citric acid).

But today, it is available in many flavors, including fruit ones, and some varieties boast one-of-a-kind characteristics not seen in others,

like this Fue Ramune (フエラムネ) whistle candy.

And this Ramune candy has a tiny hole at the center, making it possible to make a sound.

You can hear a high-pitched sound in the video, created with a blow of breath through the hole.
