Fruiche: House’s Long-Selling Yogurt-Like Fruit Jelly Dessert

Today, when I went shopping at a supermarket, I was in the mood for some fruit yogurt, but wanted to eat something more gelatinous, so I grabbed a bag of the yogurt like jelly dessert called “Fruiche (フルーチェ)” that I used to eat as a kid.

House Fruiche

Correctly, “Fruiche (フルーチェ)” is an instant food product containing the base sauce of a yogurt like gelatinous fruit jelly. It was introduced in 1976 by House Foods and now has been a favorite of many Japanese people, especially favored by children.

So in the package, there is only one pouch which contains the dessert base like a fruit sauce. The making of the jelly dessert is quite easy. In addition to the base sauce, all you need to prepare is only (100%) milk.

How to Make

As shown above, the making of the Japanese jelly dessert is first pour 150ml of chilled milk into a bowl of the base sauce and stir well evenly with a spoon until the liquid mixture becomes firm and gelatinous. That’s it. 

Flavors and Taste

The popular jelly dessert in Japan, House Fruiche comes in several fruit flavors and this time I chose this Rich Strawberry & Cherry Mix.

As you can see in the video, the Fruiche jelly is like a fruit yogurt and in fact tastes kind of like it, so good, but is more firm and gelatinous in consistency.

I think the distinctive fresh consistency that is somewhat different from that of usual yogurts is the secret behind the popularity of House Fruiche.
