Pureral Gummy: Popular Fruit Gummies from Kabaya

Gummy candy comes in various varieties in Japan, often found near the checkout counter of convenience stores.

Each Japanese gummy has distinctive features that set itself apart from its counterparts, and what I introduce here, Pureral Gummy (ピュアラルグミ), is also among them.

Introduced in 2004, Pureral Gummy is a signature fruit gummy candy of Kabaya Foods, an Okayama-based confectionery company known for Ju-C Ramune.

Not only can you see it sold at convenience stores in my country, but nowadays, the treat is also available on some online marketplaces outside Japan.

As of August 16, 2022, Kabaya Pureral Gummy comes in 3 flavors, apple, grape, and pineapple.

By the way, this time I got grape and apple.


In its name, Pureral is a compound word formed by combining pure and natural, and these gummies consist of 2 parts with different textures and tastes. 

Because of that, as you can see in the photo below, the cut surfaces are beautiful and look like gemstones.

According to the article ピュアラルグミ on Japanese Wikipedia, the opaque white part contains some air in it and is soft and fluffy.

Meanwhile, the transparent clear jelly-like part has a jiggly texture using real fruit juice.

Taste-wise, the outer white gummy is milky with a subtle fruit flavor and somewhat sugary.

Meanwhile, the embedded jelly-like candy is much more fruity, making a good pair with the exterior. Yes, the overall taste is pretty good!
