Lotte’s New Type of Fusen no Mi Gum for Adults
Lotte Otona no Fusen no Mi Gum, a new Japanese treat where chewing bubble gum and gummy candy comes together, is now in my hands.
This time, I bought the grape flavor at a convenience store.
Otona no Fusen no Mi Gum from Lotte
Introduced by Lotte in March of last year (2020), Otona no Fusen no Mi Gum is the Fusen no Mi Gum for adults, as Otona (大人) means “adult” in Japanese.
But, of course, children can enjoy this chewing gum as well.
I guess one primary reason why the name of this product includes the word Otona is simply that the original Fusen no Mi Gum is mainly marketed toward kids.
By the way, the literal meaning of Fusen (ふーせん/風船) is a balloon. But here, it stands for Fusen Gum or bubble gum, while Mi (実) is the word for fruit or seed.
While the regular Fusen no Mi Gum for children comes in blueberry flavor, the Otona no Fusen no Mi Gum for adults has a mellow grape flavor.
This chewing gum is very juicy compared to others, as it fills the center with a jelly-like gummy candy.
After enjoying the gum, you can remove it from the mouth using the enclosed sticky notes without getting your hands dirty.
I tried this fusen gum for the first time, but it was so good and satisfying!
