Omochicchi: Morinaga’s Mochi-Like Soft, Chewy Candy

The fruit chew from Morinaga Seika (森永製菓), Hi-Chew, is one of the Japanese treats widely enjoyed in many countries.

Last year (2020), the leading Japanese confectionery maker, Morinaga, introduced a new soft, chewy candy called Omochicchi (おもちっち), similar to Hi-Chew in Japan.

With Bourbon’s Gummy Mozza, I was curious about the texture and finally got the product at a 7-Eleven convenience store today!

From the name Omochicchi, people familiar with Japanese food can probably imagine how the texture is. Yes, it is like mochi, as the video below shows.

The Omochicchi candy has a pleasant chew and is very stretchy! But unlike actual mochi, it is not that sticky.

This treat currently comes in 3 flavors, Kuromitsu Kinako, Milk, and Matcha, and these Kuromitsu Kinako cubes capture the taste and texture of Kinako Mochi very well!

It was my first try at Morinaga Omochicchi, but the candy was quite good!
