Omochicchi: Morinaga’s Mochi-Like Soft Chewy Candy

The fruit chew from Morinaga Seika, Hi-Chew is one of the most popular Japanese candies widely enjoyed in the world.

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

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

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

Morinaga Omochicchi currently comes in 3 flavors, Kuromitsu Kinako, Milk, and Matcha, and these Kuromitsu Kinako Omochicchi well capture the taste and texture of Kinako Mochi

This was the first time I tried Morinaga Omochicchi, but it was quite good!
