Gummy Mozza: Mozzarella Gummies from Bourbon
Bourbon is a Japanese confectionery maker that my prefecture Niigata can boast with many long-selling products, whose head office is in Kashiwazaki City.
In recent years, the company introduced a candy with a quirky texture called Gummy Mozza (グミモッツァ), and these days, I was curious about it, together with Morinaga’s Omochicchi.
Bourbon Gummy Mozza
Based on some online sources, Bourbon introduced Gummy Mozza in 2019, and its original flavor was grape.
But the grape candy was later discontinued, and instead, this yogurt flavor (Price: 120 yen) came into the market.
The main feature of these gummies is their mozzarella cheese-like texture. So with the white color of the yogurt, Gummy Mozza has become just like mozzarella cheese.
In fact, if these chunks came with fresh vegetables on a plate, people would think of them as real mozzarella cheese. But they have a delicious yogurt flavor!
As you can see in the video, Gummy Mozza is a soft, chewy, stretchy gummy candy.
While the Omochicchi Kinako flavor is just like Kinako Mochi, the Gummy Mozza yogurt candy perfectly captures the texture and appearance of mozzarella cheese!
Lastly, let’s see the ingredients and nutrition facts of the mozzarella gummy from Bourbon.
