Glico Pucchin Pudding: Best Japanese Puddings Vol.1
There are two pudding brands you should remember, in case you visit Japan, stop by a supermarket, and want some dessert.
They are what I bought several days ago, Glico Pucchin Pudding and Ohayo Jersey “Gyunyu (牛乳: meaning Milk)” Pudding.
Glico Pucchin Pudding and Ohayo Jersey Milk Pudding are Japan’s top-selling pudding products, widely enjoyed by children and adults alike.
Today, for those who are interested in Japanese puddings, I will give you an overview of the former, and tomorrow I will do the latter.
Glico Pucchin Pudding (プッチンプリン)
First, “Pucchin Pudding (プッチンプリン)” (Price: 140 yen or so/about 1.2 USD) is Japan’s most-loved pudding series from Glico, launched in 1972.
“Pucchin (プッチン)” in its name is derived from the sound emitted when you snap a little tab on the bottom of the cup to release its contents.
By doing so, the pudding is beautifully placed on the plate with its shape intact.
It is a chemical pudding hardened with gelling agents (agar, polysaccharide thickener), and thus, it takes on a firm jiggly texture.
This one is so fresh with just the right amount of sweetness, and the combo with the thick, rich caramel sauce on top makes it peerless.
Glico Pucchin Pudding is definitely a must-try dessert, and its availability is the best of all Japanese pudding products.
