They are what I bought several days ago, Glico Pucchin Pudding and Ohayo Jersey “Gyunyu (牛乳: meaning Milk)” Pudding.

Glico Pucchin Pudding (プッチンプリン)

Glico Pucchin Pudding

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.

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.
