Lotte Ume Gum

The Lotte Ume Gum (Price: 110 yen) has been around since 1976, and this is the No.1 Japanese fruit-flavored chewing gum I want you to sample.

Preceding Sakura in the spring, Ume (梅) is a plum that colors the winter of Japan, representing one of the Japanese tastes. And this chewing gum has a delightful chew (hard to stick to teeth) and is super flavorful.

The Lotte Blue Berry Gum (Price: 110 yen) hit the shelves in 1982, but many people will probably see it as a pair with the Ume Plum Gum above.

Once chewing, the sweet scent of blueberry wafts out and attracts people. Not only the smell but the texture is also addicting, and the taste is (to say the least) scrumptious.
