Lotte’s Classic Ume & Blueberry Flavors Chewing Gum
Green Gum (released in 1957), Cool Mint Gum (1960), Black Black Gum (1983), and these Ume and Blueberry fruit flavors are chewing gum classics that the company Lotte boasts.
In addition to having many hit products in snacks and candies, Lotte is also a giant in Japan’s chewing gum market, occupying an overwhelming share of over 50 percent.
Lotte Ume Plum & Blueberry Chewing Gum
These Lotte’s Ume and Blueberry flavors are undoubtedly among Japan’s best-recognized and tastiest chewing gums, and thus, they are among the Japanese products you should remember.
Here with me, let’s take a close look at them, and if you get a chance someday, give them a try and indulge yourself!
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.

Lotte Blueberry Gum
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.
