Ramune Mochi: Seika Foods’ Soft Chewy Mochi Candy

Recently, an unfamiliar candy that I had never tried named Ramune Mochi (ラムネもち) caught my eye at my go-to 7-Eleven.

After checking the package, I found it from Seika Foods, a food maker based in Kagoshima Prefecture on Kyushu Island, known for Bontan Ame, and grabbed one for its novelty factor.

The Ramune Mochi candy seems like a variant of Bontan Ame because they have similarities.

First, as you can see in the photo, the maker wraps the Ramune (ラムネ) flavor candy in a wafer sheet, as in Bontan Ame.

Second, these Mochi-like Mochigashi (餅菓子) treats are almost as soft & chewy as Bontan Ame and even contain Bontan/pomelo juice.

The emerald green candy is also as yummy as Bontan Ame, but I like this one more because of the Ramune flavor.

The combination of Ramune and Mochigashi is unique and very Japanese, plus the fusion is so good that I can recommend this to every Japanese snack lover.
