Dagashi: Awa Soda Fizzy Ramune Candy from Coris
Known for the whistle candy called Fue Ramume (フエラムネ), Coris (コリス) is a Japanese company that mainly produces Dagashi.
Dagashi (駄菓子) is one of the Japanese snack food categories consisting of cheap snacks/candies, equivalent to American penny candies.
Many of those Japanese kid treats have a long history and are generally unique, which also applies to this Awa Soda (あわソーダ) candy.
Coris Awa Soda Bubble Candy
These Coris Awa Soda & Awa Grape candies (which I bought in the Dagashi section of a supermarket for 28 yen each) have properties similar to Namaiki Beer, and they are confusing.
Specifically, the effervescent tablets of the latter Dagashi are for making a draft beef-like soft drink, whereas you can eat these candies as they are without preparation.
The word あわ/Awa means “bubble” in Japanese, and these products have another name in English, Soda Bubble Candy and Grape Bubble Candy, as seen on the packaging.
They are Ramune (ラムネ) sugar candies, and as their names suggest, they create a fizzy sensation and bubbles on your tongue.
Each package has three tablets, so you can experience the pleasant & fun sensation six times if you only spend 56 yen!
As with Fue Ramune, not only yummy, but these Dagashi treats are also so enjoyable that they will excite your children so much.
