I have been introducing you sweet, typical snack but today, I will tell you about a something out of the ordinary. The name is “Otoko Ume Gummy Candy”. Literally, it means “Man Plum” The name itself is overly catchy. If you have ever eaten Japanese plum, the taste will be very interesting.
The package is like this. What written at the center is Otoko Ume. Being colored in red, black and white and is masculine.
Of course, it also has character as usual. On usual dried plum there is face and arms.
Their official homepage has series of TV commercial. They are worth one look for its silliness.
When you bite, it’s too soft to be defined as candy but, too soft to be a gummy candy. The taste is decently salty and really like dried plum.
