Recently we added a large selection of Kasugai Gummies to our international snack store. All the flavors have been extremely popular, but the Ramune flavor has been our best-seller. Being that we are fans of Ramune soda, we knew we had to sample this Japanese Snack for ourselves.
Wait, what is Ramune Soda?
Before we rip this bag open we wanted to take a moment to talk a little more about Ramune Soda, as it's the inspiration of this snack under review. Here's what it looks like:
Look familiar? Probably not as it's primarily available in Japan. It comes in a very distinct bottle. When you open the soda you compress a marble into the top of the bottle. As you drink the beverage the marble rolls around. It's unusual, but fun. As you can see from above, it comes in a variety of flavors, just like Kasugai Gummy Candy. The snack we are tasting is based off the original flavor, which is a lemon soda. We may visit this unique soda on our snack blog again in the future, but until then let's get on with our review!
The Kasugai Ramune Gummy Candy comes individually wrapped. This makes it easier to share. Don't worry, sharing is not required. The packaging is pleasant and the light blue color is pleasing. So it looks nice, but how does it taste?
No my hand is not dirty, the gummy gives off a little shimmer. As it's a soda based candy, it made me think of carbonation. At first the flavor is bubble gummy. Shortly after the lemon soda kicks in. It's like a slightly sweeter Sprite or 7UP flavor that lingers for a long time. The texture is not chewy like many Haribo Gummy snacks. Instead it's firm at first with the ideal amount of bounciness. You can enjoy the snack in two chews. It's highly addicting and being individually wrapped is nice. It makes sure you don't eat the whole bag in one sitting!
For those who have followed our snack blog over the years you know we generally close with a decision if we will stock the snack under review or not. However, this one is already for sale online here in our snack store. What are you waiting for? Go buy a bag right now!
