Puccho - Cola

Posted by Linda on 30. 2011 0 comments 0 trackback
I've known about 'Puccho' for quite some time now, I've read reviews for these gum-like chewy candies from UHA on numerous other blogs over the years, and I just so happened to come across these Puccho candies being sold at one of the local Asian groceries around my neighbourhood last week, so I decided it's about time I give this brand a try myself.

this is the cola flavor:

each piece of the candy had a nice chewy texture like caramel candy without the stickiness, and the cola flavor was very rich and accurate. There were also some fizzy bits embedded in each piece to further compound the cola flavor and give it that 'fizziness', which I thought was a nice touch as the experience was almost like you're drinking fizzy cola.
However to be perfectly honest, even with its good points, for some reason there was nothing about these Puccho cola candies that truly "wowed" me. I can't really pinpoint the problem...I liked the rich cola flavor and the addition of the fizzy bits was a neat enhancement. I guess I simply don't find anything particularly special about it.

My rating (overall):

Kit Kat - Petit Cheese

Having came across quite an amount of unusual and wacky flavors of confectionery and sweets from Japan, I guess I shouldn't be all that surprised when I saw this box of CHEESE flavored Kit Kats at NapaJapan, and yes, these are from Japan also!

these petit cheese flavored KKs are available in 2 size party boxes; a pack of 6, and pack of 10, I bought the pack that contained 10 petit bars:

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
