Hokkaido Corn caramels

here's a lovely goodie I got from NapaJapan, it was part of an order I made with them some months ago.

Anyway, this is a box of corn caramels made in the northern Japanese island Hokkaido using 100% best quality corn grown on the island:

each piece of these Hokkaido corn caramel had a very soft and chewy texture and consistency but were not sticky, unlike typical caramels which are hard and tends to stick to your teeth. I think I have stressed numerous times in the past why I dislike caramel and that I tend to avoid it, the main problem I have with typical caramels is that they stick to your teeth and I hate that. There has only been a few exceptions over the years of caramels I've let slide from this common hatred I have of caramels, mainly because they did not have that irritating sticky texture. And these Hokkaido corn caramels share that same quality with those few exceptions, these caramels were just lovely, really, beautiful soft chewy non-sticky texture and they had a lovely amount of sweet corn flavor, the corn flavor wasn't too strong, but certainly not mild either, just the right amount to please my sensesI was even able to smell the sweet aroma of corn when I first opened the package, before I was even able to savor a piece of this sweet corn goodness
I expected nothing less of the manufacturers in Hokkaido, Hokkaido produce are really some of the best quality foods & sweets you can find in Japan, with that said, they're some of the best in the world too!

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.
