Sakuma drop candies - Kobe pudding & Okonomiyaki

Posted by Linda on 19. 2012 0 comments
I haven't reviewed about these wacky drop candies from Sakuma in a while so today I will be reviewing 2 flavors of these candies, the Okonomiyaki flavor from the city of Osaka, and the pudding flavor from the city of Kobe in Japan.
I ordered both of these with my last order with

Firstly the Pudding flavor from Kobe:

I was excited upon seeing this particular flavor in their catalogue as I love caramel pudding so I knew I just had to try this out, and I wasn't disappointed. Each piece of candy was bursting with sweet goodness with a hint of pudding flavor.
Kobe is famous for its beef dishes, but their pudding is also popular, Kobe pudding has a rather different taste to typical caramel pudding, it tends to be less sweet because a bit of liquor is often added to the caramel sauce, so it's sometimes not suitable for kids, but rather for adults. However, the taste of liquor was nonexistent in these candies or perhaps it was never added to begin with, probably because the makers at Sakuma want these candies to be kids-friendly.
Overall these Kobe pudding drop candies were packed with good sweetness, a little less accurate in the flavoring, but nonetheless, candies are suppose to be sweet and these were no doubt lovely & sweet.

My rating (overall):
secondly the Okonomiyaki flavor:

well, there's not much to comment on this one, the taste was really no different to the Takoyaki flavor that was rather inaccurate and odd and didn't really taste like Takoyaki at all. These Okonomiyaki candies were also rather inaccurate in the execution of the flavors, and left a somewhat peculiar aftertaste in my mouth which wasn't particularly pleasant.
Overall these okonomiyaki drop candies were disappointing in terms of execution and no where near as good as the Kobe pudding flavor.

My rating (overall):

I love food, especially desserts & sweets, junk food and Japanese cuisine! But I'm a foodie who loves all kinds of good food in general ^_^
I like to review & critique about various food, sweets, snacks & drinks I have tasted/tried based on my OWN personal opinion & preferences. So you may not agree with some of my opinions & ratings.

Please take note that I am not a serious food "critic", reviewing & critiquing foods is merely a hobby I like to do in my free time ^_^

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.
