Orange and Pear Gummi

Along with the Chelsea Praline Scotch from last week, these two Kajuy Gummies were bought at that Asian Market in New York City. I am a sucker for Japanese gummies, as I’ve never tasted more flavorful and wonderfully chewy gummies in all my life. I saw these and decided to try the new flavors. The decisions to buy them was an easy one!

Gummies in Japan in the past few years have sort of experienced a popularity explosion. Collagen, that grouping of proteins, has been touted as a “health item” that gives you better skin. And candy companies have been putting this stuff in gummies which has led to better sales (which is just my guess as I’m seeing more and more gummies all the time, so I figure they’re trying to keep up with the demand). These gummies here boast a whole 2700mg of collagen in each package. Impressive!

Pear: The pieces are pear shaped and have a nice golden yellow color to them. they smell strongly of apples and that floral note of pear. the flavor strongly mimics the aroma, and tastes beautifully of a juicy pear, with flavors of apples, grapes and that nice floral taste. It’s lovely and very authentic.

Orange: Has a nice rich color and a shape like little orange segments, and they even have some texture to show the pulp ripples. The flavor is extremely juicy, with nice sweet/sour notes of the orange. It’s extremely delicious. Yum.

Once again I am pleased with how extremely tasty Japanese gummies are. These were wonderful and authentic, and it makes me wish I had these as a child instead of gummi bears. I probably would have liked gummies if that was the case, but, better late than never, right?
