Fro-yo girl here. I recently spotted a new yogurt flavored candy imported from Japan at Mitsuwa in Costa Mesa, CA. They only had one flavor, plain. The manufacturer is Morinaga, the makers of Hi-Chew (I love Hi-Chew). The candy comes in a small plastic pouch with the word Premium on the front.
One pouch is $1.99, 1.23 oz with 140 calories. It’s in the Hi-Chew product family but it looks different from the typical Hi-Chew. Each candy is a flattened oval shape, white in color. It is firm and chewy with a thin yogurt coating. The texture is similar to Hi-Chew, so it’s very chewy. The thin outer coating is sweet. The chewy interior has a creamy, Yakult like flavor. It’s good but I’m not a fan of Yakult flavor which is more sweet than tangy. It also tastes artificial. I really like the candy's texture though.
Ingredients: corn syrup, sugar, glucose, palm oil, concentrated yogurt, gelatin, cream, high fructose corn syrup, milk sauce, pectin, citric acid, artificial flavor.
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
