Tastes like real sour fruit?
We are still trying the many Japanese gummies we ordered. This time, we tried the Puré gummy from Kanro, our choice was Muscat flavour.
On the package, we can find the motto “Tastes just like a real fruit, with a sweet and sour taste”.
A chewy consistency while also feeling the individual grains of sugar?
The Pure gummies are shaped like little hearts. According to the package, the texture of this gummy in Japanese is “shari” and “mochi” ..
“Mochi” is easy to understand, which means chewy like mochi, but what does “shari” mean?
We don’t exactly know what “shari” is supposed to mean, but we think that it means to feel the individual grains of sugar between your teeth.
For us, they don’t really taste like the food they are trying to replicate, but they were yummy enough. We wonder why so many Japanese gummies aim to taste like real fruit. Do Japanese people maybe eat gummies as alternatives to fruits?
