International Candy Spotlight: Favorites from Japan

Hey candy lovers, are you ready to embark on yet another adventure to check up on some different treats from around the world? We are! So today we’re going to take a trip to a country that brings us fun, unique, and downright tasty sweets – Japan.

It’s no secret that Japan is known for its creative spin on food and candy is no exception. Unique combinations, bright colors, and strong flavors are hallmarks of Japanese candy and many brands have a cult following here in the United States. Here are a few favorites that we stock in our candy warehouse:

Puchao Gummy Soft Candy
If you’re looking for one of the more unique Japanese candies, look no further than Puchao. Known as Japan’s favorite gummy candy, one bite and you’ll know why! Each one of these gummy candies hides a burst of fizz of flavor inside that create a taste explosion. For example, the Cola flavored Puchao features cola gummies inside the center of the gummy along with “fizzy tablets” that when combined make this candy taste just like you opened up a bottle of pop.

Kasugai Gummy Candy
Once you try these Japanese gummy candies you may not snack on any other. Yes, they are that good! Available in several flavors including mango, grape, apple, and more. Plus, they are all gluten-free and some contain real fruit juice. What makes them unique is that each one is individually wrapped and slightly larger than gummy candy we’re familiar with here in the United States.

From gummy, we move to chewy and there’s no chewier candy than a Hi-Chew. In fact, this Japanese candy bills itself as being “intensely chewy” and it sure is, but along with being chewy these have an incredible amount of flavor which makes them one of our favorites. Available in multiple flavors such as grape, apple, mango, and more.


Shrimp Chips
Let’s end our trip by having a snack and we have a truly unique one for you – Shrimp Chips! Yes, you heard that right. These imported Japanese snacks are puffed wheat which is baked then garlic shrimp flavored. These chips have been around for more than 50 years and are one of the most popular snacks in Japan. In addition to shrimp and garlic flavored chips we also shrimp and wasabi if you want to kick it up a little bit!

We hope you enjoyed taking a virtual trip with us to check out some of our favorite imported snacks from Japan. If you missed our favorites from the UK, be sure to check them out as well. Remember, if you’re looking for imported candy, we have a great selection from around the world that we stock in our warehouse and are in stock and ready to ship without delay!
