Meiji Gummy Choco - Asian Food Market : Cherry Hill, NJ

Meiji Gummy Choco - Asian Food Market : Cherry Hill, NJ
Gummy candy and chocolate? A lot of people I know dislike the combination, but I actually enjoy it. My favorite example of this combination is milk chocolate covered gummy bears. (I buy them in a little tub at Wegman’s.) This is a product with a similar idea.

These are little gummy centers that are coated in a very thin layer of milk chocolate, and then coated in a white chocolate coating flavored to match the gummy center. In this mix the flavors are strawberry, muscat, and orange.

I love this tubular packaging. It is very easy to store, easy to share, and it doesn’t take up much space at all in a bag or drawer. Meiji offers a lot of their candies in these tube-type packages as well as the traditional boxes, which is nice, but I prefer the unique look of these tubes.

The candies are small and smooth, the overall smell is chocolate mixed with grape gummies, my tube was almost all muscat so I guess that smell overpowered the other flavors.
  • Strawberry : Pinkish (Mauve) - It didn’t smell like much on it’s own, and the coating tasted more like a generic white and milk chocolate than anything strawberry. Inside, the gummy was much more fruity and powerful. It tasted a lot like a real strawberry! Sweet, tangy and juicy. I really liked the center, but the outside was very boring.
  • Muscat : Green - It smelled faintly like white grape juice, and again the coatings didn’t really taste like much at all. The gummy inside was really bright and delicious. It was a lot like the Muscat gummies I had before. Like the strawberry, I liked the middle more than anything else.
  • Orange : Red-Orange - Like the others, this one didn’t smell like much, outside didn’t taste like much, and the center was amazingly fruity!

Overall I liked the gummy centers more than the rest of the candy. When combined, the combination didn’t compliment each other. I found that the coatings actually hid most of the fruity gummy flavors and that I started eating the coatings off just to enjoy the gummy on it’s own.
