Pokemon Candies (Possibly Gum) -??? : Chinatown, Philadelphia, PA

Pokemon Candies (Possibly Gum) -??? : Chinatown, Philadelphia, PA  
Check out more Pokemon photos in yesterday’s post!
Time to discuss some packaging, and (prepare to be shocked) this is another item where I have absolutely no complaints or suggestions for the design! This is aimed at kids, so it’s bright and colorful, and I feel like this packaging was very well thought out. The stickers are a nice touch, which can make this a collectable item (much like the entire Pokemon franchise) or you can just enjoy the candy. There were different character strips and stickers available in the store, personally I chose this one because of Pikachu and Pidove.
This is adorable, fun to photograph, and functional. I wouldn’t change a thing about it.

Okay so the packaging is functional, and adorable, but what is it? There was no English text to let me know what was inside each little packet.

I grabbed a random Pokemon packet and carefully tore it open, and inside was a soft white square. It’s very light weight and it feels similar to a stick of gum.

It smells sweet and citrusy, like GOOD ramune (not the evil bubblegum-y kind), so I think this is supposed to be ramune flavored gum… and it is!

I took a bite and the gum started forming right away. This has a nice citrus soda taste and a really soft chew. One square isn’t enough to form bubbles, but I could make decently sized ones after I chewed two squares together.

The gum loses flavor pretty quickly, but I enjoyed the flavor while it lasted. Overall I am really happy with my purchase and I would definitely buy this again.
