Calpis Marshmallows

Posted in Lifestyle

Hello!   After I finished the last of my Japanese Kit Kats, I delved back into my OyatsuBox for another item I had been longing to try – the Calpis Marshmallows.

Calpis Marshmallows - Famous in Japan

Calpis Marshmallows

$1.32 – Candysan

When I opened the packet for the first time, I was greeted with the lovely scent of sweet marshmallows.  It wasn’t overwhelming in the slightest; it was subtle and made me very excited to dig in.

The marshmallows are so soft and light; not at all like the heavy, stodgy versions we have here in England.   In terms of the taste, they taste just like a regular marshmallow.  However, what really sets these particular marshmallows apart from the others is the filling inside.  The filling is meant to be the flavour of the Calpis soda drink.  I haven’t tried the drink myself but hopefully regular readers will remember that I tried the gummy version of the drink.  After eating a few marshmallows to test this claim, I could taste the similarity between these and the Calpis Soda Gummies.  Unlike those gummies, this filling has an added sweet zing that is more enjoyable to eat.  The flavour of the Soda Gummies was more of a milky-sweet taste that got sickly – fast!

I think these have to be the best marshmallows I’ve ever tried.  These marshmallows are so addictive that I ate the entire packet in a day without even noticing.  I just couldn’t keep my mitts out of the packet!  I need to get those greedy mitts on some more.   I can see the Calpis Marshmallows haunting my dreams the same way Meiji Meltykiss chocolate does.  *sighs*

I received the Calpis Marshmallows in an OyatsuBox but sadly I cannot find them for sale on OyatsuCafe.  I am hopeful that they will be sold on there in the near future but for the time being I have included the link to the Candysan website.  I personally haven’t ordered from this website before but I think others have without complaint.

    I think I’ll have to pick a packet up at some point – you’re going to cost me, Daniella! haha :)

    If you said they taste like Marshmallows back in the UK, I’d have said no automatically but now I’m curious x

    I;m glad to hear that these are nice!
    Have you tried the Calpis drink before? The Asian Supermarket in Leeds sometimes stocks it
    I’ve only tried it once and I hated it but I’ve tried some nice Calpis candies now so I might try it again
    (I forgot to get some in Japan, derp!)

      I forgot about that supermarket!
      I’m not sure if I would try it, I thought the sweets were really sickly.
      I miss these marshmallows so much :((((
