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.
