Fujiya Milky Box

Posted in Lifestyle

Hello!  I seem to be turning into a Japanese candy hoarder – oops!  As I received my shipping confirmation for my next OyatsuBox (crikey, that came around fast), I thought I had better start munching away and making some room!  Today’s post is about a Japanese candy legend; the Fujiya Milky Box.

$1.99 – OyatsuCafe

They say: A very Japanese candy, these sweets are deliciously milky. This brand started production in 1951 and is made from high quality milk from Hokkaido. Featuring the well known Peko-Chan on the box.  Each box contains around 7 individually wrapped candies.

I say: I feel a bit embarrassed I haven’t tried this sweet sooner – oops!  I hope you can all forgive me?  There are so many choices of weird and wonderful Japanese sweets available, it was nice to “step back” and enjoy something traditional.

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with these; milk flavoured sweets?! Like I said in my original unboxing, they can either be nice or not so nice, and… they are nice.   Actually, they’re more than nice;  a subtle, sweet milk tasting soft chew with a just right amount of chew required.  There’s nothing worse than a chewy sweet that rips out your molars for the banter.  I only had a few in the box but I can imagine they can get sickly if eaten in droves.  My mum describes them as tasting like “the cream on the top of milk, the milk you used to get at school” – I think she’s a fan of these too!  I can now understand why this product is so iconic and how it’s managed to keep going even after 50 years.  Here’s to the next 50, Fujiya!

If I were to buy these again, I’d definitely order a bag or two (in the large bags, you get 15 candies for about $2 more!).  I’d just have to try and not eat them all in one go…

Have you ever tried the Fujiya Milky Box? If not, would you try them?

    I imagine this to taste like those milk ice lollies you can get.

    Bottled milk at school! I wonder if they still do that?
