Hello! I realised it had been a long time since I had reviewed some gummies so I thought I had better remedy that, pronto! Today’s post is about some rather unusual gummies; the Happy Nikukyu – Grape.
Happy Nikukyu – Grape
These paw-shaped gummies were a gift from Alanna in our parcel swap. I didn’t know this, but “Nikukyu” is the Japanese term for the padding on a kitten’s paws.
As per usual, the gummies come housed in a resealable foil packet. I received about 10 gummies in my pack, with two “big” gummies and the rest of them being a normal gummy size.
I didn’t realise these gummies would be grape flavoured until I opened them. The purple packaging with a small bunch of grapes on the front should have been an obvious clue *facepalm*. It is the typical grape taste I have come to expect with Japanese sweets. The grape taste isn’t overwhelming and doesn’t linger for too long thankfully.
The gummies themselves are soft and chewy. They are covered in a super fine dusting of sugar. Despite my initial reservations about the grape flavour, the gummies ended up being enjoyable and oddly moreish.
These gummies are so cute and I have grown rather fond of them, especially now I have eaten them all! I liked them more than I thought I would. I would be keen to try out the peach flavour – I bet that variety would be even more enjoyable – but I would also be open to repurchasing the grape flavour too.
The Happy Nikukyu gummies are out of stock on my usual websites of choice at the moment. I have managed to find them on JList if you were desperate to try them. I haven’t ordered anything from JList personally so I can’t vouch for its service, but I understand from others it is reliable. I can imagine these being a great gift for the cat lady in your life (I kid, I kid).
Would you try these gummies?
