Kabaya Juu-C Cola

Posted in Lifestyle

Hello! I have another Japanese confectionery post coming at you today, and I should warn you to expect even more this week.  Today I am chatting about what I thought of the Kabaya Juu-C Cola sweets.

OyatsuBox December - 9 - Famous in Japan

Kabaya Juu-C Cola

Varieties available on OyatsuCafe

It seems I have been saying the name of this item wrong – oops! It seems to be Juu-C, and not Joo-C *face palm*

I received a tube of Kabaya Juu-C Cola sweets in my December OyatsuBox, and the allure of cola flavoured sherbet discs was too much for me to resist.  However, I was to be disappointed… *violins play*

I was expecting an explosion of cola flavoured sherbet to rain down on my taste buds.  Instead I got a cola flavoured disc of nothing.  I found the disc to be thin and crumbly.  There was no melt in the mouth action going on, nor did I experience any fizz you would expect with a sweet boasting sherbet properties.

Kabaya Juu-C Cola - Famous in JapanThe cola flavour was nice; it’s the typical cola taste you expect in sweets.  However, even the taste isn’t enough to redeem these sweets in my eyes.  The flavour isn’t long lasting and the sweets are not substantial.  They’re easily eaten and easily forgotten.  They are quite high in sugar, so perhaps they are not the best treat to give to little ‘uns.  I’d imagine they’d be good for a quick sugar boost but I think I’d be more likely to reach for a packet of gummies then I would for these.

I doubt I would buy these sweets again.  I had high expectations for these and I was disappointed.  For a Japanese sweet, they’re boring and nothing special, especially in comparison to other sweets available.

I’ll be reaching back into my stash for something  a little more exciting.  Should I try another DIY candy kit or should I be brave and try something a little more exotic?

    Definitely think you should try some DIY kits or Japanese cosmetics :) I’ve just bought a few Korean cosmetics, I can’t wait to get them :)

    Oh no! What a disappointment! A few years ago I had a similar dull ‘encounter’ with a Japanese lollipop. I can’t even remember the brand anymore but I guess this is the beauty of it all – we’re all different with very different tastebuds! ;-) Looking forward to reading your other Japanese candy posts!
