Hello! I have to say, moving house (and counties!) made it hard to crack into my July OyatsuBox that I received a few days before the big move. I did however manage to snaffle a few of the items into my suitcase to road test here and there. Today I am sharing the love for the Mitsuya Cider Lemon Candies.
Mitsuya Cider Lemon Candies
My first thought with these were “cider flavoured sweets?” but luckily for me, the term cider is used to describe a different kind of drink in East Asia. In Japan, cider refers to a soft drink that is similar to lemonade. You could say these sweets are like lemonade flavoured sweets!
Each sweet comes individually wrapped; I like the idea of these being kept fresh but I also feel it’s a bit of a waste especially when my room ends up being covered in the little wrappers. I keep finding them in the most unusual of places…
I’m not usually the biggest fan of boiled sweets if I’m honest, but these are lovely. With them being lemon flavoured I braced myself for the inevitable raisin face induced by the flavour but there is none of that here. The taste is just right; a subtle lemon flavour that actually does remind me of lemonade! I have to say, the fizzy outer layer is so addictive. The fizz reminds me of lemon sherbet, but more fizzier and that effect being more long lasting. I always end eating two of these at a time!
The Mitsuya Cider Lemon Candies have become a real favourite for me and I would buy these again in the future. I received a different variety in my September OyatsuBox, and no doubt I will be loving those also.
