Juicy Fruit Flavor’s Japanese Sweets of Hi-Chew

Which is the most delicious flavor Japanese sweets of Hi-Chew?

Hi-Chew is a chewy Japanese candy. Is it a chewing gum or candy? I have the impression that it’s a really strange sweet, but Hi-Chew of Morinaga is popular not only in Japan but also abroad.

“Green apple”

It has a taste of a juicy fruit fresh from the tree, and apple fragrance is refreshing.

“Japanese Orange(Kotatsu De Mikan)”

In cold winter in Japan, Japanese warm themselves in a Kotatsu which is a Japanese foot warmer and eat Mikan(Japanese oranges). For such a custom, this product is named “Japanese orange (Kotatsu De Mikan).” Sweetness of Japanese orange and refreshing fragrance of orange peel make a superb combination. The picture of a middle-aged man on the package is pretty, too.

There are “strawberry flavor” and “grape flavor”.

Sweetness of strawberry and grape is familiar to us, so the taste is not hit-or miss and we can eat it without worry. There are some Hi-Chew which seem to be good to shake off your drowsiness.

“Lemon flavor”
