Sometimes spite and anger are the best motivators. When you're wronged or feel slighted, you feel as if you need to do something about it. Whether it's something reckless or focusing your energy into something, you feel much better after letting off some steam. This candy made me want to post.
Suppanda. I've never heard of Kanro before, so I bought this on a whim.
The look on the panda's face implies that this is a sour candy. It
looks like there's a liquid inside the candy, which is always a joy. I
don't know what flavor this is, but it has a flower next to its face and
the package is pink, so I concluded that it was either peach or floral
back doesn't indicate what this candy is besides the panda running
around. The English label just says, "GUMMY CANDY" as they often do, so I
still have no real indication of what this candy is.
It looks pretty good
on my initial taste I knew exactly what flavor this was: ume. This is
not my first brush with ume flavored candy, and I assume that it
certainly will not be the last. Okay, ignoring my prejudice against
pickled plum flavored candy, I have to say that I didn't hate this
candy. The flavor was a medium sour, not quite the first taste of a
warhead, but some notches below it. It had a faint sweet flavor, which
is nice, seeing as how the past few ume flavored candies I've tasted
were either devoid of sweetness or were overpowered by their sour and
I think the thing that really gets me when it
comes to ume candy though is the smell. It's a smell I'm not used to and
it makes me think I'm eating something savory or vegetable-like rather
than a candy. I guess it would be all and good if I were to eat real
umeboshi, which I've only had once, but something about this flavor of
candy just turns me off.
Kanro Suppanda Ume - 5/10, probably higher if you like ume
