Gummi Sushi

Name: Mikakuto Osushi Gummy
Brand: Uha-Mikakuto (distributed by Hosada Bros)
Acquired from: www.candywarehouse.com
Price: $14.90 for a set of two boxes
Size: 1.41 oz
Calories per ounce: 98
Type: Gummi/Marshmallow

This has got to be one of the cutest candies I have ever seen. It’s gummi sushi. The fish is little fruit-flavored gummies, the rice is marshmallow and there’s a little chocolate goo inside the marshmallow (I’m not sure what that’s supposed to be).

 

Inside the box are eight individually sealed pieces. There’s a huge variety. As far as I can tell: a grape octopus, a pineapple roe, a raspberry tuna, a green apple something (looked kinda like edamame, but you don’t usually have that on rice), a berry shrimp ... I think that’s about it. I’m guessing the variety differs depending on random chance. There’s a little guide on the inside of the lid ... in Japanese, but at least it shows you all the varieties.

 

The gummi part is very fragrant, soft and fresh. The marshmallow is a really nice complement to the tart gummi, but the chocolate center just kind of ruins it for me.

As a gift or stocking stuffer, this is great. It’s novel and well packaged (easy to wrap) and the images on it are really cute. It’s a little expensive, but I’d be willing to buy something like this for the right person. For just eating, I’ll probably stick to regular gummi bears.

Interesting fact from wrapper: no MSG!

Rating - 7 out of 10 (because of the price and funky chocolate filling)

  2. oh wow. chocolate and gummy? daring. the green stuff is probably seaweed salad. they serve that as green grass rolls. one of my favourite. also could be avocado or cucumber, though. adorable!

  3. Maybe the chocolate center is supposed to be like wasabi… the fun surprise in the middle if you’re not careful!

  5. Actually, judging from the fact that it’s a brown chocolate center and from eat lots of real sushi (I like raw salmon) I’d say that the chocolate is supposed to be the soy sauce. You know, when you eat sushi, there’s this little dish that you put soy sauce with a little wasabi mixed in to dip the sushi (or sashimi- fish without the rice) in?

    (Offtopic thing- my parent always said if your eating sushi with raw fish in it, you should always add a little wasabi to your soy sauce- it’s supposedly supposed to “kill” the germs on the raw fish.) And I’m Chinese American folks.

  9. It’s a shame these aren’t available anymore.  I’d have loved to try them as I love sushi in any form, shape or substance.

  10. Pineapple roe and berry shrimp sounds yummy, though I would happily eat any of these cute creations!
