Eat with Your Eyes: Ogontoh

While I might complain of some candies being too sweet, I love candies made from straight boiled sugar. The Japanese traditional candies of Juntsuyu and this Ogontoh are gorgeous examples.

Ogontoh

These little pieces are like gems or beads. They taste like toasted sugar. They dissolve slowly and have an exceptionally smooth texture with no voids or bubbles at all. The yellow color is all natural, simply the result of the sugar boiling to the not-quite-caramelized state.

  1. I’ve had this candy before and I LOVE IT.  Where can I buy it, because I went to AsianMunchies.com but I didn’t see any check out button to place the order.  WHERE CAN I BUY THIS DELICIOUS CANDY?!

    Katie - I’ve been buying a similar product called Juntsuyu, which comes in a mixed bag of both the plain and tea version. I get it on JBox.com.
