Meiji Chelsea Yogurt Scotch

Name: Chelsea Yogurt Scotch
Brand: Meiji
Place Purchased: Mitsuwa Marketplace (Little Tokyo, LA)
Price: $.99
Size: 1.58 oz
Calories per ounce: 120
Type: Toffee/Hard Candy

The Taste of Old Scotland! the candy heralds down the side of the tray inside the calico printed box. What Chelsea has to do with Scotland is beyond me. This is a candy blog, after all, not a geography one.

I’m not sure I know what old Scotland tastes like. But these hard toffees are unlike any other toffee I’ve ever had. First, they’re opaque white and glossy when I unwrapped the piece, unlike the toasty cream color I’m used to.

Putting it in my mouth I found it initially tart. Not in a citrus way, but in the way that yogurt is tart. It’s smooth and creamy, but with a little bite to it.

I found them pleasant, but a little bland. I plan to finish the box, but it’s unlikely I’ll buy yogurt scotch again. However, there is another flavor that I saw at the market, regular butterscotch ... that sounds more my speed.

Rating: 7 out of 10

  1. Ok, I just want to say that I really liked the Yogurt Scotch.

    And I thing the scotch part has to do with the type of candy it is, less than the geography.

    I kind of thought that butterscotch was named that because it tasted like scotch that had been buttered and sweetened.

    But I like all the answers on that site, too.

  4. I actually really liked these ones, and they are more subtle than the butterscotch (which are VERY sweet) so I think I might actually like them more…

  5. hi
    Love your blog.
    I’ve tried the butterscotch and its good. Buy Werther’s will be richer.

  6. These bring back the memories - my parents would buy a packet of these and bring it with them whenever we go shopping. If I was ever hungry while we’re riding a bus, my dad would give me a piece of these! I miss it so..

  8. The Yogurt Scotch tastes exactly like the yogurt flavored drinks.
