For something a little different, I’m going to review three different flavours of Puccho: Imperial Apple, White Soda and Bubble Tea.
As long time readers will have guessed already, I bought these from TofuCute.com. Though they might not all be in stock right now, it’s always worth checking back. Stock changes frequently enough to make it worth looking regularly.
Puccho is a brand of individually wrapped sweets, in nice little packets. These sweets are quite firm to the tooth and chew forever. Chew, chew, chew. Then chew some more.
In my experience they’re really good and oddly addictive.
This fresh and high quality apple flavour is made from the juices of four popular Japanese apples; offering an undiluted, unadulterated apple taste sensation.
I love apple flavours, and this sweet delivers. It’s like rich, concentrated cloudy apple juice – but with the sharpness of fresh apples knocked out by sweetness and sugar.
White Soda Apple
This white soda variety consists of a milky yoghurt flavoured chewy candy, with fizzy soda pieces to create a lovely contrast of texture and a taste similar to Calpis soda. As well as this, there are fruity apple flavoured gummy pieces embedded inside each one!
Well, this is different.
Embedded in the sweet are little white crumbly bits. They add a touch of sherbet-like fizz. Then at the centre of the sweet are little firm, chewy apple flavoured gummy balls.
Before I realised all that though, my first impression was: “Tastes like bubblegum and apple juice had a baby.” That assessment still stands. Thumbs up!
The taste is sweet like a brown sugar milk tea and they’re just the right amount of chewy. Embedded inside each piece are slightly chewier delicious gummy bits, adding an extra dimension of taste and texture, just like a real bubble tea!
Oh, wow. This really does taste like tea! The taste registers like… a tea bag and brown sugar. I know that sound negative, but it’s not. Keep with me on this.
When I say it tastes like a tea bag, what I mean is that scent you get from the black tea leaves at the bottom of a properly made ‘old fashioned’ brew, or the aroma from a black leafed tea bag when you take it out of hot water. The flavour here is awesome. It’s full on, well defined and thoroughly enjoyable. As the tea mellows out, there’s a milky sweetness and that caramel-hinted brown sugar knocks out any tea-leaf bitterness you’d otherwise find with a black leaf brew.
Very sweet, but delicious.
All three are winners in my book!
