Here at Eating WDW, we’re big fans of Ramune soda. While we enjoy many of the flavors available, you just can’t go wrong with the “original” flavor. Kasugai created a variety of gummy candy which we love, so combining the classic flavor of ramune in a candy gummy was right up our alley.
Each gummy contained in the bag is individually wrapped, and the 3.59 ounce bag contains approximately 24 pieces. Upon opening the bag, I could immediately smell the sweet lemon-lime flavor of the soda.
Upon eating my first piece, it was kind of reminiscent in flavor to ramune, but it tasted a tad off to me. Not off as in it had gone bad, but that something was lost in translation into the gummy form. After chewing, the sweetness became a bit cloying when it hit the back of my throat. I gave another one a try, but the same thing happened. Matt, on the other hand, has been working on the remainder of the bag for me. He seems to like them, but I prefer a bit of tartness in gummies, like the kiwi ones we had before.
If you like ramune and gummy candy, give these a try. I don’t think I’d buy this particular flavor for myself again, but I’m sure there are others (like Matt) who enjoy them. For me, I’ll just have the bottle of ramune, thank you. 🙂
