Puccho (ぷっちょ) is a Japanese candy made by the Japanese company UHA Mikakuto. Puccho is one of my favourite Japanese candy due to its unique texture and chewy nature. There are several types of Puccho which include Juushi, Shuwa, and World. There are many different flavours of Puccho including strawberry, cola, grape, orange, lemon, yoghurt, cream soda, blueberry, cherry, peach, mango, melon soda and pineapple. There are also flavours that are unique to certain regions in Japan and these usually make great souvenirs.

Today’s Japanese Snack is about Strawberry Puccho, which is my favourite flavour. Strawberry is one of the Juushi types of Puccho and contains little gummi puccho balls within the candy. This makes the candy more chewy than the rest and gives it its wonderful consistency and texture.

Here is what the Strawberry Puccho packet looks like
