Kasugai Gummy Candy
Kasugai Gummy Candy is a line of gummy candies made by Japanese candy maker, Kusagai. They are primarily sold in pouches with individually wrapped gummy discs. The candy is made with real fruit juice (as well as artificial flavors), so they taste far more like the fruit on the label compared to American candies. I bought my first bag of Kasugai Gummy Candy around 2010, and I have been enjoying them ever since. In addition to standard fruit flavors, the line also has more traditional Asian fruits like lychee and yuzu, and even Ramune. One thing I especially like about the packaging is the Mylar interior on the pouch which keeps the gummies soft for a long time.
This is my opinion of each Kasugai gummy flavor, and how I rank them.

|Ramune||4||Definitely has the extremely sweet taste of Ramune.|
