Hi-Chew Shikwasa (Okinawa Lemon)

February 3rd, 2012 by Rosa

My friends Nana and Justin have been having great adventures while living the expat life and chronicling it all in their awesome blog. They’ve been kind enough to send me great candy finds from abroad, including my all-time most popular review: Crunky Nude Balls. Recently, they mailed me a bunch of Japanese candies, including this pack […]

Hi-Chew Mango (Review)

July 8th, 2011 by Rosa

I received this pack of Hi-Chew Mango as a free sample from Morinaga USA, along with my packs of Hi-Chew Peach and Banana. I thought I’d already reviewed them, but it turns out I had just written a news post about them. The Hi-Chews had an orange-yellow center surrounded by an off-white shell that didn’t […]

Hi-Chew Banana

June 20th, 2011 by Rosa

I got a pack of Hi-Chew Banana from Morinaga USA in the same box that had my Hi-Chew Peach sample. I wasn’t too enthusiastic about trying it because I generally really don’t like banana flavored candies. Artificial banana is not my thing. Banana Runts? Run away! Fortunately, the Hi-Chew banana didn’t taste artificial at all! […]

Hi-Chew Peach

June 15th, 2011 by Rosa

I’ve reviewed Hi-Chew several times on this site. Most of them were gifts from friends or businesses in Asia, so some of them were flavors that aren’t sold in the U.S. The Hi-Chew that I’m reviewing today is U.S.-specific. The company that makes Hi-Chew, Morinaga, has a U.S. subsidiary that sells Hi-Chew in strawberry, green […]

Hi-Chew Assortment – Canned Peach, Melon, Grapefruit, and Cherry

February 16th, 2011 by Rosa

Here’s a quick round-up of a bunch of Hi-Chews that I got as free samples from Tsunami.hk. If you’re not familiar with Hi-Chews, they’re like Asian Starbursts, only chewier and more genuinely flavorful. Canned Peach is an unusual flavor for any candy. I think the Jr. part of the wrapper refers to the fact that […]

Hi-Chew – soda flavors

September 3rd, 2010 by Rosa

These soda flavored Morinaga Hi-Chews came as free samples from Tsunami.hk. Look at the lovely effervescence on those wrappers! They came in three flavors: lemon soda, cola, and white soda. If you’ve never had them before, Hi-Chews are individually wrapped, rectangularly shaped chews that are usually fruit flavored. Their chew is bouncy and mostly not […]

Mango Hi-Chews

September 8th, 2009 by Rosa

I’ve never had the pleasure of eating a fresh mango in tropical Asia, but I can imagine just how scrumptious they could be. According to this article in Gourmet magazine, I don’t have to imagine. I just need to track down some mango Hi-Chews, which are better than the real thing. I admit that I’ve […]

Hi-Chew – strawberry, grape, green apple, and pineapple

October 8th, 2008 by Rosa

In addition to a bag of Crunch Ball Crispy Candy, Nana and Justin also mailed me a nice assortment of Hi-Chew candies in strawberry, grape, and green apple. They were so good that when Asian Food Grocer, an online retailer of Asian food, snacks, and candies contacted me with an offer to send me my […]

Guest Post: Meiji Fruit Gummies Part II

October 19th, 2012 by CamNMere

I was at the Society for Neuroscience conference in New Orleans earlier this week, so I’m turning things over to some globe-trotting friends. Cameron and Meredith are former roommates of mine (we did lots of chocolate truffle tastings together), and they’re writing about some treats they bought on a recent trip through Japan. ~Rosa Here’s the rest […]
