Konpeito is a tiny sugar lump candy that is repeatedly coated with a sugar-based syrup. To produce this snack, the sugar lumps are heated slowly in a large inclined rotating pot called “dora” and by applying the syrup drop by drop, it eventually turns to a ball with many spiky prongs.
This flavor of konpeito features a real lemon flavor, providing a sour taste.
The sourness of the lemon combined with the sweetness of the sugar syrup provides a perfect sweet and sour combination. It is perfect for those who love sweet and sour candies, or those who prefer candies that are not overly sweet.
Konpeito candy has a crunchy texture which makes a distinctive sound every time you chew it. This special candy can be enjoyed by itself, or you can pair it with your tea or coffee, or even add it to plain yogurt or ice cream!
