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 deep wine flavor, made with Portuguese wine. The origin of konpeito is Portugal, so this special flavor truly has not only a rich flavor, but also history
Real Portuguese wine is used and heated along with a sugary syrup for a long time, so the flavor of wine is faint, but surely present. The essence of wine also gives this konpeito candy a beautiful color. This is the perfect candy for wine lovers.
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!
