Everywhere you go the aisles and shelves are bursting with Halloween decor, costumes, and candy. Today I want to tell you about a yummy candy you may or may not have heard of yet.
These candies are so tasty! The best way I describe them is if Starburst and Laffy Taffy had a baby, it would be Hi-Chew™. But these are better. They are truly bursting with sweet fruit flavor, and they have the consistency of salt water taffy.
Taichiro Morinaga invented what would become the very first Hi-Chew™ in 1956. He sold the strawberry chewlets that chewed like gum, but dissolved in your mouth, so you didn’t need to throw then away when you’re finished. In 1975 the chewlets became Hi-Chew™. Over the years there have been over 170 different flavors. The most popular candy in Japan is now available here in the states for us!
Hi-Chew™ comes in six fantastic flavors! You can choose from strawberry, banana, green apple, mango, grape, and cherry. But why choose? I guarantee you will love them all, so you might want to stock up! My favorites are the cherry and strawberry. Liam loves the strawberry, and my husband is a huge fan of the green apple.
Grab a bag or grab a stick
Hi-Chews™ can be purchased by the bag, which includes just over three ounces of goodness. When you purchase it by the bag, you get the chance to try more than one flavor. You can get cherry and strawberry in a bag, grape, green apple, and strawberry in another, a tropical mix, and so on. Or you can grab a ten stick pack that will easily fit into your purse, backpack, or wallet, so you can have your Hi-Chew™ handy where ever you may roam.
Now we all know that candy isn’t super healthy, but the biggest candy holiday is creeping up on us. Hi-Chews™ candies don’t use dyes in their candies. They get their colors from natural fruit and or vegetable juices. As a parent, I think this is an amazing idea. As the parent of a hyper active child, I really recommend this candy. (Dyes can make our kids more hyper. Add them to sugar, and look out!) So if I can get a candy that eliminates the hyper induced dyes, then I’m all for it!
Where can we get some?
