I love UHA.  Of all three brands I commonly see (UHA, Morinaga and Meiji), I'll almost always go with UHA.  It's because I fell in love with their Puccho candy (I'll get around to writing about that someday).  Now I started learning Japanese, I can actually read the hiragana and/or katakana on the packaging.  Anyway.

The package is a bright fucshia color.  I think they changed the packaging though; at least, it's not the same as the one on their website, and I don't remember seeing this packaging before.  When you open it, you get that grape candy smell.

The candy itself is sour.  Like, really sour.  Like, burn-your-tongue-and-throat-with-acid sour.  The candy is smaller than a penny.  It's covered in this white, rough coating, and I think that's the sour part.  And then you get to the grape part and it becomes much sweeter.  I'm not a big fan of grape flavored candy in general, but this one is okay.  It doesn't taste like cold medicine or whatever synthetic fluid they call grape juice is.  It tastes a bit like Concord grapes. 

The gummy itself is way harder than most gummies I've had.  It's not like gummi bears, which you can decapitate in one bite.  It's tough and you can chew at it for quite a while.  I don't mind the flavor or the texture that much.  I tend to just chew away at them without really paying attention to how many I've eaten, but I wouldn't really make this part of my regular candy stash.
