Have you ever tried gummi candy from other countries? I honestly don’t like gummi candy from the U.S.

Sweden Fish and HARIBO are really popular but these have strong flavor and too much food coloring. The reasons why tourists from all other countries like gummi candy in Japan are because the texture is different between each makers and it tastes real fruits flavor.

Gummi with vitamin and collagen are especially popular with women!

One point advice for oversea travel!

It is better to bring some snacks or sweets from Japan as a souvenir when you go for oversea travel. People who tell you direction when you get lost and people at the front desk and host at hotel,,, you can express the thankful to those people who treat you well during your trip and it could be an opportunity to get close with people by giving them souvenir.
