There is nothing wrong with most gummy sweets but often there is nothing particularly special about them either. Here is something new and different with a unique shape and texture: a yummy gummy that is very popular in Japan. It is called “Fettuccine” because it is thin, long, flat and square-shaped, just like a small piece of fettuccine. It comes in 4 fruity flavors – peach, green apple, grape and lemon. The flavors taste authentic and are very fragrant. The gummy is covered in a light sugary coating with a hint of sourness to make it taste like real fruit. The texture is soft and tender but also chewy - almost like a perfectly cooked noodle. You can enjoy the fruity chewiness and soft juiciness at the same time, and the taste lingers even after you have finished.

Imagine that you are eating a Fettuccine gummy right now. First, you notice the strong fruity fragrance as soon as you open up the pack. You feel the slightly sour sugar coating as you put a piece in your mouth, the sourness tantalizing your taste buds. As you chew the tender and squishy gummy the fruity flavor gets stronger and stronger: refreshing lemon, sweet peach, mellow grape and crisp green apple. It makes your mouth water. The juicy, soft gummy is filling your mouth with fruity sweetness and sourness. You know that soon the sweet will be gone but the taste will stay.
