OMGGGG Review by pistachiop
I would die, k**l, do whatever for these lovelies.
The plum is very subtle, wit almost a hint of cinnamon. But super sour…in the best sort of way. (Posted on 7/14/2022)
These are my favorite!Review by Carson
So happy to find these because they're difficult to track down! My favorite sour candy of all time. (Posted on 4/3/2022)
Literally one of best candy in the worldReview by Keegan
This is one of the best candy in the world, I look for it every time I go to get groceries at the Asian market with my parents (Posted on 12/29/2021)
Not Bad! Pretty tastyReview by Nongtipa
I figured I'd try these out since I'm a huge fan of the ribon soft lemon sour candy. These are also great, although personally, I'm used to consuming ume/plum flavor in savory dishes (i love umeboshi) and so this candy is a little disconcerting because the plum flavor tastes just like pickled plum, haha!

Strange at first but left be wanting more!Review by Kyla
Tried these because they sounded interesting, and indeed they were! The outside almost tastes like dirty socks to me (but good somehow??) and the sour inside makes it really fun! Definitely want to buy more with my next candy haul! :) (Posted on 9/30/2020)
Sweetly sourReview by Lewis
Definitely sour but a lovely plum flavour otherwise (Posted on 8/2/2020)
A soft and chewy ume flavored candy with a super sour center.Review by David
I love these candies! Similar to starburst with a pocket of extremely sour powder inside. The plum flavor is quite pleasant and pairs well with the sour punch at the end. These candies also come with a scale of varying sour intensities and your bag may include a rare ULTRA sour piece for professionals only. (Posted on 7/30/2020)
YummyReview by Jazzy
I bought this candy at FYE at the town east mall and I fell in love with Japanese candy. Thank RIBON (Posted on 2/13/2020)
Makes senseReview by White
When I bought this candy, I had no idea what it was. So I bought it to find out what the candy was since there was no English on the bag. I ate it and kept eating it even though I was not a fan of the flavor. It makes sense now that I know it is plum flavored. (Posted on 11/20/2019)
EhReview by Anon
It kind of taste like I put sour grass in my mouth but I'm still eating them and I don't know why (Posted on 8/21/2019)
plumnessReview by josh
flavor of outer ribon candy is a very soft plum flavor but when you bite into the center you get a sour plum mixture that is to die for. idk what the first reviewer had wrong with them but these are great. i will be buying more when they're in stock again. (Posted on 6/6/2019)
I adore theseReview by Meghan
I don't understand why someone would say these are nasty. These are actually very tasty and super sour. I bought these in Japan and loved them so much I had to order through here. Yes they are super sour at the center as described. But they are yummy! Don't listen to the other review saying its nasty. (Posted on 5/5/2019)
nasty but exactly what it claims to be Review by kuku
my experience with this sour Japanese treat was pleasant but with a sprinkle of just nastiness. before giving this product an immediate one star I took a step back not only to wash my mouth of the foul taste but to truly rate it on what it claimed to be. Said candy was advertised as a plum flavored soured sour candy, and that is exactly the description of this gut-wrenching taste left in my mouth. writing this review I feel quite queasy and maybe just maybe I will call for medical help. life alert where are you when I need you most. the one thing I can attest to is that the face made on this packaging is extremely accurate I wonder if that cartoon girl needed life alert as well after eating this product. I truly wonder. anyway your probably wondering why my rating is so high even though my experience was so poor. simply put I knew what I was getting myself into. buy it for the packaging do not INGEST.
