Shigekix Sour Soda Hard Gums
Ho-boy, Shigekix…anyone familiar with these will know what this review will be about, and can be summed up with one word – sour. The Japanese have done sour in a big way here, and that’s really saying something.
There are a ton of different varieties of these, in the past I’ve tried the Cola and Lemon flavours, as well as a mystery one that I had no info on, and could find nothing on the internet about and hence couldn’t do a proper review, but now we have this. A soda flavoured Shigekix.
What are these? Well the cam is still crap, but basically these are like small American hard gums, covered in sour stuff, most likely just citric acid powder, and these ones were a little sticky as well, but they’re not usually.
What do they taste like? Well, some sort of strange fruit flavour, maybe a bit like Ramune soda, but I’m not totally sure, it would make sense though considering it’s the quintessential Japanese soda drink. But the sourness, my gosh I’ve had nothing like this before. Your face winces, your eyes water, these are hardcore.
My tongue started to hurt before I finished the pack, but these are still so good, they make my mouth water like nothing else. And what made me laugh is that sugar isn’t even first on the ingredients list, whilst so many chocolates do have it first.
The pack has 85 calories, now I’m guessing with the rest but I think it’s 3g Protein, 19.9g Carbohydrates and 0g Fat. Suits me just fine! If you’re into sour stuff, you’ll get a real kick out of these, they’re great fun.
