Japanese Candy Makers

The traditional Japanese method of producing candy has introduced something novel to the world. The brand's goods are all genuine and infused with a traditional Japanese spirit. Japan has a huge selection of high-quality confectionery, from well-known brands to exciting new products. Candy in Japan goes far beyond ready-made, on-the-go delights. It seizes both the clients' hearts and their tongues.

We were curious to find out how Japanese candy is made, but just like Willy Wonka's Factory, it's really hard to get a tour of a Japanese candy factory. Luckily, we were able to partner with Coris, makers of our favorite Whistle Candy, to see how some Japanese candies are made!

Behind the Scenes in Coris Candy Factory

For this special treat, we invited long-time subscriber Tony Hawk to come tour with us and see how some of the items he picked out for September's Crate were being made. Tony even got to meet the President of Coris!

Before getting started with the tour, we were required to wear sanitary garments....they made us feel like surgeons from a scary movie... Maybe next Halloween costume? The lighting in the picture doesn't help. Once we were all dressed and ready to go, we headed into the factory. We expected the factory to have a lot of automated assembly lines with mostl machines running everything. We were pleasantly surprised to instead see many people checking and packaging the candy!

When it comes to making confectionery, Japan is highly inventive. Sweets frequently come in flower and leaf shapes, as well as a variety of flavors, some of which are pretty peculiar, and Coris Whistle Candy is no exception. These Japanese candies have the same form as polo mint candies but are flavored with ramune, a common Japanese soft drink that tastes a lot like lemonade. Each candy includes a tiny hole in the center that allows you to blow air through it. This Japanese candy in the shape of a donut is packaged with a mystery toy that changes color when exposed to light.
