Konpeito is a tiny sugar lump candy that is repeatedly coated with a sugar-based syrup. To produce this snack, the sugar lumps are heated slowly in a large inclined rotating pot called “dora” and by applying the syrup drop by drop, it eventually turns to a ball with many spiky prongs.
This flavor of konpeito features a traditional Japanese matcha flavor.
Real matcha powder is used and heated along with a sugary syrup for a long time, creating a mellow matcha-flavored sugar candy. The heating process cuts the bitterness of the matcha, so even those who are not accustomed to matcha’s unique flavor can enjoy this candy.
Konpeito candy has a crunchy texture which makes a distinctive sound every time you chew it. This special candy can be enjoyed by itself, or you can pair it with your tea or coffee, or even add it to plain yogurt or ice cream!
