The Asahi Dried Umeboshi Jun (B Type) is an additive-free Japanese candy enjoyed by every generation. Many Japanese kids grow up enjoying this classic Japanese sweet that features pinkish-purple tablets made of Umeboshi, or pickled plum flesh. This nostalgic Japanese treat is made by carefully removing the seeds of pickled plum and shiso leaves of Kishu Island and freeze-drying them down to these yummy, easy-to-pop tablets. They have a pleasantly sour flavor profile just like the Umeboshi commonly found and enjoyed across Japan.
