Differences in colorWhen placed side by side, the regular Puchin Pudding is more vibrant in color, while the plant-born one has a more subdued hue.
First, let's start with the regular Puchin Pudding! It is smooth and pliable, with a rich caramel and moist sweetness. Yup, tasty as usual!
On the other hand, both the pudding and caramel of the plant-born Puchin Pudding are less sweet than the regular ones. While regular pudding is sweet from the start, the plant-based pudding is sweeter, and the sweetness gradually follows. The flavor of soy milk and almonds spreads softly. The gentle sweetness derived from cane sugar is then added. If you like soy milk or almond milk, this is a must-try!

The plant-based Puccin Pudding has a gentle overall flavor, so you don't get sick of it.
The plumpness of both puddings is perfect! It's nice to be able to eat pudding even if you are allergic to it.
The plant-based pudding has a lot of soy milk and almond flavor, so it may not be suitable for those who don't like them.
I think the taste of plant-based pudding is a little bland compared to the regular pudding. But I guess it doesn't bother me as long as I eat it by itself.
Some of the comments were as follows. Personally, I was surprised that the "plant-based" pudding was more "pudding" than I had imagined. I think it is a great point that children who are allergic to pudding and cannot normally eat pudding can easily purchase it.
