The twelfth item in the "Coffee Jelly" series is Chichiyasu Coffee Jelly PET 270g (9.52oz), sold by Ito En.
Chichiyasu Coffee JellyChichiyasu Coffee Jelly is a coffee jelly drink with a slightly sweet café latte flavor, and is enjoyed by swirling it vertically at least three times to break up the jelly before opening the bottle. The package features a cute illustration of "Cheebo" printed on the package.
The wide mouthpiece allows you to enjoy it as it is, but this time I took the liberty of serving it in a bowl. First, I shook it three times, but it didn't come out. I shook it 10 times to try it out, and larger chunks of jelly popped out. Depending on how you like the texture, I recommend shaking it about 15 times.
The jelly is described as "slightly sweet café latte flavor," but it does not look like a café latte. It is a beautiful black color.
The jelly is thick and smooth, and has a nice soft and fluffy texture. The taste is "café latte flavor"......?
The sourness was stronger than expected. The first thing you feel when you put it in your mouth is the sourness, followed by the sweetness of the sugar. The presence of milk is almost imperceptible, and since it looks completely like black coffee jelly, it is a bit confusing to the brain. ...... If you drink it expecting a sweet and mild taste, you may think, "Oh? You may be surprised.
If you usually drink sour coffee, you may enjoy it, but if you like a mellow and clear aftertaste, this may not be for you. This area seems to be a matter of taste. Personally, I think it is more refreshing to add milk or cream than to eat it as it is.
