WOW! JAPAN

Popular Brands Introduced! Three Select Department Store Specialty Foods

In late April, three popular brands opened shops on the B1 floor of Hankyu Department Store Umeda Main Store and Daimaru Umeda. Attractive products such as croquettes that Calbee, popular for its potato chips, aims to make the best in Japan, and UHA Mikakuto's upgraded gummy sweets that may become the next new specialties have appeared. We recommend purchasing them as Osaka souvenirs!

Calbee's Snack Croquetts (390 JPY/packet of 8) / B1 Hankyu Department Store Umeda Main Store


Croquettes developed by the potato chips manufacturer, Calbee, and Hankyu Department Store recreate the tastes of the popular potato chips. There are five flavors, including consommé punch. They are 3-cm wide bite-size croquettes with a fluffy yet smooth texture.

Cororo (540 JPY for 4 bags of 2) by Cororo /B1F Hankyu Department Store Umeda Main Store


Cororo, the new type of juicy and soft gummies by the popular UHA Mikakudo Co., has evolved further with the collaboration of Hankyu Department Store Umeda Main Store. They are bigger, and the fruit flavors have been enhanced by adding the flesh and juices of fruits. There are six flavors, including kyoho grape, muscat, lemon, plum, white peach, and cranberry. The texture of the juices spreading in your mouth can be addictive.
