Pachitto Hi-Chew Lemon Fruit Chew

I've had some negative experiences with various flavors of Pachitto Hi-Chew candy (see custard pudding or golden apple). The lemon flavor, though, blends perfectly with the dense consistency of the chewy rice candy (think of chewing a starburst, and then double the jaw strength necessary), offering a mellow, almost milky citrus tang. Refreshing and unique but somewhat bordering on bland.
Score: 3
