Brown Sugar and Cream: Japan's Uha Cucu Black Milk Candies
Japanese milk candies are usually somewhat lost on my taste-buds. I see the appeal of the creaminess without so much sugar, but they are just a little too bland for much appeal. Uha brand Cucu Black Milk candies, though, are fantastic and really addictive. You have the basic creamy milk hard candy swirled with a brown sugar swirl that tastes almost like molasses. There's a beautiful richness to the flavor that blends so well with the mild cream. They also come individually wrapped in packaging decorated with a sweet dog whose body is comprised of three cucu cubes. I hope I can find the other flavors of Cucu cubes.
Score (compared to other milk candies): 5
Score (overall): 4
Score (brown sugar / molasses anything): 5
