Morinaga Hi-Chew Strawberry & Green Apple
Name: Green Apple
Ratings: 3.5/5 for Strawberry, 5/5 for Green Apple
So I managed to get my hands on two more flavors of Hi-Chew. Since I already waxed lyrical on the texture of Hi-Chews, I figured I’d just put up a flavor profile for each. I will note that the packages for these said “Since 1975″ on them. I’m not sure if this referrs to the Hi-Chews themselves or the Morinaga company.
Strawberry is milky pink on the outside and dark pink on the inside. This has an extremely mellow flavor–very muted, more so than the lemon. The hints of strawberry are there, but really in some ways it tasted more melon than berry–not watermelon per se, more like canteloupe. It’s slightly astringent and has the tiniest hint of pepper. I liked it, but it wasn’t stellar, and it wasn’t as good as the lemon.
Green apple is light green with a darker green inside. It has a bright, crisp, tart flavor–almost like biting into a Granny Smith apple. It has slight floral notes and a wonderful, full sour taste to it. The chew has a great apple juice apple-taste. It’s absolutely delicious and I love this–it reminds me of the Jolly Rancher Green Apple but sooo much better. 5/5.
I know there’s more flavors out there–I can’t wait to try them all.
