looking for mail-order Japanese sour ume candy

tkalex9052 | Apr 8, 2007 09:58 AM

Hi all--this candy is a classic Japanese treat. It's usually a round purple-red hard ball with a salty exterior and a jelly-like sweet/sour interior. They are designed to mimic the sour Japanese plum (ume), which they do surprisingly well. My teenagers love them, but we don't have any local resources. Any suggestions for reliable online/mail order resources?
