Assorted regional Hi-Chew candy

TOKYO —

Hi-Chew is a famous flavored chewy candy series sold by Morinaga at home and abroad. More than 100 flavors have been released since Hi-Chew was first released in 1975. Just like Nestlé‘s KitKat, Morinaga has been selling seasonal and regional Hi-Chew flavors as well, and certain flavors can only be bought in the region in which they are famous - not in other areas.

However, Morinaga is selling assorted regional Hi-Chew set “Tabisuru Hi-Chew Assort” until the end of April and people can buy it regardless of where they live.

The assorted set comes with 4 flavors: Yubari-melon from the Hokkaido area (4ps), Cherry from the Tohoku area (6ps), Shekwasha (a kind of citrus fruit famous in Okinawa) from the Okinawa area (4ps), and Banana from Hawaii (6ps). Those flavors are usually only available in the areas in which they are famous.

    Considering the Philippines is less than half the distance from Japan, why Hawaiian banana?

    Come to think of it, why Hawaiian anything? Do they think that Hawaii is an outpost of Japan, or something?

    I can buy two different Hi-Chew assortments in the US. I wish we could get more varieties!
