Morinaga's - Kurogoma Caramel (Japan)
I purchased the Morinaga's Kurogoma Caramel, packaged
along with the milk and Kokutou caramels, before I left
Tokyo at Narita airport.
The Kurogoma caramel is a sesame seed based caramel,
and is smooth and soft like the standard milk caramel. The
caramel has an unusual gray color and a subtle flavor
upon initial tasting. However, after a bit of chewing the
candy leaves a heavy sesame aftertaste.
I typically enjoy caramels and also sesame flavored candy,
but I'm not enticed by the sight of gray colored sweets
(the gray coloring is likely from the black sesame).
