Rock Melon Jelly from Hokkaido


This a gift from an uncle whom has recently visited Hokkaido. As the title says, it's rock melon jelly and I was told that these jellies can only be made during the fruit's season. In each of this simple yet elegantly packaged boxes comes 6 plastic containers of the really fragrant jellies. Included in the box is an envelope packed with plastic spoons for use.

The texture of these melon jellies are more coarse unlike gelatine. But it is sweet and literally bursts into a strong rock melon flavour when it hits your tongue. There was even tiny specks of rock melon skin in them. It's really good stuff, I have no idea how much a box cost, but it probably doesn't come cheap being where it came from.

Not to mention the texture! Ooh.. soft and chewy at the same time, each bite oozing with a flavor that can only be tasted to be appreciated fully. You're not helping Junie, Liquidshadow, but me neither haha! =P
