Yuutama Jelly “Brocade Balls”

Yuutama Agar Jellies from Japan

Yuutama Agar Jellies from Japan

One of the few omiyage I picked up this season is this paper drum filled with the most delicate sugar-coated jellies from Yuutama.  The agar used to make these jellies is derived from seaweed, giving it the crystal clear appearance.  It’s the same process invented in the 1600s for many Japanese traditional sweets.  Despite the different colors, they’re all flavored like yuzu – very refreshing and light.  I’ll just let the photos speak for itself.  They’re an amazing crystal clear jelly-jello hybrid surrounded by a very thin sugar coating.  Everything about this omiyage is beautiful.  Visit their site for even more eye candy (haha! see what i did there?).
