Japanese food brand Nissen recently put together an experimental candy flavored after ramen broth that offers the popular noodle dish in a candied sugar form. The hardened sweet creatively offers the flavors of tonkotsu pork soup as a sugary treat.

The flavor was a contest winning suggest that was selected amongst thousands sent in by fans. The candy offers savory tastes in a slow dissolving sugar treat available in 2.5-ounce bags. The candy is said to have a similar taste to the tonkotsu soup prepared in a new solid format that is also enjoyed at room temperature instead of hot.

The bizarre candy flavor speaks to consumers boldly looking to experiment with both sweet and savory flavors in avant-garde and new textures.
