Kanro Ame, a long-selling brand that will celebrate its 70th anniversary next year, is made with simple ingredients: sugar, starch syrup, soy sauce, and salt. This product is one of Kanro’s product development policy of “Making the most of the ingredients.” By making full use of technology and manufacturing methods that make the most of the deliciousness of the ingredients themselves, and combining new ingredients, we create a nostalgic yet new taste. I’m exploring. The website “Kanro Ame Shokudo”, which opened in 2020, publishes various recipes using Kanro Ame. The unexpectedness of using candy in cooking has become a hot topic on social media, and in June 2021, the book “Welcome to Kanro Ame Shokudo” (published by Shogakukan), which is a collection of recipes using Kanro Ame, was released and has been very well received. I have received it.

The newly released “Shio Kanro Ame” is based on the concept of utilizing the ingredients of the “Kanro Ame” brand, and combines the moderate saltiness and flavor of the mellow grilled salt from deep ocean water from Muroto with the characteristic soy sauce of “Kanro Ame”. The “umami-salty” taste that matches the richness of the rice has been very well received.
The package design of “Shio Kanro Ame” has been renewed, and by incorporating a gradation that changes from blue to white and a salt motif, the refreshing “umami-salty” taste of “Shio Kanro Ame” and the salty taste are enhanced. It expressed a worldview. In addition, to make it easier to convey that it is a Kanro candy brand, we have placed the product name and logo in the center, and added an icon that lets you know at a glance that it has a “salty taste” made using domestically produced salt.
In the upcoming season when you want salty taste, please enjoy “Shio Kanro Ame” which has the richness of the traditional Japanese seasoning “soy sauce” and the moderate saltiness and flavor of domestic salt.
