짱!셔요 is a brand of sour gummies that you often find at the 7-11 and other mini stops around Korea right up at the register! They cost about 700원 and if you are a fan of sour gummies these hands down are the easiest brand to find in Korea. The packet I have here has the characters on the outside, they are on a lot of sugar snacks atm so its not always the normal packaging with this candy ♥
This flavor is the one I see the most often in my area, its bone shaped and is an assorted fruit flavor. One bag gives you a nice handful of candy in 3 flavors with this pack, the individual flavors are not super distinctive though~ just a general sour fruity taste when I ate them! No IN YOUR FACE OMG THIS IS GRAPE going on with the purple ones lol.
I wish I could like these candies more since they do not taste too bad, but the texture bugs me. This brand of candy is super mushy soft, so its just like I am attempting to chew a soft pile of sugar paste in my mouth. I love sour gummies like Habribo or Sour Patch kids that have just a bit of chew to them… these are like baby food when I try to eat them though 😛 maybe because they are meant for young kids so they thought they had to make them as soft as possible? I dunno!
This candy also comes in a bottle shaped “cola flavor” which is coke flavored (not to be confused with blue “soda” flavor like some candies are in Asia) I like this one a lot more, but its hard to find in my area and still all mushy-mush soft so I don’t crave buying it….I would kill for some Habribo sour cola gummies atm though!T_T

While I was looking up some info on this brand I also found out about another flavor/shape type that was actually little balls…looked interesting. I have never spotted it in a store and cant find them being sold in great quantities online though, so it must be a discontinued style or flavor.
