I just received a new shipment of Mentos from Japan. Mentos Ambassador Roth comes through again with a new flavor to add to the collection. The flavor is “Ume,” which they tell me means “Japanese Plum.” The Mentos themselves are a very light orange color (unfortunately not the purple/green mix color on the package). They do taste like plum. They have a subtle plum flavor which is good. I think that a strong flavor might be a bit overpowering. They have a bit of a tangy aftertaste.
