Slime-flavored chewing gum developed by Lotte lets you chew on Dragon Quest’s villain
Dragon Quest fans picture slime differently. For them, the usually gooey toxic green substance is a jolly blue villainous character, more reminiscent of a gummi. And as all Dragon Quest fans have probably thought before, the Slime from the game series does look pretty appetizing. For those looking to pop a piece of Slime, Lotte has just come up with a new Fit’s MAGIQ Slime Flavor chewing gum, inspired by the game character. Packing tiny yellow sour chips in between that pop on your tongue, unleashing a sour though delicious taste, this Slime flavored chewing gum also sports a chewy texture, just like the Dragon Quest Slime character, using gelatin and xanthan gum thickening agents for the final result. Priced at 130 Yen a pack, the Slime flavored gum is expected to hit Japanese store shelves by October.
