Speaking of dried plums, they are sour. The sourness is concentrated, and as you lick it, it melts away. You can taste it as if you were licking candy, or you can chew it hard and taste the sourness. It’s irresistible for sour food lovers!

A must-have item for people who are prone to motion sickness!

I have weak semicircular canals and get motion sickness easily, so I always rely on dried plums! ! !

Umeboshi(plum) seems to contain a trace amount of a component called “picric acid,” which is said to restore the sense of balance disrupted by motion sickness. In addition, the citric acid contained in it promotes saliva secretion, which restores the function of the semicircular canals to normal.

It’s hard to carry around the pickled plums themselves, so I always keep handy dried plums in my bag.
