Bandai’s Candy division has announced that it is releasing a new line of Pikmin gummies, sized and colored to look like actual Pikmin with their own colors to match. Included in each pack is a rarer white Pikmin with a unique flavor. Bandai will begin selling the gummies in Japan starting September 2021, and each pack will cost ¥108 (about $1).

Officially titled “Pikmin Taberareru~ Gummies”, these gummies will come in four different variations each featuring two separately flavored parts. The three “regular” gummies include the grape-flavored blue Pikmin, apple-flavored red Pikmin, and lastly the orange-flavored yellow Pikmin. Additionally, the leaf parts are flavored to taste like muscat grapes.
The rarer white Pikmin tastes like lemon, with its pink flower featuring a strawberry flavor. The white Pikmin is said to be particularly sour, fitting its special poison abilities. Each gummy is reportedly the size of a cherry tomato, similar to the actual height of Pikmin in the game.
