“Jelly with 2 layers made from 2 kinds of orange juice . Rich and sour blood orange jelly, refreshing orange jelly with an orange slice.”( Family Mart`s description on product)

Can you believe in this jelly alone there are more than 10 billion shield lactic acid bacteria M-1!
Shield lactic acid bacteria M. is one of Morinaga Milk’s most effective immunity-boosting lactic acid bacteria. It helps protect your body from outside offenders just like a shield would—hence the name. According to their recent experiments, it was even shown to alleviate flu symptoms to a noticeable extent!

Side view of the product. What a vivid gradation! The thinly sliced orange looks so pretty inside.

I opened the package, look at this shiny crushed orange jelly!

Sweet orange jelly and slightly bitter blood orange jelly are so harmonious!
I like how they made the jelly with a firm texture.

I enjoyed this product because It’s rare to find blood orange used in sweets.
