Shochu Ume (marinated plum in Japanese spirit)

I found this brilliant "snack", imported from Japan, at Marukai this week.
It's called Shochu Ume...they are plums (from Japan's Shikoku island) marinated in straight shochu (Japanese spirit)!

The plum contains 14% alcohol, so you must be old enough to be able to buy it. I tried it with my empty stomach before dinner. It was quite strong, and so darn good! I got tipsy.

I'm going back to Marukai to buy more!
