Hi-Chew Pokédex

Published 2023-01-18 by Seth Michael Larson

I love the idea of having "personal Pokédexes", a set of known things out there in the world that you want to collect. My current personal Pokédex is Hi-Chew flavors. Below I've listed ones I've either tried or aspire to try one day. What's your personal Pokédex?

Flavors

There are over 200 unique flavors of Hi-Chew, so this list is hopelessly incomplete. Even the website only lists 21 flavors. I'll keep the list up-to-date as I find and try new flavors. If I'm missing a flavor or something is incorrect please open an issue or send a pull request.

Rules and format

The only real rule I have is I'm not allowed to import the flavors myself, they have to be somewhere local to me (at the time). I also try to avoid ordering things online, too easy that way!

Hi-Chew are typically sold in "Sticks" of a single flavor, however they are also sold in "Mixes" of 2-3 flavors. Whenever a flavor is offered as a mix I list it in the table. Mix names sometimes are the same between the US and Japan, so I have to disambiguate with US and JP.

Some flavors are slight variants of each other (ie "Lemon" versus "New Sour Lemon"). I'll make a judgement call whether a flavor is unique enough for its own entry.

I don't list any of the "Premium" flavor of Hi-Chew as the texture is apparently more like mochi? I haven't tried one to be sure myself. I also don't list the "Reduced Sugar" because they also change the texture.
