Puccho (ぷっちょ Putcho?) is a chewy Japanese snack made and sold by UHA Mikakutō Co. Ltd. (味覚糖株式会社 UHA Mikakutō Kabushiki Gaisha?, UHA - Unique Human Adventure). There are two types of Pucchos: stick type (Puru Puccho, Shuwa Puccho, and Suppa Puccho) and puccho gumi. Both types come in many different flavors. There are also ten flavors that are unique to certain regions in Japan, which is common among Japanese candy.

There are many flavors of puccho, including but not limited to: Cola, grape, orange, lemon, yoghurt, blue cream soda, blueberry, cherry, peach, mango, melon soda, pineapple, and so forth.

The gummi puccho squares are a unique consistency similar to a combination of gummy bears and taffy. They often contain gummy "balls" of flavor that are more chewy than the rest of the square. In addition to these balls, there are also "fizz" balls that mimic the carbonation of their soda derivatives.
