1st Place in the 2017 JR East Japan Omiyage Grand Prix Sweets Division
Consecutive 3-Year Winner From 2012 of 1st Place in Monde Selection
Each is individually wrapped in vinyl.
The kinako will fall off while eating no matter what you do, so this vinyl wrapper is important for keeping tidy.
The package contains plenty of kinako and 3 pieces of mochi.
If you open it on the vinyl wrapping, it’s an easy to eat treat without need for any dishes.
First I tried it with just the kinako coating!
The mochi are made only of sticky rice flour, sugar, and syrup. It’s chewy, and has just the right amount of sweetness.
The kinako is fragrant, and it’s a nostalgic flavor.
When you add on the special brown sugar syrup, there’s a huge boost to fragrant sweetness!
There are 7 package sizes available, containing a range from 2 to 20 pieces.
Does not contain these specified 7 allergens: milk, egg, wheat, buckwheat, peanut, shrimp, crab.
