Karuizawa Long-established jam & confectionery workshop "Shirakabado"Karuizawa's long-established jam and confectionery workshop "Shirakabado". We will deliver 3 souvenirs that you would like to personally recommend from the many products in the store.
Karuizawa Tart Walnut / AlmondThe first is the representative sweet "Karuizawa Tart Walnut / Almond" that has won the Monde Selection Gold Award. A palm-sized tart with plenty of butter and almond powder. The price for 5 pieces is 650 yen.
Many tarts have a crispy dough, but this is moist overall. It unravels and enjoys the rich flavor of wheat and butter. Accented with fragrant walnuts and sliced almonds. It is a rich dish with a deep richness that remains even after you finish eating.
The shelf life is about two and a half months. As it is individually wrapped, it is a perfect souvenir for work or school.
Kusa mochiThe second is "Kusa Mochi" in a green bag. Black honey and toothpicks are included separately. 7 pieces, the price is 600 yen.
The scent of wormwood is fluffy from the moderately elastic mochi. The fragrance of kinako and the deep richness of black honey are entwined there. The slight saltiness that remains in the mouth is indescribably delicious. It may be good to enjoy it with Japanese tea. The shelf life is about one and a half months.
Pudding raw dorayakiThe third is "Purin Nama Dorayaki," which I recommend for myself. The price is 250 yen. It is sold frozen, and after thawing, please refrigerate and eat within 2 days. I ate on the way back from the Shinkansen.
Smooth fresh cream is sandwiched between the moist and soft dough. The cream is mixed with milk custard pudding and has a rich and mellow taste. It is finished in rich Japanese sweets that are integrated with the elegant sweet dough.
The bittersweet homemade caramel is accented here and there. The combination of caramel enhances the "pudding feeling". You can feel luxurious as if you were chewing on cream dorayaki and pudding at the same time.
The "raw dorayaki camembert cheese" that I bought together is also excellent. The taste of cheese and the slight acidity were surprisingly compatible with the dorayaki dough. If you like cheese, don't miss it.
