The autumn / winter tradition "Yakiimo" has become a drink !? The HOT drink "Yakiimodayori" will be on sale from October 17th at some of the station Naka vending machines inside JR East Station. Pre-sale at Kawagoe Station from October 10th. The price is 140 yen (tax included).
This is a dessert drink with the image of grilled potatoes. In addition to reproducing the "sweetness" and "fragrance" of baked goods, it is said that it is a cup that pursues "drinking".
I got it before it was released, so I tried it.
"Yakiimo News", what's the taste ...?When I transferred it to a cup, the liquid was surprisingly clear and light golden. It looks like apple juice. … But…, when you bring your mouth close to it, you will find a sweet and fragrant scent that is like grilled rice.
When I drank it, it had a sweetness like honey. It is smooth and easy to drink, and surprisingly it has a taste that does not choose the scene.
If you expect a feeling of warmth, it may be a little over-the-top. It seems that the flavor of yuzu tea and ginger drink is similar. Recommended when you want to take a break on a cold day!
