Bunmeido's "Summer Mikan Castella" was on sale, so I bought it, although it's still a while in the summer. When you open the box and open the seal, you will feel like you are ahead of the season with a flood of strong citrus fruits.
The price is 675 yen (tax included). Bunmeido's seasonal castella is all in pretty boxes, but this time as well. When you open it, you will see a castella sealed in transparent packaging.
When you add scissors, the citrus scent rises from the cut end as soon as possible.
The contents are cut into 5 pieces, and each piece is a size that is easy to eat at one time. Is the color more heartless orange than plain castella?
When you take it with a fork and eat it, it has a strong citrus flavor reminiscent of a Western confectionery orange cake. The mouthfeel is fluffy at first, but the aftertaste is moist and a little chiffon-like.
The sale started in mid-April, but it's a refreshing finish where you can feel the signs of early summer. It's a taste you'll want to eat with iced tea in an air-conditioned room.
