"ISHIYA GINZA" is a directly managed store outside Hokkaido by Ishiya Co., Ltd., which is familiar with "Shiroi Koibito". Sweets that are perfect as souvenirs are on sale, filled with feelings for Hokkaido.
"Saqu LANGUE DE CHAT", which inherits the DNA of "Shiroi Koibito", is a sweet made by sandwiching chocolate with Lang de Cha. Each flavor is baked in an oven under optimal temperature control, and the "multiplication" of chocolate and Lang de Cha creates a unique taste. We are particular about ingredients such as wheat flour, dairy products, and sugar beet from Hokkaido.
I bought "Saqu Assort" which you can enjoy various flavors. The price is 1,944 yen (tax included) with 6 types x 3 pieces each. There are 30 pieces and 48 pieces. The expiration date is 120 days from the date of manufacture.
◆ High milk
Sandwich the original blend of milk chocolate with a simple Lang de Cha. If you want to fully enjoy the deep richness of Hokkaido milk, this is the place to go. The mellow sweet chocolate and the crispy savory Lang de Cha are a perfect match.
Turkish hazelnuts are used for both chocolate and cat tongue. The aroma of hazelnuts, which is different from wheat, spreads softly. It's irresistible for nut lovers!
Caramel is blended with original chocolate made with salt from Okhotsk, Hokkaido. A rich sweetness that is entwined with the tongue. The saltiness that you feel in it enhances the caramel and leads to a sharp rear mouth.
◆ Hokkaido Cheese
Cheesecake-flavored chocolate made by adding Okhotsk salt to Gouda cheese from Tokachi, Hokkaido, sandwiched with lemon-flavored Lang de Cha. The balance between rich cheese and refreshing lemon is exquisite. A taste that is sweet and salty.
◆ Hokkaido Wine
Sandwich chocolate from Hokkaido wine with grape-flavored Lang de Cha. The elegant scent is fluffy from the moment you open the bag. It fills the mouth with a mellow sweetness and leaves a gorgeous finish like after drinking wine.
◆ Matcha milk
Add Nishio's matcha to white chocolate. The mellow richness wraps the fragrant matcha. An authentic school that feels umami and faint bitterness in the sweetness.
Even though the structure of cat tongue and chocolate is the same, it is interesting that the impression is completely different depending on the flavor! Each flavor is also sold as one, but I think it's fun to try and compare them assorted.
