The classic cake Mont Blanc is now lined up in specialty stores all year round. The "round shape with squeezed marron cream" is almost the same, but the contents and base differ depending on the store, and it's fun to eat and compare.
This time I tried what I found at the supermarket Seijo Ishii.
Seijo Ishii's Mont Blanc CakeOne piece is 459 yen (excluding tax), and the price and size are the same as those of a cake specialty store. Even though Seijo Ishii, can you really enjoy the taste that matches it?
The generously squeezed malon cream has a gorgeous scent with rum. You can enjoy a rich taste with plenty of chestnut flavor. It's not smooth and it's luxurious.
The inside is composed of marron paste in the center, fresh cream to wrap it, and a base sponge.
Marron paste has a chestnut feeling that goes beyond marron cream. You can enjoy the sweetness and deep flavor of the chestnut itself with a rough mouthfeel that looks like a chestnut. Deliciousness that is irresistible for chestnut lovers ...! The taste that changes when combined with mellow fresh cream is also a highlight.
The sponge is a soft sponge that can be finely chopped. Does not interfere with the smoothness of creams and pastes.
What impresses me is the rich taste of chestnuts and the aroma of rum. Satisfaction with each bite is high, and the taste is comparable to that of specialty stores, and the price is reasonable. It looks good with wine as well as coffee! This is a must-try item for Montblanc lovers.
