Taneya pistachio Japanese sweets"Pistachio" sweets that are becoming more common these days. The bright green is eye-catching.
I found a product using the pistachio for Japanese sweets in the basement of the department store. These are Taneya's "Pistachio Daifuku" and "Pistachio Bure".
Pistachio DaifukuA Japanese confectionery that is eaten by sprinkling the attached pistachio on Daifuku wrapped in red bean paste. The price was 756 yen (tax included) for 3 pieces. The box is also a vivid light green, which is rare for Japanese sweets.
Pistachios are from Sicily, Italy. It is crushed into various sizes, large and small, and sugar and salt are added. I am glad that the excess amount is luxurious even if it is sprinkled on the whole.
Daifuku is a coarse rice with a grainy texture, and the bean paste is as smooth as possible. Daifuku is surely delicious as it is, but with the addition of the aroma and richness of pistachio, it becomes even more profound! The crunchy and slightly changing texture is also good.
Combined with the slightly effective salt, the overall image is modest in sweetness. Recommended for adult snacks and desserts.
PistabureA simple sable finished with only pistachios, sugar, eggs and salt. The price was 648 yen (tax included) with 3 individual packages.
The bite-sized sable has a crispy and light texture. As you chew, the pistachio flavor gradually increases and lasts for a long time.
The sweetness is slight, and the impression is that it is closer to a lightly baked rice cracker than a cookie. I think that even people who are not sweet can eat deliciously. It looks good not only as a tea confectionery but also as a snack for wine and other alcoholic beverages.
