Spring has arrived for sweet potatoes. I found the seasonal "Sakura Sweet Potato" and "Strawberry Sweet Potato". The purchase price at Kuzefuku Shoten is 690 yen for "Sakura Sweet Potato" and 600 yen (excluding tax) for "Strawberry Sweet Potato" with 3 pieces each.
Sakura sweet potatoSweet potatoes that are carefully baked with cherry blossom extract and cherry leaves based on Satsuma Kintoki potatoes from Kagoshima prefecture. It is soothing and smooth, and has a texture closer to bean paste than sweet potatoes. The scent of cherry blossoms blends into the sweetness of sweet potatoes. A Japanese-Western eclectic taste where you can feel the richness of butter. It is a gorgeous finish that seems to be packed tightly with spring in the size of a colony lid.
Strawberry sweet potatoSweet potatoes that are carefully baked based on carefully selected Satsuma Kintoki potatoes, kneaded with white bean paste and strawberry puree. The taste is predominantly mellow sweet potatoes. Strawberries will chase afterwards. Satisfaction is enough because it is small size but dense.
Sweet potatoes have the image of an "autumn snack", but if you wear the scent of cherry blossoms and strawberries, it will be a spring-like snack. It seems that it will make your usual tea time even more gorgeous.
