The author purchased the "Kamakura Hanzuki Three-Color Assortment," a combination of the regular flavors "Matcha" and "Ogura," and the seasonal "Kamakura Peanut Hanzuki. The price starts at 1.080 yen for a pack of 10 pieces, which includes 5 pieces of Kamakura half moon (3 pieces of matcha and 2 pieces of kogura) and 5 pieces of Kamakura peanut half moon.
Printed on the package are cute bunnies. Each confectionary has its own story, and you can enjoy eating them while enjoying the story.
The dough of the Kamakura half-moon is crispy and crackles when you bite into it. It has just the right amount of crunchiness and crackles every time you bite into it. The cream sandwiched inside is light and fluffy. The moist and sweet Ogura and the bittersweet green tea are both so rich in flavor that you could eat as much as you want! It seems to go well not only with green tea, but also with black tea and coffee.
