Morinaga Milk Industry sells "Craft Mochimochi Kinako -Black Mitsu Tailoring- ". The estimated price is 320 yen (excluding tax) for a pack of 6 pieces.
"Craft Mochi Mochi Kinako -Kuromitsu Tailoring-" is a cheese dessert that combines the three Japanese elements of mochi flour, kinako, and black honey. By adding rice cake powder to cream cheese, an elastic "new texture" is realized. Kinako and black honey are used so that you can feel "Japanese" even in the taste.
Six triangular cheeses are neatly packed in a round package. Each one is wrapped in aluminum, so you can flip it over and carry it to your mouth without getting your hands dirty. It's a hassle to prepare plates and forks when I'm hungry, so I'm happy to be able to eat them right away.
I tried to eatI was surprised at the texture when I ate it with the image of usual cheese! The teeth sink slowly, and it is chewy when chewed. It has a unique texture like a mixture of smooth cheese and soft rice cake. The finish is the same as the product name.
The taste is Japanese sweets rather than cheese. The mellow richness blends with the aroma of kinako. You can also feel the sweetness unique to black honey, and it is elegant yet delicious.
Cheese is often combined with wine, but it seems to go well with green tea and roasted green tea. Perfect for a snack at 3 o'clock or a dessert after a meal.
