On December 20th, "Shinchan Manju, the sun rises again" will appear. In addition, on the 25th, the bird-shaped steamed bun "Returning Japan!" Was also released.
On December 26th, when Prime Minister Abe was born, the En-eating editorial department purchased and tasted these two products.
■ "The sun rises again Shinchan Manju" is a small red and white manju
"The sun rises again Shinchan Manju" is an image of "Japan, the land of the rising sun", and the package has an illustration of Prime Minister Abe dressed as Prince Shotoku. The contents are small red and white steamed buns. The taste was also normal. There is nothing special to mention except that it is one of the delicious red and white buns.
■ Bird-shaped steamed bun "Return Japan to birds!" Is Hiyoko steamed bun?
The bird-shaped steamed bun "Returning Japan to the bird!" Looks like a chick manju itself. If they were placed side by side, wouldn't there be so many people who could distinguish them?
But the taste is quite different. "Return Japan!" Has a softer dough than Hiyoko Manju. In addition, Hiyoko Manju is characterized by containing bean paste made from hidden beans, but the bean paste of "Returning Japan to Japan!" Contains modern-style bean paste, or worse, less characteristic bean paste. Which one you think is more delicious will have different tastes.
■ There is also "Ishin Hachisaku"!
The souvenir shop also sold "Ishin Hachisaku," which uses Hassaku juice from Wakayama prefecture. This is a Hassaku-flavored cream sandwich. The package is based on the motif of Toru Hashimoto, acting representative of the Nippon Ishin no Kai. It has a crispy and light taste, and when you notice it, you will eat many pieces, which is dangerous for people on a diet.
The moment I got the "Ishin Hachisaku", the impression was "Oh, it's light!". It's natural because it's a cream sandwich, but the package is obviously lighter than "Return Japan!". When weighed, the "Ishin Hachisaku" weighs about 220 grams. It turned out to be more than 100 grams lighter than "Return Japan!"
■ What is your sales?
The sales of this kind of politician goods are greatly influenced by the popularity of the politician. Among the politician goods sold in the past, Shinzo Abe-related goods were as popular as Junichiro Koizumi's goods. The last "Birth Shinchan Manju" during the Abe administration sold about 550,000 units in a year and set a sales record.
The start of this "Sun rises again Shinchan Manju" is said to be good. What will happen to sales in the future?
■ By the way, what are the goods of former Prime Minister Noda?
Good news for former Prime Minister Noda fans. At the souvenir shop at the entrance of the House of Councilors of the Diet Building, I found that former Prime Minister Noda's goods were still on sale. That "loach karinto" still remains, albeit a little. This is delicious, isn't it? Former Prime Minister Noda fans and Karintou fans, please before it sells out.
Former Prime Minister Noda's goods were already sold out at the shop next to the Kokkaisankan Bus parking lot.
