The En-eating editorial department happened to pass by the Hirota Echika Omotesando store and met a large number of "Omote-kun". So I decided to buy it for today's snack!
"Front" is a cream puff in a cup. Bamboo charcoal is kneaded into the choux pastry, so it looks black. The eyes are made of chocolate and contain custard cream.
Let's eat it right away! So, when I take it out of the cup ...
The whole black picture of the mushroom-like shape is revealed. When you cut it in half, you can see the custard cream packed in a unique shape from the inside!
The choux pastry is crispy and fluffy and has a light texture. It's not charcoal-like. The custard inside is a cream that is "fluffy" rather than "thick". It is not too sweet and has a refreshing taste. The texture and presence are fluffy overall. Yuru-chara!
There were various speculations within the company, such as "It looks like Ma ● Rokurosuke" and "It seems to appear in Dora ● E", but "Omote-kun" is a definite original character. When Hirota, a Western confectionery, came up with a plan to make a product limited to the Omotesando store, it seems that the product was born from the opinion that "it would be cute if you inflate the choux pastry and put your eyes on it."
A rare mascot character "Omote-kun" that can only be bought at the Omotesando store. How about being healed by that pretty face?
