ukon no chikara now coming in SUPER power format. I can't remember if you take this before or after you go drinking to avoid hangovers. I think it is before.
Last week we took a look at some bentos in the local convenience stores. This week is a mix of sweet and more sweet.
some new 'Slim Kiss' from meiji (winter only)
Quite a few of the convenience stores are trying to improve their line of sweet breads at the moment. Some have launched new brands and improving the display areas. Fresh cream filled breads are kept in refrigerated shelving areas.
These Hokkaido fresh milk caramels look good.
Here is the rest of the display with more breads and sweets
Boku no oyatsu series provides you with a cream omlette made like castera
A little bit unsual but worth a try, Vegetable Chocolate. Also note the Yuzu candy on the left. I bought this and it was really tasty.
If Yuzu is not your thing, then maybe these chunks of ginger? The flavor was ok, but it was a bot too sugary for me. Less sugar, more ginger would be better.
Something you can't eat, Rilakkuma and friends. This is from the Rilakkuma Onsen series. There are a total of 7 in the set to collect.
What do you think about the increase in sweet breads with fresh cream / custard? Do you think it is a passing trend, or a long term seller for conbini’s?
