"Sponge cake Chocolate"


One day, I received an email that said, "Eat Sho-Oh-Ken's "Sponge cake Chocolate". As a reminder, it's "Sponge cake Chocolate", not Chocotera (though I was the one who made the mistake). So, let's try it.

By the way, Sho-Oh-Ken is a long-established maker that claims to be the originator of castella, but generally, there are many articles that refer to Fukusunaya as the originator of castella, which is older than Sho-Oh-Ken. I'm not sure if it's true or not, because it's quite old-fashioned.


I bought a set of "Sponge cake Chocolate" and castella this time. Then, the faces of the two figures on the box (tsuragamamae) were not good again.

"Sponge cake Chocolate"
The first thing I did was to open the box of "Sponge cake Chocolate" and out came a stunning brown castella-like treat. It had a huge cocoa aroma, and the top and bottom sides were dark brown with a burnt burn, and the bottom side, like the castella, was sprinkled with lame sugar. It is about 2cm thick and has a slit, and when you break it open and eat it, you can taste the cocoa-flavored castella with the occasional crunchy crunch of zalame. There's no reason it shouldn't be tasty.

Castella
Yes, the castella has a crisp, refreshing, gentle sweetness with just a hint of bitterness to give it a deep flavor. I couldn't stay in my mouth for very long, my hands were coming out of my throat, and it was a delicious gem. Yeah, that's the real deal. My family is smiling and my wife is safe.
