...The title of the book is "Eating Hakatano-Hito", which makes me feel like I'm in trouble.

The wrapping paper "Hakatano-Hito" was so beautiful, it was like a Hakata doll! I was completely captivated by it. I didn't think there was an explanation, but on the official site, there was also a Hakata doll on the cover! There is an explanation that he made the same thing.

By the way, there were (I think) Hakata dolls in my parents' house. It was a plump Hakata doll among the various Hakata dolls, and my grandmother, who received it, was plump. Now I wonder if that was the one that came to my house instead of a beauty doll. I wonder what my grandmother would have thought if it had been a skinny, beautiful doll. While I'm thinking about this, I wonder what the women who received these sweets would have thought or something like that...

Well, when I first saw these sweets, they were called "Date Scrolls" (from Wikipedia) It reminds me of the first time I saw a Hakatano-Hito. So, when did this Hakatano-Hito thing start? I found out that it was from 1972 (from the official website).

When I opened that beautiful package, it was like baumkuchen from inside, with anko in the center. A small piece of candy came out. Then I sniffed it out as usual, and it smelled sweet and delicious~. So I took a bite, and I realized it was indeed Baumkuchen. The sweet bean paste in the center of the cake added color to the flavor in a mild and limpid way. Yes, it was good. There's no way it can't be good. What can I call it, rich and delicious~.

It's a bit smaller than a ping-pong ball, bite-sized. Yes, 3 pieces per person is a little unsatisfactory. I'd like to eat some more~. If you buy it (or get it), you can keep it in the fridge. Hmmm, the short shelf life is a sign of good taste~.
