I always buy Mangosu as a souvenir," she said in an email. The names of the sweets from Okinawa are so intriguing that I can't sit still for long. This letter "Su" makes me think of a sour image, but I don't know what to think.

I was wondering what it was all about, but then I found out that "Su" refers to a pastry made of sheep's milk, lard and flour. I heard that there is a similar pastry in Taiwan. I had a piece of "Su" called "Pineapple Cake" later.

[ Mangosu ]
When you try Mangosu, which at first glance looks like a cookie, you'll see that it is made of dried fruit inside There is a sticky jam in it, which I believe is an apple mango, based on the ingredients . So, to put it crudely, it tastes a lot like a raisin butter sandwich. No, it's a low butter raisin sandwich, I guess.

[ Ryukyusu ]
This one has a kind of quirky taste to it - and that's the taste of pineapple. The pineapple was too strong, but it didn't taste like a cookie. If I had to guess, the buttery flavor seems to have been lost. Well, I prefer Mangosu, but my family likes Ryukyusu... Strange things.

By the way, the sweets for the souvenir are all expensive ones. If they are sold, they are profitable.
