"Maru-Yubeshi" is a large yuzu candy that I saw by chance. What the heck, it's a wagashi lover's dream, you can't miss it, it looks, no matter how you look at it, no matter how you think about it, it looks delicious. And, what the heck, they cost 1500 yen each. I can't...

The "Maru-Yubeshi" is made by removing the contents of yuzu, kneading and stuffing it with secret ingredients and glutinous rice, steaming it many times, and drying it naturally for about four months. That's why they only make it once a year. No wonder it's so expensive.

When I opened the splendid black box, I found a wrapped Maru-Yubeshi with a dane in it. As soon as I opened the package, the scent of yuzu wafted through the air, and in an instant, it was all over again. Hmmm, what's the size of this yuzu? When I tried to cut it with a knife, it was very hard and difficult to cut, and it was expensive, so I cut it as if I were cutting it off little by little.

As I slowly took it into my mouth, I felt like I was eating a hard yuzu...

Mmm, this is not sweet, it's a mature taste. The rice cake inside was also too hard and chewy. Also, it's not very confectionery-like, like a persimmon before it's ripe, so you shouldn't eat it as is, but you should eat it after you've done something to it. When it's steamed, it regains its original flavor immediately after production, and it's very tasty. Hmm, I don't know what to do.

A few days later. This Maru-Yubeshi had been shredded and was part of the salad for dinner. I'm sorry.
