Peanuts Monaka


Recently, Peanuts Monaka, a mixture of peanuts, a specialty of Chiba Prefecture, has become popular, and I have to admit, I've never had a good experience with sweets based on a specialty. However, I was somehow drawn to this unique package and thought I'd try it. Maybe I'm just not good with looks. No, I can't be the only one.


The box of Peanuts Monaka that arrived was much bigger and thicker than the image I saw in the photo, and it was as big as two thin tissue boxes. When I opened the box, I found a bag of peanut-shaped monarchs, and the whole thing was very heavy. When I opened the bag and took off the skin of the Monaka, I found a brown, translucent white bean jam with some red beans inside.

When I tried it, I thought, "Wow, this is delicious. The refined Ann and the Monarch crust combine perfectly to give it a unique Monarch flavor. The peanut flavor, which I couldn't feel at first, began to show its character later on. Yeah, it's a really tasty Monaka, not just some random souvenir Monaka. Yeah, that's good.

By the way, the "Pee-chan" on the clear bag is said to be holding a four-leaf clover on rare occasions, and this time there were two of them in the 12-piece package.
