In the "Attractive Japanese Souvenirs Contest 2007," the Taiwanese judges selected the "Shingen-Momo" as the winner of the regional award. It's also made by Kikyoya, which is famous for its shingen-mochi (rice cakes). I wondered what kind of things foreigners would be interested in, so I got interested and went to eat. Well, Chinese people like peaches.

The box looks like something that mimics the box used for raw peaches. But it's a cute little box that's pretty small because it's matched to the sweets. When I opened the box, the sweets inside were wrapped in plastic and stored with desiccant, but they were lined up like real peaches.

That stunning peach-colored treat smelled of peaches, as expected, and when you try it, it tastes just like a peach, as you would expect. It is a thin cookie dough with yellow bean jam in it, and inside the bean jam, there are clear jelly-like things like peaches or peach nuts in some places. Peach-scented sweets are rare and very good, aren't they?

When I ate the second one, the peach aroma disappeared somehow because I got used to it. Hmmm, I guess I should have one for each person (or one for each day).

Come to think of it, we've had peach manju (Chinese manju) before, haven't we?
