The "Tsukigesho" was ranked 4th in the ranking of recommended souvenirs by Osaka people (conducted by Eki Marche Shin-Osaka via the Internet in 2017.06). What? I've been in the souvenir industry for a long time, but I don't know. It was developed in 2010 by a shop called Aoki Shofuan as a way of making Osaka souvenirs, and it became well known in Osaka after a commercial featuring Saburo Ohira was aired. In fact, there are two types of Tsukigesho: those made at the factory and those baked at the street shop, but since I can't go there, I'll take the factory's one.

Incidentally, the ranking was as follows: No. 1 "551 Horai", No. 2 "Takoyaki", No. 3 "Pork Man", No. 4 "Tsukigesho", No. 5 "Takosho", No. 6 "Koibito", No. 7 "Okoshi (millet, rock)", No. 8 "Uncle Rikuro's shop", No. 9 "Dojima Roll" and No. 10 "Midarashi Koimochi".

When you take it out of the bag, you see? I've seen it before. It's similar to Hakata-dori-mon in Fukuoka. I smelled it, oh, it smells like a cookie. When you cut it in half, there is a semi-transparent bean jam inside. If you try it, it's like Hakata-Torimon, or Mamadoru in Fukushima (I just ate it recently and it's very similar)... Yes, this milk-like flavor reminds me of it~.

To put it simply, both the outer dough and the bean jam inside are soft and moist Western-style manju. If anything, I think women and children will like it~. Maybe it tastes better when eaten chilled? I think. →In fact, when I did that, I think it became a little firmer, but more cheesecake-like in flavor and more adult in flavor.
