Yogashi-Ho West Dry Cake


Yogashi-Ho West" is well known in the Kanto area because it used to run TV commercials in the Kanto area. However, the appearance of the "assortment of sweets" is surprisingly familiar to people all over the country. It's a "dry cake" sold only in the Tokyo area, but it's a candy that often travels all over the country as a Tokyo souvenir. As a side note, there is a coffee shop in the Tokyo area.


The nine different dry cakes that came out of the box (this time) were different from the impression I got from the images, each one was large and luxurious. First, I took the Victoria with the red jam in the center, which stood out to me, and found that it was not a flat cookie but a soft candy with a three-dimensional flower shape and a molded back side. When I tried it, I thought, oh, there's more to this than just cake and cookies.

The galette topped with macadamia nuts, which I ate next, was also three-dimensional, crumbling and soft (though not in taste) like a macaroon. No, there's also a cookie-type version. And to finish off the day, we had a leaf pie. One side of the leaf is covered with sugar cubes, and when you eat it, it is refreshingly sweet and tastes like candy, so you don't feel disgusted at all. Hmmm, they're all delicious.

Yes, it's pretty good. This is not only a great souvenir, it's also a great way to send a thoughtful gift. Give it to me! Give it to me! Tasty food has a short shelf life, but this one is surprisingly good for preservation.
