The “Magic Pot Pudding,” which is often introduced in the media, is a novel looking sweet that, as the name suggests, is a pudding in a “pot. When you open the wrapping paper, what catches your eye is the fluffy cream.
The three layers give a harmonious sensation of melting in the mouth, and the cream accents the gentle texture of the tongue. The cream accents the gentle texture of the tongue. On top of being delicious, the sensation of it softly melting in your mouth is truly magical. Personally, I love it because it’s like an item from an RPG game!
Of course, it is not only cute, but also has many achievements, such as winning first place in the nationwide ordered pudding ranking and the Hyogo Prize of the Japan Gift Award. That’s the power of selling out 25,000 puddings a day! The only physical stores are in Osaka and Kobe, but you can buy it from anywhere in Japan through their online store, so if you haven’t tried it yet, order some for yourself!
