A big shout out to my friend for bringing this all the way back from Tokyo because I told her I’ve not tried this before! If you are planning to bring some back from Japan, note that there’s expiry dates for these babies yup, they last probably around 2 weeks.
Once you open the package there is this glorious banana scent and that comes from the banana custard filling. The smell is actually a lot stronger compared to the taste, the banana flavour is milder in the custard itself, which has the consistency like smooth rich kaya. Overall it was enjoyable, the sweetness level was right and the sponge casing is moist and fluffy. Somehow I imagine this to be very popular with young kids.
Finally tried Tokyo Banana, thank you Sally!
(Just checked out their website and they got some very cute variations! Love the Japanese.)
