Minamoto Kitchoan

Cantaloupe jelly - 2

J's comment > not bad; very smooth and delicate - this really falls apart at the slightest touch, but oh so tasty! cantaloupe flavor evident but not overpowering; a whole new definition to 'water-jelly'

Baumkuchen - 2

J's comment > not bad; loved the thin crust of frosting that lifted an otherwise delicate pound cake to another level; slightly moist, but could do w some whip. or better yet butter.... :D

Hanamurashi: Double-layered steamed sponge cake w cherry blossom image on top - 2

J's comment > not bad; moist, subtle sweet white bean flavor; not too sweet

Pear jelly - 2

J's comment > not bad; almost as delicate as the cantaloupe jelly above; excellent pear flavor that's strong, yet not overwhelming

Sasaika: Loquat 'biwa' jelly - 2

Momoaya: White peach wrapped in lightly sweetened jelly - 2

J's comment > not bad; very subtle flavors; soft jelly (but nowhere near as soft as the cantaloupe jelly above) w actual pieces of the advertised fruit in the center

Extra Note
These are actually called 'wagashi' and are traditional Japanese sweets, usually served in the Japanese tea ceremony. We got these to take back to Vancouver.
