Sweet and sour donut-shaped "pine candy". I've loved it since I was a kid, and I think it tastes better than real pineapple.
The Baumkuchen "Pine Baum", which is a collaboration between the pine candy and the confectionery shop Matsugetsudo Honpo in Osaka, has been on sale at souvenir shops in various parts of the Kansai region since March. For the author (Moon Face), who has a round face and no eyes on round things, this collaboration has only the strongest premonition. I'm a citizen of Tokyo, but I really want to eat it ...!
When I was screaming, I heard that some of the familiar Don Quijote (Don Quijote) stores in Tokyo handle it.
I went to the grocery store on the 2nd floor of the Don Quijote Akihabara store. There was a crowded corner, so when I thought, "Is it already very popular !?", it was a glow stick. As expected, Akiba.
When I look for it again with relief, it goes down ...
The price is 800 yen (excluding tax) per piece, which is considerably higher than the passion price Baum in the lower row. For some reason, there is only one in the lower row, maybe because someone gave up. However, the author who believes that it is worth it buys without hesitation!
When you take it out of the bag, it has a bright yellow color like a bag and a refreshing pine scent. It is quite big with a diameter of about 12 cm and a thickness of 3 cm, and is heavy.
The long-awaited pine baum is more satisfied with pine candy than expected. Even so, I wonder if there is a distribution barrier in Don Quijote ... It is around this time that Japan feels narrow thanks to Don Quijote. It seems that the handling at other stores depends on the store, but it was not in my neighborhood, so if you want it surely, go to Akihabara right now!
