Morinaga traditional caramels - Azuki (red bean)

Posted by Linda on 09. 2011 2 comments 0 trackback
These traditional caramels from Morinaga have a VERY long history, they are one of the most recognized and oldest Japanese confectioneries ever produced, its history dates back to 1897 when these traditional caramels were first produced in Japan during the Meiji Restoration! That makes these Morinaga traditional caramels 114 years old! With the Milk caramel being its debut flavor, it wasn't long before these traditional caramels found its way in every shopping basket across Japan. For many generations, Morinaga's famous traditional caramels have been a very popular family treat, in recent years, you'll find an array of different caramel flavors.

After my delightful first experience with the Milk caramel flavor, I was eager to dig into a new flavor, so for my second try of these famous caramels, I picked the azuki (red bean) caramel with much excitement.



a enthusiastic foodie from Australia!

I love food, especially desserts & sweets, junk food and Japanese cuisine! But I'm a foodie who loves all kinds of good food in general ^_^
I like to review & critique about various food, sweets, snacks & drinks I have tasted/tried based on my OWN personal opinion & preferences. So you may not agree with some of my opinions & ratings.

Please take note that I am not a serious food "critic", reviewing & critiquing foods is merely a hobby I like to do in my free time ^_^

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
