Big Cookies -Amatou Head Office in Otaru-
July 8th, 2014
Amatou Head Office (あまとう本店) is a long-established confectionery store in Otaru city and was founded in 1929. It is the store that everyone know in Otaru. There is a coffee shop at a building, too, and sweets such as Cream Zenzai (クリームぜんざい * Zenzai with ice cream) is popular.
When I read Tweets, Amatou seems to be popular.
Because I heard from my older sister that cookies were tasty, I purchased 4 marron colons (マロンコロン) this time. There were 3 sables (almond flavor, walnut flavor and cheese flavor) and 1 jam sand (almond flavor). After I was handed these, I sat on a bench along Otaru Miyako-dori Shopping Mall and decided to eat those.
A marron colon, baked confectionery, has been selling in the Amatou since many years ago. 3 pieces of circular cookies are stacked, and chocolate is coated around the cookies. Sable type (almond flavor, cheese flavor, cacao flavor, walnut flavor), strawberry type and jam sand type revived flavor in those days (almond flavor, cacao flavor) are selling.
The sable type had a crispy texture, and a sweetness was just right, too. The jam sand type was spread over Apricot jam between cookies and it had a moist texture. This was sweeter than sable type. Because these were big cookies, it was really filling.
