Etude Western Confectionery Store

Etude Western Confectionery Store (エチュード洋菓子店) is a popular western confectionery store based in Asahikawa city, and Etude Western Confectionery Store corp. has run it since 1984, and Mr. Hiroyuki Matsunae (松苗 博行) is a company president. The head office is in Asahi-machi, and branches open a business in Toko and Suehiro. Baked sweets such as Asahikawa Souffle (旭川スフレ) and Tenshi-no-Hohoemi Cheese Tart (天使のほほえみ) are known, but no matter what, Ohirune Pudding (ひよこのお昼ねプリン * Baby Chick's Lunchtime Nap Pudding) is very famous. That got the first place in "Pudding Palace (プリンの殿堂) 2006". In addition, the Ohirune Pudding appeared in Beautiful Bones: Sakurako's Investigation (櫻子さんの足下には死体が埋まっている), a famous anime, and is reported in the overseas website.

My visited place is the head office near Hokkaido University of Education Asahikawa Campus (北海道教育大学 旭川校). The store with a typical atmosphere such as a western local confectionery store is not large. Because the Ohirune Pudding is introduced by Goro Hidaka Show (日高晤郎ショー) broadcasted for nearly 30 years in Hokkaido, a commemorative shield is displayed at the store. That is great, and the Ohirune Pudding got the best in Japan after all. A place for custmers to enjoy foods and drinks freely is not provided at the store.

ASAHIKAWA

Asahikawa (旭川) that about 340,000 people live is the 2nd largest commercial city in Hokkaido, and has flourished as the center of the North Hokkaido area. Woodworks have been prosperous since the old days, and furniture is famous. Because water is clear, a liquor such as sake of Otokoyama (男山) and Godo Shusei (合同酒精) are famous, too. Popular tourist attractions such as Asahiyama Zoo (旭山動物園) and Biei (美瑛) are around the Asahikawa, so a lot of tourists use tourist bases in the North Hokkaido. As for a climate, the Asahikawa is located in Kamikawa Basin, the largest basin in the Hokkaido, so it is hot that temperature rises to 30 degrees C in a summer, and it is cold that temperature falls to -25 degrees C in a winter, and it snow very hard, too. So a winter festival using the snow is famous. Article is here

Ohirune Pudding

I visited here around 15:00 on a weekday. My feature sweetd is the Ohirune Pudding. Raw materials are eggs produced in Higashi-asahikawa and milk produced in Okhotsk area, so customers can enjoy the taste of the Hokkaido. I purchased it immediately. The price was JPY 310. Because there was not a place for customers to enjoy foods at the store, I decided to return to my car, and to eat it.

I unwrapped a packing with an illustration of a pretty chick, and put a spoon into pudding, and had a bite. It was very smooth, and tasted thick egg. It was tasty! The sweetness increased when I mixed the pudding with caramel sauce, and ate it. Thanks for the tasty pudding!
