White Runner Bean Mousse

Since I heard that White Runner Bean Mousse (白花豆ムース), one of the sweets using the white runner bean, was famous, I visited here to purchase it around 10:00 on a weekday. The price was JPY 290. There was not a place for customers to enjoy foods and drinks at the store, so I went to Onsen Yume square (温泉ゆめ広場) near here, and sat on a bench, and decided to eat the white runner bean mousse. But the white runner bean mousse was freezed, so I left it at my car, and it was defrosted naturally for a hour.

It had the light taste and fluffy texture when I ate it after thawing the mousse. It was tasty! It was not too sweet, and I thought that the slightly bean taste was fascinating. The sweets had 2 layers, white runner bean mousse layer and sponge cake layer on the bottom. I hope it to become new local speciality of Onneyu Onsen (温根湯温泉). Thanks for the tasty mousse!
