Croissant Crema Catalana Rainbow
I visited the Jam Auntie's Sweets Studio Rita around 13:00 on a weekday. Since I was already there, I wanted to eat sweets using noted jam, so I asked a shop clerk about shop's recommendation, and she replied to me "That is Croissant Crema Catalana Rainbow (クロワッサンカタラーナ レインボー)". It was limited edition, so I felt that it was special, and ordered it. The price was JPY 550.
The Croissant Crema Catalana Rainbow was a cold crema catalana topped with 5 types of different color jam sandwiched between hot flaky croissant, and the colorful jam depicted a rainbow.
I went to the resting room on the 2nd floor, and decided to eat it immediately. The sweets with hotness and coldness have a different mouthfeel, flaky and chewy, and it was very interesting. Egg taste of the crema catalana was very rich, and a conbination of it and sweet jam was good. I was satisfied. Thanks for the tasty sweets!
