Iwashu Cream Puff That Flavor Expiration Date Is Only A Hour -Kouda Confectionery Store in Setana-
October 3rd, 2017
Kouda Confectionery Store (甲田菓子店) is a long-established Japanese confectionery store in Setana town located in the northwest part of Hakodate city, and has opened a business since 1900. It is famous for Iwashu Cream Puff (岩シュー) using Sanbonsugiiwa Rocks (三本杉岩), a symbol of Setana, as a motif. The appearance is like rocks, and the cream puff dough is crispy. A shop clerk puts fresh custard cream into it just after odering, and its flavor expiration date is only a hour, so it is known for very short flavor expiration date. Their Western confectionery is famous, but Japanese confectionery using the Sanbonsugiiwa Rocks as a motif are sold, too.
3 types of the Iwashu Cream Puff, White Iwashu Cream Puff (白岩シュー), Mocha Iwashu Cream Puff (モカ岩シュー) and Saku-saku-custar Pie (サクサクカスター) are sold for JPY 140 per one. Those are not sold every day, and are sold only in Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and National Holidays. Customers seem to come from all Hokkaido and outside, and seem to form a line on weekend. They come to buy the Iwashu Cream Puff, so that is great! Since I was there, I bought all 3 types. Then I went to the Sanbonsugiiwa Rocks for 5 minutes on foot.
First, I ate the White Iwashu Cream Puff. The diameter was around 5 cm, and the appearance looked like colummer joint of the Sanbonsugiiwa Rocks, and the texture was like crispy cookie. The fresh custard cream with vanilla beans was very rich taste, and was not too sweet. It was very tasty!
The appearance of the Mocha Iwashu Cream Puff was same as the White Iwashu Cream Puff. Those were sold separately, so I gussed that there was a difference. But the texture was same as the White Iwashu Cream Puff. The mocha custard cream was less sweet than the custard cream of the White Iwashu Cream Puff, and I felt that the mocha custard cream was not as rich as the custard cream, so I favorite the White Iwashu Cream Puff.
As for the Saku-saku-custar Pie, crispy pie crust had the rich custard cream inside, too. I think that it is same as the rich custard cream of the White Iwashu Cream Puff. The crispy texture went well with the custard cream. This was tasty, too!
