[Snow Brand Parlor Head Office in Sapporo] Sweetness of Strawberry Condensed Milk Parfait Stands out
Snow Brand Parlor
Snow Brand Parlor (雪印パーラー) is a long-established sweets shop based in Sapporo city, and has been established since 1956. Snow Brand Meg Milk, famous milk and major milk brand, that has handled milk since 1925 runs it. The head office is along Sapporo Station Front Station, and some branches open a business in the Sapporo, Otaru and New Chitose Airport. They serve about 30 types of sweets including cakes, ice creams and parfaits. In those sweets, a super huge parfait called "Dream Jumbo Parfait (ドリームジャンボパフェ)" is served. Its weight is over 8kg! The price is JPY 12,960! An advance reservation is required for this. Except sweets, they also serve meals. * The head office has been moved to other place near Sapporo Clock Tower (札幌市時計台) since April, 2017. An article before moving is as follows.
My visited place is the head office near Sapporo Station. A lot of sweets replicas are displayed at the entrance of the building. A souvenir shop is on the 1st floor, and a tea room is on the 2nd floor. The tea room is large, and all seats are table seats, so I guess that even family customers enjoy sweets.
Sapporo Clock Tower
Sapporo Clock Tower (札幌市時計台) is a historical building built in 1978 in Chuo ward, Sapporo city, and has been designated as a national important cultural property. It is well-known as a symbol of the Sapporo, and one of the most famous tourist attractions in the Sapporo. The clock tower is next to Sapporo City Hall (札幌市役所), Hokkaido Newspaper Head Office (北海道新聞本社) and Sapporo Chamber of Commerce and Industry (札幌商工会議所), and is also near Odori Park (大通公園) and Sapporo Sosei Square (さっぽろ創世スクエア). The appearance is lit up in the evening. Admission fee is JPY 200. A parking lot is not provided. Article is here
Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Article is here
Strawberry Condensed Milk Parfait
I visited the head office around 11:00 on a weekday. I was curious about the Dream Jumbo Parfait, but I did not think that I could eat up all by myself, so I ordered a Strawberry Condensed Milk Parfait (いちご練乳パフェ). The price was JPY 1,010. Fresh cream and sponge cakes were topped with the ice cream and strawberries, and condensed milk was poured from the top. The condensed milk of the Snow Brand was famous for sweet and tasty. But it was too sweet for me generally, but the sourness of the strawberry neutralized the sweetness. Thanks for the tasty parfait!
