Sanpira Pudding, Fleurs Saison, Nyoro Soft Cookie
Because I heard from my older sister that Nayoro Soft Cookie (名寄そふとクッキー) was tasty, I visited here around 11:00 on a weekday. When I looked around the store, I found Fleurs Saison (フルールセゾン) like Kibana Cookie made by Tsuboya and famous Sanpira Pudding (サンピラープリン) known as 2 famous puddings in the Nayoro, so I decided to buy those. As for the prices, the Nayoro Soft Cookie was JPY 140, and the Sunpira Pudding was JPY 206, and the Fleurs Saison was JPY 124. I got a permission from a shop clerk, and I ate those at the store.
The Nayoro Soft Cookies had a ganache flavor and a white chocolate flavor, and both cookies were very moist. Those reminded me of the moist state of Choshi Dentetsu Wet Rice Cracker (銚子電鉄ぬれ煎餅) in Chiba Prefecture. The Nayoro Soft Cookies were sweet, and were soft cookies.
The Sanpira Pudding was a pudding made from fresh milk and egg produced in Hokkaido, and was not so sweet, and had the smooth texture. The last was the Fleurs Saison. The hardness of the cookie with almonds was in contrast to the Nayoro Soft Cookie, and had the crisply texture. It was not so sweet, too. Thanks for the tasty sweets!
