【Coconut pudding with tropical fruits】
Price:295 yen (Tax incl.)
Sale date:August 2, 2016
Lawsons released a sweet that makes you feel like you are in a tropical paradise.
The bottom is a layer of coconut pudding and the top is tropical fruit.
Even the sticker theme looks so tropical and cute.
The toppings were Pineapples, Mangoes, Dragon fruit and Kiwi. It looked so summery, I was instantly happy when I opened it.
The fruit that appears to have many black sesame seeds inside is called dragon fruit. In Japan we can’t buy this fruit in many shops, so I was excited.
Between coconut pudding and fruit there was a citrus crushed jelly! It was so refreshing.
The main cast of this sweet is the coconut pudding. This pudding had a really nice texture, rich in coconut flavour. It had a nice aroma to it and Coconut puree and coconut liqueur were used in it. I ate it all up in no time. I enjoyed the distinctive taste and texture of the pudding, jelly and fruit. Do you want to eat summer? This is as close as it gets!
