Right now Lawson has a “seriously delicious project” campaign that is releasing lots of products.
For their dessert line-up, ("Uchi Café SWEETS" series), they released 4 different kinds of desserts using well-known local ingredients in Japan.
This is the newest dessert for Lawson’s famous premium roll cake series.
Aomori is where good apple comes from in Japan. This roll cake has Fuji apples from Aomori and a bitter sweet caramel sauce as a filling. The red apple colour package is really fitting.
A generous amount of diced apple!
Can you see the small balls around the cream? These puffs are called blonde chocolate puffs. They are a new type of chocolate that tastes like caramel and biscuits combined. I loved their crispiness!
The sponge was light and it had a caramel-like taste. The cream had a caramel taste and was a little bitter like the bottom of a custard pudding. The Fuji apple has the perfect balance between sweet and sour. The apple is crunchy and juicy at the same time. I loved them together, they went together like bread and butter!
It was creamy and not overly sweet. It was sweet and sour but at the same time bitter sweet. I would call this is a sweet for grown ups.
