Can you believe this combo? Yoghurt jelly with Amanatsu orange sauce and blood orange jelly topped with Amanatsu oranges from Kumamoto prefecture. What a treat!
Well, it sounded good, but I didn’t know what Verrine means. As a sweets geek I decided to research this word. Verrine is a French word for sweets or cuisine in a glass container. In this case it’s sold at the convenience store so it comes in a clear plastic container. Beautiful!
The oranges tasted sour and sweet, they were so fresh! Careful not to swallow the seeds though!
The blood orange jelly had such a nice texture with the perfect balance of sourness and sweetness.
The yoghurt jelly on the bottom had a mild kind of sourness, it was so creamy.
I’ve never had the combination of orange jelly and yoghurt jelly, I loved it!
It was taste of early summer, the quality surpassed my expectations for convenience store sweets!
