[Lemon, Muscat, Kyoho Grape, Plum (each box contains 8pcs) / Store: cororo]
Since its opening in April 2017, the incredibly popular shop, cororo has specialized in “new sensation gummis.” Their gummis are surprisingly juicy, and it’s almost like eating a real fruit! They even take measures to reproduce the feeling of each fruit in their gummis; for example, there are small seed-like droplets in the muscat and kyoho grape gummis.
[Shimizu White Peach Jelly / Store: Okashidokoro Seifuan]
Seifuan is a wagashi (Japanese confectionery) shop that uses high-quality ingredients from Okayama Prefecture. Their Shimizu White Peach Jelly is a luxurious treat with an entire half of a Shimizu Hakuto white peach inside. The jelly that surrounds the halved peach is made with pure stream water from the Shimanto River and plenty of pureed Shimizu white peach. As the jelly can be preserved for almost half a year, they are also extremely popular to give as gifts.
[Ice Cream / Store: ECHIRE Marche au Beurre]
ECHIRE Marche au Beurre is a specialty store that focuses on French “Echire” butter. Typical ice cream is usually made with milk or cream, but by replacing it with Echire butter, the ice cream gains a deep, luxurious flavor. As Echire butter makes up about 20% of this treat, the buttery flavor spreads through your mouth, making this the ultimate butter ice cream.
Next, we will introduce some interesting products from the cosmetics floor, which is the largest scale in the Kansai region.
[Synchro Skin White Cushion Compact / Store: SHISEIDO]
