This time of the year, many shops release pumpkin flavored sweets!
Lawson just released a pumpkin pudding. But it’s not your average pumpkin pudding, Lawson selected Ajihei Kabocha as it’s main ingredient. Ajihei Kabocha is famous for its nutty flavor and high sugar content compared to other kinds of squash. It is a good choice for making a dessert!

The pudding is about 7.5cm in diameter and 3.5cm in hight.
When I opened the lid, I saw a cute Jack-o’-lantern on top drawn in cacao powder!

It was so yummy!
It was firm, but creamy! When I tasted it carefully, I could feel the fibres of the pumpkin!
On the bottom was a thick caramel. It wasn't bitter at all and it went very well with the pumpkin.

The natural taste of pumpkin was so flavorful.
I would feed this to kids who don’t like eating vegetables ♪
