This was one of the bits I was most looking forward to that I had received from OyatsuCafe, so I've been waiting to eat it. Ya see, I'm a bit of a hoarder of snacks, Exhibit A. Today was particularly gray and horrible, the first in what is sure to be a long series of them this fall, so I needed some cheering up.
The packaging shows a very accurate illustration of the biscuit, and it is extremely shiny. I can't imagine many people walking by this snack and not at least taking a second glance. It's made by Meito, a company in Japan that I hadn't heard of before that has a particularly horrible website. Looks like the cheesecake flavor is no longer available in Japan, but strawberry and chocolate are still going strong.
I was surprised at how strong the smell of cheesecake was - it smelled like cheesecake the way lots of Japanese cheesecake and 'cheese' products do: Sweet lemon & cream.
cheaper wafer chocolates I've had.
It tasted like lemon cheesecake, and was very easy going down. The combination of a wafer 'crust' and inner 'mousse' made me feel like I was eating an actual dessert, not just a snack. Really a great combination, I'd happily eat these more often. I'd like to try a green tea version, if it ever existed, or the chocolate variety.
