I came across this very famous animal manju from Japanese confectioner Namikoshiken while surfing on rakuten. They are little palm sized buns filled with various flavours like azuki beans, chocolate or white bean paste. Namikoshiken is a 87 years old company based in Nagoya.
Go check out more on their website http://www.namikoshiken.co.jp or
Too cute to resist! Now I just need to figure out how I can get my hands on them. Anyone going to Japan soon? 😋
