Today’s post is courtesy of my beautiful and brainy friend Vagabondine, who offered me this very cute packet of cookies when we went to see The World of Tim Burton exposition last week at Mori Tower.
This limited edition version from Fujiya is meant to taste like amaou strawberries, which are grown in Fukuoka in Kyushu. According to the packaging, the cookies have a deliciousness that adults will like.
Of course the cookies are pink and taste of strawberries, with the occasional chocolate chip showing up.
This time, for the first time ever, I tried warming them up in the microwave. Vagabondine promised they’d be yummy when warmed and mamma mia they were gorgeous! I don’t think I will ever eat them un-warmed again! They weren’t as mind blowing as fresh, just out of the oven homemade cookies, but my goodness they were a close second, especially when living in a country like Japan makes baking things like cakes and cookies such a hassle. The centres turned all gooey and yum, but I did burn my mouth because I’m gluttonous, so be careful!
That is the lesson of the day, people – always take 20 seconds out of your life and heat up your Country Ma’am!
