Enjoy the Flavours of Sendai with the Zunda Shake Kit Kat
29.November.2019 | FOOD
Sendai is famous for zunda mochi: a traditional dessert that fuses boiled mochi (rice cakes) and zunda (sweet edamame bean paste). The zunda mochi shop Zunda Saryo is collaborating with Nestlé to create a Kit Kat Mini with the regional flavour “Zunda Saryo Shake”, which will be released on December 1 at a number of shops including souvenir shops around Sendai Station and Sendai Airport, and selected KASHO SANZEN shops*
*(Omachi Hirose-dōri, Koji Matsushima and Monzen Matsushima)
Zunda Saryo spreads the delicious flavour of zunda across Japan through their variety of zunda-flavoured desserts and drinks. The Zunda Shake is an original drink made by fusing carefully selected milk with vanilla and then blending it with zunda to create an original sweet shake to represent Sendai. Kit Kat’s crispy wafers add texture to the layers of smooth chocolate, producing a divine flavour. Japan is home to more than 40 different Kit Kat flavours which are popular within Japan and overseas. 20 of those are from Japan’s regional flavour series, which is a collaboration with a regional specialty.
Foreigners and even Japanese visitors from other parts of the country will have never seen this new flavour before. The new Kit Kat Mini Zunda Shake flavour is sure to be the best way to experience the flavours of the region.
The cream filling is kneaded with edamame powder and sandwiched between crispy wafers. The Kit Kat is coated in Zunda shake-flavoured chocolate, creating the perfect Kit Kat flavour.
Whether you’re looking for a small snack or a souvenir, the Zunda Shake Kit Kat is perfect for you.

Indulge in Omotesando This Christmas With Q-Pot CAFE.’s Afternoon Tea Set
Christmas is almost here, and at Q-pot CAFE. in Omotesando, the festivities have already begun as they begin serving a selection of special Christmas-exclusive menu items. These will be available until December 25.
Q-pot. is known for its accessory brand, which features jewellery made to look like sweets and desserts. It is also known for the Q-pot CAFE. which flips that concept, instead making sweets and desserts that look just like real accessories.
I visited Q-pot CAFE. to treat myself to their exciting Christmas afternoon tea.
Q-pot. Omotesando is a 7-minute walk from Omotesando Station’s A2 exit. You’ll spot the entrance by its sparkly illuminations as pictured above.
The cafe is split into seven concept rooms, such as Melt, Chocolate, BisQuit, SAKURA, and so onーso you can pick which sounds good to you and sit there. It also gives a reason to go back more than once!
The Story of Sweet Kingdom Afternoon Tea Set ¥2,400 (Tax Included/Drink Included)
The afternoon tea set: an indulgence any cafe-lover craves for at least once. And since Christmastime is coming, you want to enjoy a little treat too, right? Well, this two-tiered set comes with desserts, sweets, and some light food too.
The top plate includes gingerbread man pops, cupcakes, vanilla panna cotta, and macarons.
The gingerbread man pops are filled with caramel ganache, while the red velvet cupcakes topped with pistachio cream and made to look like a Christmas tree. The panna cotta is also sprinkled with dragees to look like stardust.
The macarons are strawberry and melon flavoured. The melon one has a particularly rich flavour and contains red melon pieces. This macaron is so popular that there are people who go to Q-pot CAFE. just to sink their teeth into one of them.
The bottom plate contains some hearty and crunchy croissants filled with roast beef, mini tomatoes, and broccoli. It also comes with a side of rich cheese soup with onions and potatoes inside. It’s a great palate cleanser after the desserts.
Pistachio Cream Tea Latte ¥750 (Tax Included) *Also sold separately
The drink that’s served with the afternoon tea set is a Christmas-only pistachio cream tea latte. It’s a latte made with one of the cafe’s original flavoured tea brews called “Flower Garden.” The tea ensures the drink isn’t overly-sweet and leaves it with a mild flavour. It also comes with a holly-shaped cookie. This drink is also available to order separately from the drinks menu.
The set comes with a special fairy tale-like Christmas lunch mat.
CHRISTMAS CAKE ~The Story of Sweet Kingdom~ ¥3,800 (Tax Included)
The cafe is also selling a cake that looks like something out of a children’s picture book. It’s topped with a coconut meringue snowman, gingerbread man, and strawberry Santa. This would make a great addition to a home party.
Saku Saku Meringue ¥600 (Tax Included)
Take away some crunchy snow-white meringues too, so addictive you won’t be able to stop after just one!
The cafe is also selling a Christmas collection of their dessert-like accessories too.
Christmas Tree Cupcake: Necklace ¥10,000/Bag Charm ¥8,000 (Before Tax)
The Christmas tree cupcake features a chocolate cookie-like base topped with a realistic pistachio cream adorned with pearls.
Strawberry Santa Claus: Necklace ¥10,000/Bag Charm ¥8,000 (Before Tax)
Check out these adorable bright-red strawberry Santas too!

Japanese Souvenir Diary: Tokyo Strawberry Whipped Langue-de-chat
You’re going on holiday to another country, but there’s someone special back at home that can’t go with you. What’s the best way to make them feel like they haven’t been left out completely? Souvenirs, of course! Picking out the perfect souvenir for the right person or people, whether friends or family, is a lot of fun as you consider what each person might like and appreciate.
We’ve condensed that thrill of souvenir searching into an article series. We will showcase products that the MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON editorial team have actually tried and recommend as souvenirs.
Tokyo Ichigo Whipped Langue-de-chat (Includes 6) – ¥650 (Tax Included)
Today, we will take a look at Tokyo Strawberry Whipped Langue-de-chat. This whipped chocolate cat tongue biscuit is nothing short of delicious. It’s a fact.
And the cute packaging makes it even better, both the box and individual packs when you open it up.
And since they are individually packaged, you can share them amongst multiple people.
Whipped chocolate is sandwiched between the cat tongue biscuits.
Time to try one.
The biscuit itself has a buttery, exquisite flavour. Though they’re stuffed with whipped chocolate, the chocolate itself is light on the belly. You get those sweet and sour notes from the strawberry too.
The combination of the lightly baked and delicate biscuits with the soft texture and subtle taste of the whipped chocolate is to die for. Your taste buds are tantalised by a flurry of strawberry.
I showed the 6 pack of biscuits, but they also sell a 12 pack (¥1,080) and 18 pack (¥1,620) too, so cater it to how many you need to share out (or enjoy to yourself!) They have a best before date of 30 days too, so don’t have to worry if there’s still some time left before you return home.
If you love strawberries, you won’t be able to rest the Tokyo Strawberry Whipped Langue-de-chat. Be sure to check them out if you’re looking for a Japanese souvenir from Tokyo.
