  • New Specialty Shop in Shinjuku Selling Edible Jewels for a Limited Time

    04.October.2021 | FOOD

    Mahou no Kohakutou, a shop specializing in sweets that look exactly like sparkling jewels, will be open for a limited time from October 1 to October 10, 2021, inside the Shinjuku Marui Main Building. These unique treats are actual amber candy, but it’s hard to want to eat something that looks so expensive. 

     

     

    Each piece is cut by hand

    Pieces from the Magical Vial Series

    Finished amber candy

    Amber candy before the drying process

     

     

    Amber sugar is often appropriately called rock candy due to its mineral-like appearance. Despite their hard appearance, these treats have a much more complex texture than you’d think, crunchy on the outside but chewy on the inside. It takes about one week to crystallize each piece to get the right texture, and chefs must constantly keep an eye on the process by turning the sweets when needed and adjusting the humidity. 

     

    Rather than using a machine or mold, each of these jewels is formed by hand, one by one. This means each one is completely different!

     

    All coloring is accomplished with natural food-derived dye, and the sweets contain no synthetic coloring or flavoring. All it takes is a few simple ingredients to create something scrumptious!
