I’ve found a Samurai pudding at a supermarket.
The funny glass jar in which was printed a face of Samurai and the Chinese character caught my eyes.

The Samurai pudding is made in Hokkaido ( it is the largest and northernmost of Japan’s 47 prefectures.).
It is only used highly-selected ingredients from Hokkaido, and also made not over-sweetened puddings to taste adults.

The custard is very rich and tastes good, and the caramel is also very good has a slightly bitter taste.

Mister Donut started latest donuts named Brooklyn D&D, it was inspired from NY style donuts, so they named after the city of NY.
But these donuts are not mixture of croissant and donut, but danish pastry and donut.

They call it “hybrid sweets”. It was good and I’ll try other flavors soon.

This is a holiday cake ‘Bonheur de Noel’ from HENRI CHARPENTIER.
Having cakes on Christmas Eve or on Christmas is a kind of a traditional Japanese holiday feast.
You can find fancy cakes at department stores and convenience stores during the Christmas season in Japan.
