Have you heard a word “anko”? “anko” is sweet bean paste. When Japanese say “anko” it usually means a paste made from adzuki beans (small red beans).

We usually call a bread with anko “anpan”.
This item is a kind of “anpan”. I think “anpan” is one of Japanese traditional or familiar food. Lots of Japanese love “anpan”.

There is a famous anime called “anpanman” staring a hero who has “anpan” face. When “anpanman” finds someone hungry he gives piece of his face saying “eat my face, it’s delicious!”. This anime is really popular among 0-5 years old children!

Good but not beyond my expectation.
I expected stronger taste of mascarpone cheese. “Anpan” could be better!
Average. Around 150 yen.
250 kcal per package. Not that high.
Easy to get?
I got this at LAWSON, one of the biggest convenience stores in Japan. But I think this is not a regularly sold item.
Get again?
Maybe not. Since there are lots of different kinds of “anpan” in Japan so I want to try different one and explore better one.

The materials may be changed in the future so 
please check by yourself when you try it.
