This is my first time trying this local confection.
There’s an explanation “extremely melty texture” so I decided to try some!
The product name “一五九二” means “1592”.
“一五九二” sounds like “higokuni”.
And “higokuni” means “肥後国” that is an old name of a region called Kumamoto where is located in southern part of Japan.
This bun is made from a brand milk called “ASO MILK”.
”Aso” is a part of Kumamoto.
I didn’t try but the manufacture suggests that it is also good to freeze and eat like ice cream.
I liked the melty texture very much!
It was just I expected!!
Around 600 yen per bag. (3 buns in a bag.)

I got this at AEON, one of the biggest supermarkets in Japan.
They held a Kyushu district fair for a few days so I happened to get them.
This was my first time to see them.
