Japan’s weird food: Karinto Manju

My new favourite obsession is this snack, availible at the utilitarian bakery near the train station in Chikugo.

Karinto is deep fried flour and sugar, and manju is a sweat with bean paste in the middle. Combine them, and you have this wonderful treat.

Crunchy on the outside, sweet on the inside, I was in such a hurry to take a second bite I didn’t even get a good picture. Sorry.
