How’s it going, foodies? We hope you’ve been eating well this month because there’s an exclusive new dessert to try this May! Available for a limited time only is the famous Kikufuku, a premium Japanese daifuku mochi snack that’s debuting for the first time at Isetan KLCC’s CF Foodmarket!
Kikufuku Is Now Available In Malaysia For A Limited Time Only
From 15th May onwards, mochi lovers can discover Kikufuku by Igeta Seicha at Isetan KLCC. It’s a creamy daifuku mochi snack that’s loved all over Japan since 1920. Kikufuku is a famous Sendai specialty created by long-standing tea producer Igeta Seicha from Sendai City, Miyagi Prefecture. Apart from their excellent teas, Kikufuku is one of their most popular tea-based confections made with Miyagi Prefecture’s signature glutinous rice!
As described, Kikufuku is a cream daifuku mochi – a much-loved sweet in Japan. A daifuku is a type of Japanese confection with a sweet filling, typically made of Anko (sweet red bean paste) and cream. With its balanced flavours and pleasant textures, it’s no surprise that this is one of the most iconic Japanese desserts in the world.
There are four Kikufuku with distinctive fillings to enjoy in a box:
1. Fresh cream: Hokkaido cream wrapped in a thin-skinned rice cake layer, perfectly soft and chewy.
2. Matcha cream: The signature and most popular flavour, using top-quality matcha from Uji, Kyoto. It contains the classic red bean paste too, of course!
3. Zunda cream: A combination of seasonal edamame mashed into a sweet bean paste with the richness of the cream makes this one a unique option.
4. Hojicha cream: This is the one for Hojicha fans- its strong taste and aroma comes from Hojicha whipped cream using luxurious roasted green tea from Kyoto.
Kikufuku arrives frozen and lasts for about a month in the freezer. Once thawed, remember to consume within 2 days! Note that this dessert may contain alcohol content.
