Do you know this food, “Ikkokko” (difficult to pronounce) ?
Ikkokko is one of the Nagasaki’s traditional foods
and this is very interesting to eat
this size is as small as your palm and this is very hard
so you can play catch with your friends
but the smell is like cookie
lets cut this in half!
Look! Ikkokko is empty inside!!
there is only thick layer of starch syrup
If you dig into Ikkokko, you would be surprised
because many Japanese traditional sweets have some paste in them, but this don’t
I toasted one piece(the front)
the smell was evolved and my room was filled with this good smell
these tastes are good (needless to say)
toasty and sweet
Ikkokko is very simple food that we sometimes strongly want to eat
but starch syrup stuck on your teeth
I like toasted one
Price：¥432 / a pack of 5 @Nagasaki souvenir hall(in front of JR Nagasaki station)
