SHIROI-KOIBITO has been popular for over 30 years. Yes! It’s a typical souvenir in Japan. You can buy it not only in Hokkaido but also in Tokyo because almost all Japanese love it. It’s a cookie with white chocolate sandwiched between “langue de chat (French baked cookie)” biscuits. This chocolate is an original recipe made just for it. Everybody comes under the white chocolate.
Many people have loved JYAGA-POKKURU for long since it was released. It became popular only with word of mouth without any advertising. It ran out of stock at the gift shop of Chitose airport terminal because of its popularity. It’s made from 100% Hokkaido-grown potatoes which have great flavor and taste. I’m addicted to its crispy texture and roasted salty taste.
