I've been wanting to try Mori no Ohagi for some time now but their hours were kind of inconvenient for me.
So, I was happy to find them being sold at Hankyu Department store in Umeda.
Ohagi is rice that is covered with sweet bean paste. If you are interested in more details, I've written about this before here.
Anyway, these ohagi were tiny. 6 for 900-something yen...a bit pricey.
But, they had unique flavors.
The top row was walnut, edamame (soy bean), kinako (soy bean powder). Bottom row was hoji-cha (roasted green tea), roasted corn and sweet bean paste.
Roasted corn was interesting, but totally matched because the corn is naturally sweet.
I wouldn't mind trying their other flavors. And I notice their hours have been changed to more convenient times...I'll be back.
