In this article, we'll introduce some of our favorite Osaka souvenirs, focusing on sweets. (Information as of June 2018)

Hyogetsudo 【Osaka Puchi (Petit) Banana】

Hyogetsudo's "Osaka Petit Banana" was invented by Shinichi Makino, the owner & chef of Monsieur Makino, a popular Western-style pastry shop in the Kansai region.

The "Funny Lovers" is a product made by Yoshimoto Creative Agency, a subsidiary of Yoshimoto Kogyo, and is a western-style confectionery with the catchphrase "Osaka's new specialty". There are several seasonal varieties, but the standard "Mitarashi Flavor" is a crispy gaufrettes filled with mitarashi dango-flavored cream. 16 pieces, 1,080 yen including tax.

There was a lawsuit over the imitation of "Shiroi Koibito" (White Lovers) sold by Ishiya Co., Ltd. in Hokkaido, but now a settlement has been reached by changing the package design and limiting sales to the six prefectures in the Kansai region. You can purchase it at JR Shin-Osaka Station, Osaka Station, at kiosks, and convenience stores Heart-in.

Aoki Shofuan 【Tsukigesho】

Aoki Shofuan's "Tsukigesho" is a homemade sweet bean paste made by blending two kinds of green beans (Hokkaido's Otebo and Shirokane Toki) and cooked to a rich flavor with high-quality butter, milk, and condensed milk. The bean paste is wrapped in moist special skin and baked to a golden brown color.
