Kakigori

Kakigori is also known as shaved ice, and it is one of the most popular Japanese desserts especially during summer! You can find kakigori at various locations – from summer festival’s food stalls to classy cafes and restaurants, you can find various types, from simple to fun and unique kakigori! Kakigori that you get at summer festivals generally use fruit flavored syrups to make it tasty, but the one that classy cafes and restaurants serve sometime have more toppings such as fresh fruits, shiratama (mochi), and more! It is a perfect dessert for summer!

Tokoroten

Tokoroten, beloved by Japanese people for more than thousand years, is one of the cooling desserts, thin sliced jelly that is commonly eaten with vinegar in Eastern region, or brown sugar syrup in Western part of Japan. Tokoroten is like noodles but made of jelly. If you are looking for a refreshing summer desserts, this is what you should try!

Anmitsu

Anmitsu is a very popular Japanese dessert that usually contains fruits such as oranges, pineapples and cherry, cube of agar jelly, red bean, a scoop of ice cream, and sometimes shiratama (mochi), eaten with mitsu (sweet syrup).
This is a cooling and refreshing dessert, and there are many more unique Anmitsu offered in different cafes and restaurants! Aside from standard Anmitsu, some places offer acai Anmitsu, lemon tea Anmitsu, mango Anmitsu, and more, so it’s worth checking out these unique Anmitsu too!

Kuzukiri

Kuzukiri is another refreshing Japanese summer dessert that is made from Kuzuko (a starch powder made from Kuzu plant’s root). It’s like transparent noodles too! It looks similar to Tokoroten, but Tokoroten is made of an agar weed (or gelidium), so these two are completely different. Kuzukiri does not really have a taste, so people generally eat with sweet syrup, which goes really well with this cooling dessert.

Mizuyokan

Mizuyokan is softer than a standard yokan, which is made of the same ingredients, red bean, sugar but less agar and more water. Mizuyokan used to be a seasonal dessert for winter, and there are few regions that still only eat it in winter. Its sweetness is very elegant, and the texture is very smooth. You should definitely give it a try!

Mizu Manju

Some of you may have seen this cooling looking dessert – this is called Mizu Manju, perfectly cold and refreshing dessert. It is also called “Kuzu Manju” because the transparent part that covers red bean is made of kuzu powder (same ingredient as Kuzukiri!). Sometimes it is eaten with cold water too. Some places offer colorful Mizu Manju, and surprisingly it is not that hard to make them at home! Just looking at the photos already makes me feel refreshed.

Warabi Mochi

Warabi Mochi is a sweet Japanese mochi dessert made of Warabi, or bracken plant, covered or dipped in kinako powder, commonly eaten with brown sugar syrup. Warabi is really expensive now, so kuzu powder or potato starch are generally used as a substitute. It is a very cooling, and has a well-balanced sweetness that makes you unstoppable to eat! They also have matcha flavored Warabi Mochi, black colored Warabi Mochi and more! Find out more about Warabi Mochi by clicking the link below.

Gari gari kun

Disney’s New Halloween Desserts Will Get You Psyched For Oct. 31st

0

There must be something in the wind — and it’s making everyone want to skip the last weeks of summer and fly into fall. On the heels of Disney’s announcement that its Halloween parties are happening earlier than ever (Aug. 25th, in case you’re curious), the Magic Kingdom revealed some of the festive-but-not-quite-macabre treats it’ll be selling.

And this year, you better believe the treat everyone will be clamoring for is the Jack Skellington cake pop. It’s too spot-on not to Instagram — just look at that white chocolate face! — and features layers of vanilla panna cotta, chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream frosting, dark chocolate shavings, and white and dark chocolate crisp candy “pearls.” You can find it at Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square.

The second best treat, for those who are keeping score, will give the Grey Stuff a run for its money. Served at Gaston’s Tavern and Main Street Bakery, the Pumpkin Cheesecake Dome has a graham cracker base and is topped with an orange mirror glaze like the one on this epic Minnie cake.

Mickey Cheesecake

Disney

This year also features a nod to one of Disney’s classic rides, the Haunted Mansion, but to try this treat, you’re going to have to work for it. There are four different flavors, all topped with a different Haunted Mansion-inspired white chocolate “portrait,” and each one’s sold at a different place. Aloha Isle sells a chocolate ganache-filled chocolate tart that’s covered in Oreo panna cotta. In Tomorrowland, Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies sells a raspberry compote-stuffed chocolate tart topped with white chocolate mousse. (Psst … while you’re there, you can also score a scoop of Candy Corn Ice Cream.)

You’ll find the third design at Liberty Square Market — a chocolate tart loaded up with chocolate ganache and peanut butter icing — and the fourth at Storybook Treats, a chocolate tart filled with lemon curd, strawberry compote, and strawberry mousse.

Chocolate Crisped Rice Treat

Disney

If you’re more of a purist when it comes to Halloween sweets — give me graveyard cakes or give me (un)death! — various food kiosks throughout the park will sell chocolate-dipped crisped rice treats (speckled with Halloween sprinkles) and Vampire Mickey Brownies. You can also get the most classic of All Hallows Eve potluck treats, Worms And Dirt, at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe.

Even one of the park’s most popular breakfasts is getting the fall treatment: Pumpkin Mickey waffles will be sold at Sleepy Hollow.
