GINZA WEST -The best almond cookie SABLEST-

The best Japanese almond cookie

One of the popular gifts is this, almond cookie SABLEST.
When Japanese people visit somebody’s home, usually bring some gift as a sign of thank you for inviting me/us.
This is a bit fancy, so kind of nice gift 😉

Produced by a really famous brand:
They started the business in 1947.
At first, they were a restaurant. When their business was in danger, since then they started making cookies, it was in 1962.
Let’s take a look at their masterpieces!

Crispy and gently sweetness… so yummy 🙂


But my favorite product is

Almond cookie SABLEST

The best Japanese almond cookie I’ve ever had.
This is great!
When you bite it, it reminds you of the Chessman.
Buttery, sugary, and a bit salty…
Feel so rich 😉 
Good with black tea, coffee, and of course milk as well.
This is not super sweet.
But decent, gentle, graceful sweet cookies.

When I brought this to my husband’s family and his work, mother-in-law, great aunt in law, and coworkers loved it!!
FYI: They are Americans.

These have about 5 weeks until expiration day.
Good to bring it back to your country as well.
If you have Japanese friends and give it to them,
they will be so happy I’m sure.
