For a limited time, we will be selling “Black Panda Cream Puff” in collaboration with the long-established cream puff maker “Hirota Western Confectionery” at our store.
“Hirota Western Confectionery Co., Ltd.” is a long-established Western confectionery store founded in 1924, and its representative product is the long-selling “Original Cream Puff,” which is a flavorful and rich custard cream made with plenty of fresh eggs and milk. Aeon Retail collaborated with Hirota, which will celebrate its 100th anniversary next year, to plan and develop a “black and white panda-colored” cream puff inspired by the “Aeon Black Friday Sale” character “Black Panda.”
We use domestic ingredients such as eggs and milk, as well as flour, Hokkaido butter, and fresh cream. Furthermore, this product uses “honwaka sugar” made from sugar cane produced in Okinawa, which has a rich and gentle sweetness, and has the ultimate creamy taste. [Comment from “Western confectionery Hirota”]
-Thanks to you, 100th anniversary-
In 2024, Western confectionery company Hirota will celebrate its 100th anniversary. We will continue to propose sweets that deliver excitement and happiness, valuing the idea that has been passed down since our founding: “Bringing dreams, hopes, and happiness to as many people as possible through sweets.” This cream puff is made with Hirota’s unique custard blend cream that is particular about its appearance. It features a clear panda-like contrast between the black skin made from bamboo charcoal and the white custard cream that does not contain any dyes.
