We recently had our Christmas vacation in the motherland and we had to fly there with a layover at Haneda International Airport.
We saw these fun sweets on our first flight but decided to buy them on our return trip instead. They are sold in many of the souvenir kiosks in the airport.
The baby likes it so much, I often would hear him say an appreciative “hmmmm” when he eats one.
There are different varieties but we opted to buy these two kinds:
The TOKYO BANANA LANGUE DE CHAT COOKIE “Ai & Sachi” which according to the official website is
Banana shake-flavored white chocolate sandwiched luxuriantly between cute langue de chat cookies baked in a banana silhouette shape.
The baby and I like the cookies better. We bought a box for about 1,020 yen.
This one are the TOKYO BANANA GAUFRETTE which are
Light sweet banana flavored cream sandwiched with two types of specially made crispy wafers, one with plain flavor and the other with chocolate flavor.
These were like large round hard wafers in chocolate banana and vanilla banana flavors. A box of 16 pieces costs about 1,030 yen.
We like these because they are light, flavorful snacks that is good with either tea or coffee (hot or iced). The banana flavor is subtle unlike other fruit flavored snacks that can come off too strong like medicine. The sweetness is also just right, not cloying.
