This month we visit the beaches of Okinawa. Known as Japan’s tropical paradise, it is also well-known for its unique take on food. It is well-known for its pineapples and kokuto. Pineapples are so famous that you can visit a location named Pineapple Park. Here you can come and watch the pineapples grow! Bokksu brings you on a tropical adventure so that you can experience snacks from thousands of miles away.
Beni Imo Milk Manju
Manju is a traditional Japanese confection made with flour rice powder and buckwheat. Instead of the classic red bean paste. This delectable treat has a beni imo (purple yam native to Okinawa) filling and is a fun purple delight!
This Okinawan cookie is so delightfully soft and chewy. Take a bite and enjoy its filling made from sun soaked pineapples grown in Okinawa.
Pineapple Stick Cake
Only in the season from June to August, this soft and spongy stick cake is a twist on regular cakes due to the sweet aroma and tiny bits of Okinawan pineapples.
Anly’s Chura Wich (Brown Sugar & Rum Raisins)
This surprisingly fragrant sandwich cookie is full of creamy kokuto filling and chewy run raisins which make it an ideal treat for snacking.
Brown Sugar Okinawa Chinsuko
Chinsuko is one of Okinawa’s famous confections and is a wildly popular omiyage (souvenir). Reminiscent of shortbread this traditional Okinawan biscuit is perfectly crumbly and has a rich deep flavour from the added kokuto.
Brown Sugar Karinto (Donuts)
With the shape and feel of a karinto (sweet deep-fried dough) this stick doughnut is coated with Okinawa’s famous kokuto. Enjoy the tasty combination of crunchiness and softness.
Okinawa Salt Cheese Cookie
With savory notes brought out by the premium Okinawan salt, this cheese cookie melts in your mouth the moment you bit into it.
These savory deep-fried soba noodles tossed in Okinawan red pepper are deliciously addictive and pair well with a cold drink like mugicha. It’s crunch texture and tantalizing flavour will make it your go-to snack for the summer.
Mugicha Barley Tea
Mugicha is synonymous with summer in Japan. Usually served cold, this refreshing tea has perfect nutty notes and is caffeine free which makes it a great replacement for coffee due to its similar toasty flavour.
Great trip to Okinawa, I only wish I could stay longer. Many new favourites were discovered this month. Another super offering from Bokksu. I truly appreciate the dedication and attention that goes into each snack selection. For example having the Okinawa soba with the mugicha tea was fun. This is how the snack is enjoyed locally and I was given what I needed to share the experience. A little bit of sunshine and beaches and it would have been perfect.
