Hikawa Mochi (rice cracker)
100% domestic rice is used in pursuit of the “flavor” of rice. The rice is carefully steamed and slowly baked twice. The name and pattern are inspired by the approach to a local shrine and a zelkova tree. It is a crispy and thick soft rice cracker. Three flavors are available: salad, Negimiso (scallion & bean paste), and soy sauce.

Lemon-Dou Pudding of Hikawa Sando
The most popular product and the specialty of Pudding Factory Lemon-Dou. They are made with all ingredients and production methods, including eggs and pure fresh cream produced in Saitama Prefecture. It is a product in which all of our efforts are concentrated.

Usagi-mochi Monaka and Rugan (6 pieces)
Usagi-mochi monaka is a crispy, cute monaka with skin shaped like a rabbit from the Tsuki-jinja shrine and filled with red bean paste and gyuhi. Rugan is a moist baked sweet with yellowish red bean paste inside a dragon’s face.

These soft cakes have egg added to the sweet bean mix inside, are kneaded into beautiful sphere shapes, and then given a milk coating. Aside from this main flavor, matcha, coffee, as well as seasonal flavors are also available.
