Taste of Hanami

It is this time of the year again: the cherry trees are blooming, and the petals are flying through the streets of Osaka like snowflakes. This year we’ll be doing our hanami party at home, and there is no better way to celebrate than with this combo sweets pack! We’ve combined some crunchy matcha flavored cookies with nostalgic tasting candies. This month’s sweet pack is all you’ll need for your own little hanami party.
