A combination of soft cookie, chocolate banana and raisins07 July, 2010 by Yan
Following through in the Tokyo Banana Kurobe series, I’ll be introducing another sister product of the Tokyo Banana product line: the Tokyo Banana Kurobe Raisin (東京ばな奈の黒ベエレーズン). There is also a non-chocolate version of the snack called Tokyo Banana Raisin, unfortunately I did not buy any so I can’t make a comparison of both products. So I’ll strictly stick to introducing the chocolate version here.
To simplify things, to first unveil what the Tokyo Banana Kurobe Raisin actually is. It’s a banana chocolate cream sandwich, with the addition of whole raisins within the cream. The Tokyo Banana Raisin is just the same product, but only without the chocolate flavor. For those interested to see the visual differences between Tokyo Banana Raisin and Tokyo Banana Kurobe Raisin, here are links to the official website (Non-chocolate/chocolate).
Pictures of the Tokyo Banana Kurobe Raisin and taste review below.
The best description for the Tokyo Banana Kurobe Raisin snack will be: an enlarged Oreo biscuit infused with banana cream and raisins. From the pictures the cookie might look dull and dry, but I assure you that it tastes better than it looks.
The chocolate cookie is actually of a soft kind, vastly different from the usual dry and hard versions that would be paired with milk or coffee. Unsurprisingly, chocolate and banana pair up amazingly well with each other, so taste wise it would be a very safe bet for most people. The raisins did well in this snack to provide an extra dimension of texture and flavor.
