Have a taste of this famous Japanese snack without traveling to Japan.
Japanese fruit sandwich, commonly known as fruit sando in Japan, is a simple sandwich made with fluffy Japanese milk bread (shokupan) stuffed with fresh fruits and sweetened cream. These sandwiches are a popular food item in Japanese cafes and convenience stores. Aside from their vibrant colors that make them look appetizing, their taste is surprisingly irresistible. Every bite of Japanese fruit sandwich is a burst of sweet and creamy flavors.
While the bread is pillowy, it is the filling that takes the spotlight. Symmetrically shaped strawberries, orange, kiwi, and grapes adorn the sandwich and sometimes patterned like flowers. Also, the sweetened whipped cream that holds all the ingredients together completes the smooth, heavenly taste of this fruity sandwich.
