Irresistible, if describe it in one word. To add some more words, crunchy, rich sweetness with a hint of bitterness.
Karinto is a traditional Japanese sweet snack. It’s so popular that you can buy them anywhere in Japan. They say Japanese missions to Tang China brought a similar snack to Japan in the 8th century. The sugar production wasn’t introduced in Japan at that time yet. So, candies using sugar very rare. That’s why the Karinto developed in Kyoto.
As years go by and sugar became easily available, it became a snack for people on the street. Many variations emerged up to areas with different flavors, textures, and extra ingredients. There are many candies with nostalgic appeal in Japan. It is one of the most popular ones among them.
The recipe is simple, so you can cook it at home if it’s not available in your neighborhood.
