This popular Japanese bread is ideal for a light snack or a tasty dessert. It’s called “Melon” because of its shape, and not so much its flavor- which is a little closer to sweet lemon, than melon. “Daiichi Pan” loosely translates to ‘Number One Bread.’ And oddly enough, this is our best selling bread. So give it a try and see if it's earned its name.

The top was oddly gooey - maybe the Texas heat got to mine. Fortunately, I don't mind! Very mild lemon taste. The bread inside was a little bit dry. It's a bit big - I probably shouldn't have eaten the entire bun in one sitting! I wish these were a little smaller; I'm not sure how well half a bun would last after the bag's seal was broken. For this price I don't know if I'll buy it again.

I tried this for the first time today, and i tested out Ashley's recommendation about heating them to a slight crunch. Although i didn't want to get crisp, the warming did help, and wow its amazing! one of my favorites, the flavor is light, I was able to really taste the lemon after it warmed just fine, wonderful snack! Definitely need to order more.

I love melon bread, it's one of my favorite Japanese snacks. This one was very good, and definitely worth trying.

These awesome pastries are supposed to be slightly crunchy on the top while being nice and fluffy inside, but usually when you order it by the time they get to you they are really moist on the top. I've found a way to fix this and make them wonderful the way they are supposed to be. When you open them put them in the oven or toaster oven for a few minutes and reheat them. Crunchy on top and wonderfully warm. Perfect.

I have been dying to try this, so my husband ordered it for my birthday =) This is absolutely as heavenly as described in anime (yep I watch alot)... I think I'm finally motivated to try making some! It's got a very light lemony aroma and even lighter lemon flavor on the upper layer...the top layer is nicely moist and the bread is fluffy and soft....totally delightful!!
