This bread is light and fluffy with a buttery sweet taste and a feel like it was just freshly baked. Inside the pastry is red bean paste, which provides a naturally sweet essence that is perfectly subtle and compliments the bread perfectly. Try this treat for a well balanced flavor and a texture that’ll convince you it was fresh from a chef’s oven.

Very good. Similar to the other Tennenkoubo Red Bean bread for sale here; this bread was slightly more buttery on top, and the beans have their skins. While the filling did smell a bit like peanut butter, I couldn't taste it at all. Just tasted like sweet red bean paste to me! With these Tennenkoubo breads it's a good idea to let your bread "air out" a bit after you open them; this gets rid of the slightly weird smell/taste that can be caused by the alcohol packet included to preserve the bread. I'll probably still order the other Tennenkoubo red bean bread (it seems to have just a little more paste), but if that is ever out of stock I'll be quick to order this instead. Highly recommend.

It was aright at first but as I got to the center, it almost tasted fermented and alcoholic? I'm not sure why. The bread part was good though.

Thought the red bean taste would be yummy. Did not like it at all. Great texture though.
