I loved this and would order more, but am afraid of ordering food from Japan. Can anyone tell me where all the components of this were made, and where it was manufactured? Are these products test for radiation? I hate to bring all this up but I bet I'm not the only one.

I had always been curious about the mythical 'red bean paste' that the Japanese use so frequently in their wagashi, desserts, recipes, and other foods. Now I know why it's so favoured. This was absolutely delicious. The texture was not something I was used to, and I'm definitely a 'texture person', but it was soft and chewy, moist but dry, and it didn't throw me off at all. The flavour itself was incredible. Sweet, but not too sweet and no aftertaste. Very delicious. I'll certainly be buying it again in the future.
