Daiichipan Melon Bread 9.6 oz

Quick Overview

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.

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!!



Arigatou!

I saw melon bread in the anime, "DearS" and the alien girl character Ren is obsessed with melon bread. I had to try some to see what the fuss was all about. After trying this melon bread, I know why she loved melon bread so much; Melon bread is quite tasty! To the other reviewer who said melon bread tastes like lemons, not melons, this is true. Melon bread is traditionally not melon flavored, silly head! (source: wikipedia)

I also got the idea to try melon bread from the anime, Shakugan no Shana. THe bread was okay, even a little dry. Definitely tasted of lemon, not melon. Not bad, but not great. I was glad I tried it, but won't buy it again.

Well I ordered two of these treats. One to eat cold and one to eat warm. Just to see if the taste would differ. Both were very good, still not the complexity I was looking for. It's a simple snack. The outer being a bit gooey in texture with a lemony taste while the inner, was well bread.

The texture is a big soggy, but that is because it is frozen. It wasn't really my taste (I have a hard time eating sweets) but my family and roommates loved it! If you like a sweet taste mixed with the natural taste of bread, you'll love Melon Pan.

I bought this melon bread a while back. Ever since going to Japan and eating the Melon bread there, I wanted to try the one here. The bread was a bit soggy, and not sugary like the actual melon bread you can buy in Japan. It tasted okay, but I don't think I'll buy it again because I'd rather go to Japan and eat the real stuff there. I hope in the future, there will be melon pan that is the same from Japan.

The melon bread I recieved in the mail was a bit soggy...the texture was doughy... kinda like I was bitting into unbaked bread dough. It left an unpleasent taste in my mouth. I will order more and hopefully this time it doesn't turn out the same. I will write another review after my shipment comes in.

So I bought a couple of these because I want to cosplay as Shana from Shakugan no Shana, and her favorite food is melon pan. So i wanted to see if it was good and if i liked it or not, so i could eat them while in cosplay. I opened up the package and smelled it, it definitely is not melon, but lemony, i'm not complaining :). I took a bite and it tasted soooo good, very lemony and the bread was stiff, yet soft at the same time, it is the perfect consistency in my opinion. I loved this bread and it is now officially my favorite new snack, i highly suggest everyone to try it ^_^.

It's called "melon" bread, because of it's shape. The flavor is actually lemon (think lemon poppyseed muffins. The taste is similar.) which is concentrated in a thin layer on top of a flavorless white bread bun. Quite delicious, although not very nutritious. The amount of sweetness is just right. The flavor is kind of uninteresting.

Ever since I ate my first Melon Bread.. I've wondered why exactly it's called melon bread, because to me it's very lemony tasting.

I absolutely love this bread. It's so delicious!

I just bought couple of these and I just got them today. When I opend the package of the Melon Pan and took a sniff, it smelled sooo good. And when I bit into into that soft bread it was sooo delicious!!!! I love them!!! I was always told from othe rpeople and my Japanese friends and my Sensei's that I should try the Melon Pan, and I got too and it was sooo good. :) If your wanting a really yummy treat one of these is a good thing to get. :) I am going to buy more of these, and I am going to try some of the other tasty interesting foods on this site as well. Thank you!!!! このメロンパンはとてもおいしいです。ありがとうございました。^^

I've been a customer of AFG for a few years now and had always missed out on the chance to try the melon bread until a few months ago when I decided to take a risk and order a few of them for myself. I was expecting something filled with a unique custard or some such since descriptions on melon bread are rather vague all over the internet. Instead I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that while it didn't have a filling, it was chock full of deliciously light and tender flavor. The bread was satisfying and just sweet enough to make me feel soothed and happy all over. It was definitely a guiltless and WONDERFUL alternative to say... chocolate ice cream or some heavily creamed cake. Definitely an option I'd love to keep in my kitchen for whenever I want a nice snack with milk. It's amazing. Better yet, it's Epic!
