Product Description

Gokabo
Gokabo is characterized by its simple but elegant sweetness added to the fragrance of toasted soybean flour. Soka senbei, Kawagoe's imogashi, and gokabo are Saitama's three major snacks. Gokabo, a traditional snack that has been sold since the Edo period, is made from a glutinous rice cake dusted with toasted soybean flour. Gokabo, which is mainly made around the northern part of the prefecture, uses a unique, traditional manufacturing technique. Skilled confectioners produce their own types of gokabo that are different from each other in flavor. Try this traditional Japanese snack if you have a chance to visit Saitama.
