Japan Epilogue: Sapporo's Shiroi Koibito
I'm usually not much for sweets, but I do like this stuff. These featherlight little cookies are from Sapporo, where milk from local cows goes into the white chocolate that is sandwiched inside. And while we didn't go up to Hokkaido on this trip, I was surprised to find them for sale at Narita airport on the way out of the country (I'd only seen them in Sapporo previously).
I think I know why I like these so much. They are more rich than they are sweet, and the cookie portion appears to be made with a crapload of butter, if my palate read it correctly. No wonder why these things are so darned addictive.
