Goshiki-mame

  

This is Mamemasa’s “Goshiki-mame”.

It is roasted beans of five different colors covered with a sugar coating.

It has existed since 1887.

And it is an auspicious confection which was presented to the Taisho Emperor. 

It is made up of 5 colors of red, yellow,white, green and brown.

The fresh sweetness of high quality sugar is good.

It is a well known Kyoto confection.

 For me it is a very nostalgic taste.
