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.
