Can you imagine there are no sweets in your life? Can you live without lovely sweets? Sweets are desperately needed for me. I usually go to a convenience store on the way to go to university or my part time job and buy sweets. 24 hours convenience stores are for people who are a slave to them like me, so you can buy anything whenever you want. People who usually stop by stores think it’s better than restaurants or cafes because they can get anything and eat anywhere when they want. There’re many kind of the stores since stores are in a high demand and it’s a very competitive market. So they devote all of energies to product development. I see often a line people are forming a line in front of a counter at a peak period. Actually some Japanese are busy and pressed for time and they are typical workaholic especially almost businessmen. Stores aren’t waste of a time so people use them. Then what kind of sweets is popular? Research by Japanese TV in 2012, it showed the highest ranked convenience store was because people thought that price range is easy on a wallet. It means that priority was changed from low price to high quality.
My favorite is a pudding. It sells more than 12000 per a day. It costs you just 120 yen and it’s inexpensive. So some people might think it’s cheap and nasty but exactly it’s a big mistake in the case of this sweet! I felt as if it was melting on my tongue and I thought everyone has to try it soon. It’s absolutely brilliant! Definitely you’ll be fascinated by it. I really want you to try to eat the pudding if you’ve never eaten this amazing sweet, but be careful of eating too much because you’ll get fat gradually like me.
