  1. They all look good, but I expect that with Sakuraco. My personal hope is another jelly or kuzumochi.

  2. I’m not worried about what the mystery item is, as Sakuraco’s quality is always high. I am hoping for kuzumochi, kanten, or a jelly.

  3. My mystery snack was the layered matcha pie! It does go well witha cup of tea, I’m happy I get to try the new genmaicha tea with the matcha pie.
