Sakura, cherry blossom, is like a princess of flowers in Japanese spring and attracts many people with the any aspects. Around the time of the blooming, a lot of ingredients which have Sakura flavor come out anywhere in Japan. The circumstances might be quite similar to that many ingredients of pumpkin are on store shelves around Halloween in your countries. For people who are not so close to the pinky flower, it might be hard to imagine the taste.
Sakura flavor tastes a bit sweet with a scent of the flower
The taste is a little bit complicated to explain in simple words, but I could say it’s simply like a soft flavor of cherries. To be honest, I don’t think Sakura flavor is acceptable for many people especially foreigners, because it doesn’t clearly complain the taste on our tongue. Except for letting us know that spring has come, we only could enjoy the scent and color once during cherry blossoms bloom.
What can we easily get Sakura flavor from?
Actually, there’re so many ingredients to be sold from sort of food companies, and some of the popular ones seal regular position for every spring. We can see the attractive sweets on the streets from close brands like Starbucks, Haagen-Dazs, KitKat and so on.
I’d like to recommend that you enjoy these sweets with Sake in Hanami festivals while touching the Japanese distinctive culture. Enjoy your spring!
