Mahoroba Daibutsu Pudding or Mahoroba Great Buddha Pudding, with its popular design that is both representative of Nara and very cute at the same time.
The pudding’s ingredients are what it is known for. The ingredients are from Nara, and are trusted by parents so that even their small children can eat it.
The flavor is smooth and refined.
There are many different flavors, including the popular custard, chocolat, and rare cheese flavors. There is also Japanese sake pudding that uses some local Nara sake, and Yamato Tea pudding that uses the local tea Nara is known for.
I hope you can find a flavor you like!
