2. 7-Eleven - Strawberry Mont Blanc Pudding Parfait
A pudding-parfait composed of a big custard pudding surrounded by a generous portion of sweet and sour strawberry Mont Blanc cream. Underneath the cream, there's a layer of Bavarian cream and sponge cake. It might seem extremely sweet, but the sweet and sour strawberry cream has a very refreshing taste, so it's surprisingly not too sweet. It's a very colorful and filling dessert!
Price: 297 JPY (incl. tax)
3. 7-Eleven - Strawberry Sandwich
Strawberry sandwiches are extremely popular this time of year. A slightly different alternative to cake, this is a fruit sandwich with 4 strawberries sandwiched between two slices of bread. The whipped cream and the custard cream, which is made with premium eggs, create the perfect match. As it's a very popular product, it's often sold out. Check the sandwich aisle for it, and if you're able to find it, give it a try!
Price: 298 JPY (incl. tax)
4. Lawson - Strawberry Roll Cake
A roll cake in special packaging that will catch your eye. The sweet aroma of strawberry will reach your nose as soon as the package is opened, revealing an Amao strawberry (a Japanese strawberry brand) in the center of the roll cake. Both the sponge cake and the sauce are made using plenty of strawberries. The milky, lightly sweet strawberry cream brings all the flavors together to make the ultimate strawberry roll cake.
Price: 230 JPY (incl. tax)
5. Lawson - Strawberry Cream Daifuku
A daifuku (soft rice cake) with a whole strawberry stuffed inside. This daifuku, a popular Japanese dessert, is a delicious collaboration of Japanese and Western flavors, with condensed milk cream wrapped inside. The springy texture and the fresh, sweetness and sourness of the juicy strawberry make for the perfect match! The mochi on the outside becomes very soft, so eat it while it's cold!
Price:165 JPY (incl. tax)
6. Lawson - Strawberry Parfait
This parfait is absolutely stuffed with strawberries, with strawberry mousse, strawberry sponge cake, strawberry sauce, milk mousse, and strawberry sauce. First, try a spoonful of the mousse on top and relish in the sweet and sour strawberry taste. Then, get a spoonful of the sauce and the sponge cake and enjoy a burst of strawberry flavors in your mouth. You'll be able to really taste the sweet and sourness of strawberries in each bite of this parfait!
Price: 350 JPY (incl. tax)
7. Family Mart - Strawberry Mocchi
A large amount of strawberry chocolate is stuffed into the bread's springy dough, which is overflowing with a strawberry aroma. Bits of cookie and strawberry sugar chips are sprinkled over this pastry as an accent to the flavors, with strawberry cream folded into the bouncy dough. Rather than tasting like sweet bread, this strawberry-stuffed pastry has more of a refreshing, sweet and sour strawberry taste.
Price: 135 JPY (incl. tax)
8. Family Mart - Strawberry Stick Cake
A stick-shaped strawberry cake that's easy to eat. The addictive, fruity cream batter, made with strawberry puree, is spread out onto a cookie base. You'll feel like you're eating a no-bake strawberry cheesecake! The strawberry coating on the cake makes it look like a high-quality dessert. The thin, stick-shape of this delicious dessert allows you to eat it without getting it all over your hands and mouth!
Price: 128 JPY (incl. tax)
9. Mini Stop - Double Berry Mille-Feuille
A voluminous dessert cup with 2 big pieces of pie crust on top. Mille-feuille cake is usually difficult to eat, but in a cup, you'll be able to eat it quickly and easily! The taste is rich due to the custard cream and the vanilla scented whipped cream. The sour aroma of berries is also really refreshing. The French words written on the cup add to this dessert's charm.
Price: 260 JPY (incl. tax)
10. Mini Stop - Strawberry Shortcake
Everyone loves shortcakes! A fluffy sponge paired with pure white whipped cream and bright red strawberries, they're also a classic choice for birthday cakes in Japan. It's so popular that it can probably be found in every pastry shop in the country. The combination of whipped cream, sponge cake, and juicy strawberries is simple but undoubtedly delicious. Give it a try!
Price: 320 JPY (incl. tax)
Many of this season's strawberry sweets concentrate on bringing out the sweet and sour juiciness of strawberries. Convenience store desserts are the best, since they're so cheap and easy to eat. They're only available for a limited time, so they might disappear from shelves soon! If you find any of these at a store, give them a try!
