A Secret 7-Eleven Sweet That’s Breaking the Internet! Super Delicious and Affordable!

Convenience stores in Japan are constantly rolling out new products each week. There are many people eagerly awaiting the arrival of new items on a regular basis, but how much do you know about 7-Eleven's lineup of sweets?

7-Eleven's Cheese Mushi Cake Sandwich

Convenience stores list out details of most of their new products on their official website, but you'll have a hard time finding information online about the Cheese Mushi Cake Sandwich (138 JPY incl. tax), which can be found in 7-Eleven's sweets section. It's a dessert that silently slipped its way onto shelves without much of a notice!

This item consists of steamed cake-like bread with cream layered in between. It's manufactured by Yamazaki Baking Co., Ltd., and each cake has 287 calories.

A Huge Hit With Raving Reviews!

Unlike other new dessert products that are widely advertised, the Cheese Mushi Cake is relatively unknown. Still, there are numerous comments online raving about it, saying it's "so good that it'll make you swoon" and that they "would pick this cake over something more expensive." Many reviews stated that they would definitely buy it again or they already bought them in bulk because of how addictive and tasty they are.

We decided to give it a try for ourselves. Our verdict? It's really, really tasty!

The Cheese Mushi Cake Sandwich is fluffy and moist, with a gentle cheesy flavor that goes together really well with the cream. It's slightly sweet and has a light texture, so we finished it off in just a matter of seconds.

If you've ever had Yamazaki's long-seller product Hokkaido Cheese Mushi Cake, just imagine chilling it and adding cream to the mix and you'll have a good idea of what it tastes like.

If you're a fan of Hokkaido Cheese Mushi Cake, you'll be sure to fall in love with this dessert, too! It's super delicious, and it's really affordable with a low price of just 138 JPY. If you see it in stores, be sure to try it!
