Monaka is a kind of cake that consists of thin baked shells made from rice and filled with sweet red bean paste.
The shape of the shell used nowadays first appeared in the Meiji period (1868 - 1912) and is now used in regions across the country to make a wide variety of popular Monaka.
Cute peanut-shaped Monaka shells are filled with red bean paste kneaded together with a sweet paste made from flavorsome boiled peanuts.
The peanut-shaped box is also a popular item that makes the product the ideal gift.
Peanut Monaka is NAGOMI-YONEYA's most popular product.
