1. Choco Bucky

Choco Bucky (from 64 JPY (incl. tax)) is a vanilla ice cream bar folded with random layers of sweet chocolates of various textures. It is an extremely popular product at Chateraise, and more than 100 million bars have been sold since it debuted in 2018.
The highlight of this ice cream bar is the excellent balance of mild-tasting vanilla ice cream that melts in your mouth and the chocolate that changes texture as you eat the ice cream bar. You will definitely get hooked on the sensation that the chocolate gives, as it is sometimes crunchy and light, and sometimes chunky and quite filling.
In addition to the standard vanilla flavor, Chateraise also offers ice cream bars with seasonal flavors, as well as flavors specifically targeted to adults, so make sure to check them out at the store!

2. Hokkaido Butter Dorayaki

Hokkaido Butter Dorayaki (129 JPY (incl. tax)) is a Japanese confection that is made by filling tiger-striped dorayaki cakes (soft, pancake-like patties) with salty buttercream and pleasantly-sweet red bean paste.
Chateraise is particular about the ingredients it uses in this dorayaki, including the slightly sweet red bean paste made from high-quality Tokachi adzuki beans from Hokkaido, which are cooked at Chateraise\'s own factory, and the buttercream, made by mixing Okinawan sea salt with butter from Hokkaido.

The balance of the dorayaki that is soft and moist, the red bean paste that is not too sweet, and the saltiness of the smooth buttercream is so perfect that you will surely get addicted once you try it.

This dorayaki is as big as the palm of your hand and is easy to eat. It’s also reasonably priced, so it would make for a great souvenir.

3. Double Choux Creme

Double Choux Creme (Double Cream Puff) (108 JPY (incl. tax)), a perennial favorite among customers since its launch in 1993, is a soft and moist choux pastry that is filled with milk-flavored whipped cream made from pure, fresh cream from Hokkaido and rich, eggy vanilla custard cream.
The choux pastry is mixed with almond flour, giving it a faint smell of roasted almonds. Take a bite and your mouth will be flooded with the delicious taste of the thick, soft cream. Be careful not when you bite into it, though, because the delicious cream likes to spill out!

4. Additive-Free Single Farm Egg Pudding

The Additive-Free Single Farm Egg Pudding (Mutenka Keiyaku Nojo Tamago no Purin) (108 JPY (incl. tax)) is a custard pudding with a simple taste that is regarded as the most popular among all the puddings from Chateraise.
For this pudding, Chateraise contracted with a single farm to develop special eggs that are perfect for confections. The pudding is characterized by its robust taste that lets you savor the natural flavors of the ingredients.
The pudding is slightly firm and is light on sweetness. The accompanying bittersweet caramel sauce works to accentuate the pudding\'s subtle sweetness, creating a delicious finish that will keep you dipping in for another spoonful.

This pudding is completely free from additives as it is made with only eggs, milk, sugar, and caramel syrup, making it a recommended snack for small children.

5. Kawaii Kumachan

Kawaii Kumachan (280 JPY (incl. tax)), which is very popular with small children, is a cupcake that is inspired by a cute bear.
This cupcake is made with a chocolate-flavored sponge cake dotted with chocolate chips and generously coated with chocolate cream, making it irresistible for people who love sweets and chocolate.
The appearance is really adorable, so you will probably hesitate to eat it for a second. Once you get to taste its light flavor, however, you won’t be able to stop. The surface of the cupcake is sprinkled with cocoa powder, so take care when eating it not to blow cocoa everywhere!

6. Fuwafuwa Souffle Cheesecake

As the name suggests, the Fuwafuwa Souffle Cheesecake (216 JPY (incl. tax)) is best known for its fluffy (“fuwafuwa” in Japanese) texture.
This cheesecake is characterized by its delicate, snow-like softness that makes it seem as though the fluffy dough will immediately melt as soon as you put it in your mouth. However, the cheesecake is baked with a blend of two kinds of French cream cheeses that are known for their richness, so you will definitely not miss the rich cheese flavor that is essential to any cheesecake. This is what makes it the perfect dessert for those who love cheese.

The cake is delicious eaten as is, but I like to put it in the freezer for about 15 minutes before digging in. When you pop it in the freezer, the fluffy dough becomes firm, making the cheese taste even richer.
