HATTENDO Japanese Chilled Cream Buns is Oishii


Recently, I was invited in SM Megamall for a food tasting event of Hattendo Japanese Chilled Cream Buns. *some photos were grabbed from Hattendo Philippine's page.

Hattendo Japanese Chilled Cream Buns

 First, let me tell you about their history.

"HATTENDO" is named after a small shrine that stood for centuries in Hiroshima, Japan. Travelers used to rest at this small temple and prayed for their safety. Hattendo also means "unlimited prosperity" .

Mr. Kaoru Morimitsu

Mr. Kaoru Morimitsu, the original founder, believed Hattendo should be the brand name of his new venture, and opened the very first store in 1933

Hattendo takes pride in presenting "Japanese Chilled Cream Buns" to a new Asian market with over 80 years of experience to the highest quality of its products. In 2014, HATTENDO sought out partners outside Japan to share its success, offering dealership in many store formats. Today there are 16 stores in Japan, 3 in Korea, 2 in the Philippines, and the company is looking forward to opening more stores in the years to come.

The dough is very delicate. It is always handmade
So that it is never subjected to vibration or shock.

In order to ensure great taste and safe food, the bread-making, cream preparation, and wrapping are all done by hand. All cream buns are baked in Hiroshima, Japan and they go through a special freezing process for international shipping. With careful packaging and excellent logistic services, frozen buns are shipped exclusively to C3 Premium Partnership, Inc., via refrigerated trasportation to ensure that safe sanitary conditions are maintained throughout the products journey to the Philippines. From the port, products are transported by a reefer container, then stored in a temperature-controlled storage. Cream buns are thawed per batch for 24 hours prior to distribution and selling at stores. Because the buns are shipped frozen and already thawed properly, consumers are advised of proper product handling and shelf life, as per Japan's standards.

You will notice in the wrapper, there are 3 dates:

1. Consume before date ( 8-28-15)  by 2pm. - This event was held last August 27. Why 2:00 PM? Because they thaw the buns every 9:00AM the same day everyday. This one was thawed on August 26 prior to selling at store on the 27th.  It's best consumed after the 24-26 hrs thawing, that's why it is best consumed on the 28th before 2pm to enjoy its freshness. Once, it is thawed, DO NOT REFREEZE , they are best served chilled.

2. Production Date - The date when the buns were baked in Japan.

3. Expiry Date - If the buns were kept frozen and not thawed at all, the buns will last up to almost 6 months.

Hattendo cream buns are available in 7 flavors :

I love their Custard, Mango, Chestnut, Azuki, Whipped Cream, Chocolate and Matcha. Oh, wait! Did I mention all the 7 flavors?! That only means I love them all. ♥♥♥ What I love is the light airy texture and delicate taste of cream that melts in my mouth and its refreshing taste.

My Custard Chilled bun best paired with Jasmine Green Tea
Oishii !!!

Pair up the tasty chilled buns with your favorite drink and get more awesomeness. Best shared with family and friends.

Mr. MITD and our unica love the buns too!!! ♥♥♥
Look at those faces... PRICELESS! 

And because he can't get enough of Hattendo, 
we braved the heavy rains and traffic 
because of the rally the next day for this! :)

  1. I've heard so many good things about these buns but haven't gotten the chance to try them yet! Hopefully this weekend! :)

    1. Hi Jaya Melwani! Thank you for dropping by. I guarantee you, the buns are worth every penny you'll spend :)

  2. My hubby brought home some of these buns a couple of weeks ago from an event he attended. Unfortunately, I was able to try only one flavor. It was pretty good. Hope I get to try the other flavors too.

    1. Hi Janice! What flavor was it? All their buns are enticing and really oishii!! You must try the other flavors too ♥ Thank you!

  3. Sounds like yummy flavours! Must be tricky bringing them in all the way from Japan, but it looks like they have a lot of safety measures in place.

  4. Chilled cream sounds delish! Would love to try them.

    1. Hi May! I betcha, you'll love them as much as we do. :) Thanks

  7. with how it was wrapped, i would think it was a burger :P is it soft? and does it taste good with coffee? :D

    1. Hi! Yes, the bun is soft with chilled cream inside. Some say it is best paired with coffee, since I don't drink coffee, I paired it with jasmine tea. It's awesome! ♥ Thank you
