Salt Caramel Roll

See how cute their plastic bag is
The other side
The brand of the shop
See how cute the box are
woo la la

Bought this at ION Orchard last week and ohhh i cant resist anything that is written butterscotch or caramel, therefore i want this!! Look at the vanilla roll coated with thick thick layer of caramel, tell me which sweet tooth can resist this???!!! To my disappointment this cake is sold out almost everyday in less than an hour when the shop opens and i have to make reservation in order to get mine. It cost me $18. what so great about this is : this cake is being flown in from Japan, so now u get it why a piece of cake cost such a high price. They are fluffy, light and not so sweet coz the caramel taste a bit bitter and salty. But if u ask me will i buy it a again i will say a "NO" (but i am glad i have it once in a lifetime), the reason? Stated below:

Y did i buy them in the first place? :
  • I was being attract by the appearance
  • Coz its written "sold out" every time i walk pass them
  • Every review online seems to have positive feedback
  • Famous in Japan
  • Curious about the taste
  • Curious what makes them sold out everyday and having such long Q in Japan
Y i dislike it :
  • Its expensive
  • Its so small
  • Its not really "delicious" as much as it look
  • It comes with bitter taste
  • I cant accept salty taste in my cake
  • Nothing fantastic to make me want to buy it again
What i like about it :
  • It fluffy
  • Not very sweet (no guilty feeling after eating it) lol
  • Comes in 3 flavors (vanilla, salt caramel, green tea)
