Soft sweet potato cubes candied in a delightful, sugar coating.

Maintaining their naturally creamy texture on the inside, Masui turns the sweet, comforting bite of sweet potatoes into a cubed, sugar-coated snack, perfect for sharing. Traditionally preserved in mizuame sugar syrup before being boiled to produce their unique, glacé coating, these sweet potato pieces come with a firm, honey-sweet flavour on the outside to complement their gentle, melt in the mouth centre, creating a simple yet luxury snack ideal to serve with both teatime or evening beverages.

For some reason, I was expecting them to be less sweet and for the sweet potato taste to be more prominent. This is entirely subjective, and I think other people would really enjoy them, but the combination of extreme ** (by my standards) and the overall texture didn't work for me. It was a bit like eating fondant icing.
