Dorachoco – Dorayaki Pancake with Chocolate “Dagashi” Sweets
One of the most famous, long-serialized Japanese manga, Doraemon is on the air around the world and widely enjoyed.The main character, or the gadget cat from the future, Doraemon is well-known for loving yummy buns.
The pancake that appears in the popular Japanese manga is the traditional Japanese sweet called “Dorayaki (どら焼き)“, which typically consists of 2 round, moist pancakes with the sweet red bean paste “Anko (餡子)” in between.

This is the orthodox style of Doraemon’s yummy buns, but in modern times, the traditional Japanese confection, Dorayaki comes in various types.Especially, the one that is popular with children is the Dagashi-type.
As you may know, “Dagashi (駄菓子)” is the generic name for cheap and relatively small snacks and candies (sweets).It is generally being sold for 10 to 100 yen in Japan so that kids can buy those snacks and candies with small change.
Since today I picked up a famous dagashi dorayaki bun at a supermarket near my house, I want to introduce it.

The dorayaki pancake mainly for children that I purchased this time is “Dora Choco (どらチョコ)” from Yaokin, the Japanese food company well-known for the king of dagashi snacks, “Umaibo (うまい棒)” (Amazon.com).
There are 2 pancakes with a soft and moist texture just like traditional dorayaki buns in the package, but these are pretty small compared to regular dorayaki.
Besides, instead of sweet red bean paste, thick chocolate cream is sandwiched between the 2 pancakes.What is better for kids, the price of the dagashi sweet “Dorachoco” is just 30 yen.
The ingredients of Dorachoco dagashi pancake
The main ingredients of Dorachoco pancakes are the same as those of traditional dorayaki buns, that is, sugar, flour, hen’s egg, starch syrup, and honey.It is said that the moist texture of dorayaki sweets comes from honey.
