Morinaga Choco Monaka Jumbo Ice Cream

As I wrote a while ago, Monaka (最中) is a traditional Japanese confection or Wagashi consisting of Anko (餡子: sweet Azuki red bean paste) covered in two crisply baked rice wafers.

In modern times, the treat comes with various fillings, and representatives include vanilla ice cream.

The variety is called Monaka Ice (モナカアイス), and Choco Monaka (チョコモナカ) is among them and is very familiar to us Japanese.

When Japanese people hear Choco Monaka, many will picture Choco Monaka Jumbo (チョコモナカジャンボ).

First introduced in 1972 by the name of Choco Monaka, Choco Monaka Jumbo is a product from Morinaga Confectionery that’s been a standard Monaka Ice in Japan for decades.

As its name suggests, the ice cream treat, Choco Monaka Jumbo, is much bigger than traditional Monaka sweets. 

Nonetheless, the rice wafer covering is just as crisp as the traditional one, thanks to the chocolate oil coated inside the wafers, which prevents the vanilla ice cream from softening the snack.

Since the thin chocolate bar in the middle is also pleasantly crisp, the ice cream treat consists of a three-layer structure that is so good in taste and texture.

Price & Where to Buy
