Let me just start off by saying I absolutely love Okinawan food. I went last summer and my taste bud's were in heaven. Needless to say, when 7-11 brought out their Okinawan treats for the summer I was thrilled!
There were so many choices, I browsed and browsed for about 10 minutes. Being the indecisive person I am it took me for ever to choose. Today I noticed a new product. It is Okinawan cookie with rare cheese! I have been craving cheese cake lately so I knew I had to buy it!
The bottom was crushed up Okinawan cookies, the middle was salty rare cheese, and on top there was whip cream. That seems to spell out delicious to me, although I was a little wary of the salty rare cheese. It seemed very similar to cheese cake as well because the cookies looked basically like a crust.
When I opened it there was no strong smell or anything. I took my first bite, it was good, but I was still a bit doubtful. After my second or third bite, I was sold. I do wish there was more of the cookie in the bottom. Plus, I liked the salty cheese, but I wish it had been a bit sweeter. It has been so hot lately that I have been turned off to salty foods. It just makes me even thirstier than I already am. Haha. On the plus side it did survive the heat on my walk home.
I do recommend this treat, but next time I want to try a different one. I spotted some delicious looking Okinawan bread that I will buy, specifically the brown sugar walnut steamed bread. I also recommend the Okinawan donuts!! (I had those last time! But I forgot to take pictures!)
What Okinawan treats have you tried? How was it?
