Kinako nejiri are a traditional Japanese sweet with a twisted shape that resembles the woven shimenawa ropes found at shrines in Japan and is said to bring good luck. They’re a nostalgic candy made from kinako, a roasted soybean powder with a slightly sweet, yet nutty flavor, that is commonly used as a topping for Japanese desserts.

To make kinako nejiri, kinako is mixed with sugar to produce a thick dough which is stretched into thin sheets and sliced into bite-sized pieces. Unlike other producers that use machines to then twist their kinako nejiri, Sapporo Daiichi Seika’s skilled craftsmen twist these pieces by hand, creating its soft handmade charm. They have also added green tea which adds a traditional bittersweet, vegetal taste.

Sapporo Daiichi Seika is a small confectionery that was established in 1942 in Hokkaido’s capital city of Sapporo. They use simple ingredients and processes to create their sweets which, although not fancy, are full of flavor. Each ingredient is thoughtfully sourced to complement one another with craftsmen taking into account each day’s temperature and humidity to ensure that every sweet is of the highest quality.

Suggested uses: Enjoy as is. Pairs perfectly with a cup of Japanese tea.
