I’ve got 4 kinds of Melon Pan, so let me share their taste by ranking style.
Choco Choco Melon Pan
Although it was delicious, It was the taste exactly that I thought. If I pay 210 JPY for this Melon Pan, I am sure that I will buy it at the convenience store. I was expecting the rich chocolate taste and flavor by its name ” Choco Choco”, it didn’t have such kind of taste. I was disappointed a little.
Green tea Melon Pan
Compared to Chocolate Choco Melon Pan, it has crispy texture of cookie layer on the top. It was splendid. It has the flavor of Green tea. If you love green tea, you will be addicted for sure.
Tea Melon Pan
This was amazing. It goes well with milk tea. It smells very good. I have never eaten this delicious Melon Pan.
Crown Melon Pan
Even considering the highest price, it deserves to try. This is hands down the best Melon Pan. The cream of inside was kind of custard cream flavored Melon. It was splendid. Although it was sweet, not too sweet. The bread tastes good too.
