"Mucchan Manjū" is an iconic Fukuoka snack that is regularly featured in the media. The tasty treats are shaped like "Mutsugoro" (mad skipper), a fish that lives in the Ariake Sea. They are a huge hit with people in Fukuoka! The meal-style manjū are particularly popular among locals, such as the "ham & egg," which is packed full of mayonnaise, and "weiner sausage." It might go without saying, but you can also find sweet manjū stuffed with all sorts of delicious fillings, such as kuro-an (sweet red azuki bean paste), shiro-an (sweet white bean paste), and custard. "Mucchan Manjū" is the perfect snack for anyone feeling hungry! Make sure to check it out next time you are in Fukuoka! The 10th episode of the short anime "Hakata Mentai! Pirikarakochan" revolves around "Mucchan Manjū!” Follow Pirikako-chan and the gang as they try to create a filling that can rival the massively popular "Ham & Egg" option! How will it taste? Join-in to find-out!


● むっちゃん万十 (Mucchan Manjū)

This delicious snack is made by wrapping a soft castella (sponge cake)-style dough around various tasty ingredients. The meal-style manjū are really filling. If you want to sample some of the most popular options, why not try the "Ham & Egg" or "Tuna Salad" manjū? These delightful treats are a big hit with people in Fukuoka. A great deal of care goes into the sourcing the ingredients and preparing each snack by hand. They are also really cheap! You can pick one up for as little as 150 yen (tax included).
