Do you know that crunchy and juicy ""candied strawberry"" is now a popular sweet all over the world?
In the fashion building ""SHIBUYA 109"" in Tokyo, the city of young fashion, a candied strawberry specialty shop called ""Strawberry Fetish"" is newly opened,
specifically offering this kind of ""candied strawberry""
I, Bananako, did go to the shop, and summarized some information such as the menus on sale, my feeling after tasting the candied strawberries, as well as the location of the shop
The Reason Why "Candied Strawberry" is Popular Now
I know it's quite sudden to ask, but do you know a genre of video called ""ASMR""?
""ASMR"" is short for ""Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response"", and it refers to the videos and music created basing on the ""sounds"" made in daily life to help people relax
For example, ""the sound of rubbing a microphone with a cotton swab"", ""the sound of kneading slime"" and ""the sound of gently whispering"" are all ASMR
The sound of eating foods (chewing) is also a famous type of ASMR, among which the crunchy, juicy sound of eating ""candied fruit"" is extremely popular!
For this reason, the candied strawberry videos burst their popularity recently among SNS like YouTube and Instagram
"Candied Strawberry" is Closely Related to Japanese Culture
Candied strawberry has been loved also in Japan since a long time ago
It's often served during ""Omatsuri"" (Japanese Festivals) held all over Japan
At Ennichi (a day believed to have a special relation (en) with a particular Japanese deity), there are plenty of colorful candied fruit offered, among which the candied strawberries are extremely loved by both adults and children
Thread 3 to 5 strawberries onto a thin bamboo stick, and then make some syrup by melting the red colored sugar. Dip the stick into the sugary syrup and wait for it to dry, then the crunchy candied strawberry stick is done
