When I was researching about Nara, I found this pudding with a raving review and I know I have to tried since I love pudding so much.

The original store at Nara Narazaka-cho only open till 5.30pm so I was pretty disappointed cause turn's out I'm running out of time after the sight seeings and have a reservations for dinner at Kotan at 5pm but the luck was on my side. After dinner we went back to Nara station and I found out that they have a small shop over there and it open till late.

The most popular flavour is their original custard flavour and Yamatocha's Nara green tea, both of this flavour comes in two size; large - 800yen, small - 350yen.

I also bought Yamato sake and rare cheese flavour. All of the pudding taste amazingly delicious, their textures is soft and definitely melt in your mouth. This is highly addictive products for me. My favourite flavour is their original custard flavour and the sake. I don't usually fancy sake but they made it very enjoyable to eat.

They also have two flavoured white puddings (Mont Blanc and Yoghurt) - 400yen. Both flavour has cream on top of the puddings and of course they tasted delicious but I still prefer the original pudding.  Sakura pudding (450yen) comes in two flavours; yoghurt pudding with cherry jam and cherry blossom pudding. Sadly it was sold out. Another flavour I want to try next time I'm in Nara is Yamato Hoji-cha Pudding (Nara Roasted Tea) - 350 yen. Besides the pudding they also have orange jelly (400yen), pudding roll cakes (350yen/slice). I was too full to try any of them.They also have other products that does not need refrigeration and has longer life span for souvenirs such as custard jam (700yen), orange juice (350yen), cherry blossom flavoured tea (1000yen),

They give us an ice pack for the puddings cause ideally they should be in refrigerator at all times. They are made by 100% raw milk and eggs so they don't have a long life span and best to be eaten immediately or by the next day. Overall, I would eat this as often as I can if I could. Still dreaming of the smooth, creamy texture of the puddings.
