Blue Jean Osaka - Christmas Limited Ruby Cat Paw Pastry
Blue Jean Bakery in Osaka is popular for its cat-shaped bread and pastries as well as cat paw-shaped cakes. The adorable Neko no Te (cat paw) pastry includes a Christmas makeover with ruby chocolate and a festive costume.
The bakery and cafe Blue Jean in Osaka is known for their adorable cat-shaped bread and cat paw-shaped pastry called Neko no Te (cat paw).
Originally, Neko no Te was only available in plain and chocolate flavors, but Blue Jean offers seasonal flavors as well. For the Christmas season 2019, the cat paw shaped treat comes covered in white chocolate and filled with naturally-red ruby chocolate under the name Christmas Neko no Te.
The tart berry flavor is perfect to enjoy this winter in Japan as berries, especially strawberries, are a standard ingredient in seasonal winter sweets like the Japanese Christmas cake. It is also decorated with chocolate wishing diners a Merry Christmas instead of the usual plain chocolate cat palm.
Each adorable and delicious Christmas paw retails for 280 yen. You can also purchase the set of all three flavors for 690 yen. The special version is only available until Christmas, so don't miss out!
