A while ago, when my friend returned from Japan, he bought me a souvenir box of cookies, called “Maid Cookie”. Has anyone ever seen these or tried them before? They’re quite good. More pix after the jump!
I’ve seen it more than once, as some of my other friends have recieved it as gifts before. The little maid on the box front is so cute!
“Maid in Tokyo
Milk & Maple”
A close-up of the kawaii meido. I’m assuming the tiny Japanese characters on the cookie say “Meido”.
The cookie box has a flap opening, revealing individually packed delicacies inside. And there’s Mikuru, ready to serve some delightful tea-time favors!
Each cookie has a printed expression of the maid. I have to wonder, who was the artist for this? Why would a cookie company shell out for such a product? What is their target market? Need I really ask? It’s Japan.
Each cookie is individually wrapped, and comes in either Milk flavored, or Maple flavored.
It’s tea time! I hope you enjoy your cookie. I know I will!
