this is how fatafille feels all the time

Throughout my peregrinations in Weeaboo land, I have heard often of "melon pan". Next to the incorrigible Pocky, it is said to be the Holy Grail of Japanese junk cuisine. Ahhahahum. So seeing it on the ledge in my dearest "Tokyo Discount" emporium, I knew at once that I must purchase this "melon pan". I was fervent to open the packaging parchment, and unfortunately as I did so, some sort of liquid sugar or "frosting" came onto mine digits. Melon pan was already coming into hassels from which I am afraid, it does not rise from.

My initial thought upon masticating the melon pan was, "oh dear, how terribly dry." You see, dearest reader, I expected there to be some sort of "filling" inside of the bread. But, nay, the melon pan was a vast orb of nothing but bread. 'twas rather jejune. the saving grace was the "frosting", but it was rather scarce. Overall, there was little difference between eating melon pan and eating a piece of pedestrian "wonder bread" (sniff).

I suggest that if one finds themselves about to consume meron pan, they have themselves a beverage to consume to counter the dryness.

as so

I give melon pan 2/5 monocles.

not recommended except for the experience, the points that make it possible to further one's weeaboo level, if you will.

As you mentioned in your long-awaited review, a delicious beverage in which to dunk one's confectionry is paramount to the melon pan experience. To consume any form of shokupan without a proper drink onhand is simply unthinkable!

I am befuddled in finding words to justly compose why melon pan tastes nothing like melon, but rather like a section of corrugated cardboard!

p.s. I like fatalfille she are princess.
