Kumamon is here to make you fall in love with Kumamoto Prefecture! Made with fragrant roasted almonds, black sesame, and mizuame, this black sesame taiko is scrumptious. We love the crunchy texture and the way the sweet mizuame mingles with those yummy nutty notes. Each little “drum” is actually handmade in Kumamoto! First, the almonds and sesame are roasted and then mixed by hand with the mizuame over heat. After mixing, it’s hand-pressed into discs and left to cool. They say one drum provides you with a full day’s worth of sesame.
