Mont Blanc Sweet Potato Dango Maron Flavor is a sweet made by wrapping a dango in sweet potato filling and sprinkling thin strings of roasted chestnut paste on top. They are particular about adjusting the amount of chestnut paste so that the flavors of the potatoes and chestnuts don't get too muddy. There are also variations of roasted chestnut paste that incorporate Hojicha and Uji Matcha. In addition, the white-based store also sells products such as sweet potato kenpi, which are perfect for snacks, and baked goods that make great souvenirs and small gifts.
