Will Miss #92 - mont blanc
Mont blanc is a dessert made with sweetened chestnut paste. The origin is not clearly known, but either some place in Japan gets credit or a place in France. Whatever the origin, I never saw mont blanc in the United States and don't expect to find it easily there when I return. In Japan, mont blanc is sold almost everywhere, from 99 yen convenience stores with refrigerator cases to supermarkets to classy patisseries.
It has become one of my favorite desserts and I'm going to miss being able to have one whenever I want (or possibly even at all).
