Won't Miss #434 - Sakura-flavor

When spring rolls around, which apparently is any time between February and April depending on who you speak with, the sakura-flavored food starts rolling out. Sakura means "cherry blossom", not "cherry". The taste of sakura runs the gamut, but it is often a bit on the soapy side and overly floral. It's not a bad taste really. However, it's not one that I find especially good. I would say that it's probably a better fit for people who like the taste of lavender or rose in their tea than for the likes of me.

I won't miss all of the sakura-flavored treats that come out in spring, and the fact that I'm so careless that I buy them thinking they are cherry or strawberry.
