Will Miss #293 - soba boro

There is a type of buckwheat cookie that is unique to Japan (in my experience) which I really love. It's called "soba boro", and is a small, flower-shaped crispy treat. It is made with simple ingredients - buckwheat flour, sugar, and eggs. They aren't too sweet, taste of caramel, and have a lot of the crispy, airy nature of meringue cookies due to the large amount of eggs and sugar that are used. What is more, they are low in calories (about 11 each), and very cheap and can be found everywhere.

I'll miss having easy access to these cheap, tasty, cookies any time and nearly anywhere.
