The Best Store Bought Japanese Puddings In Tokyo!

Pudding! Probably one of the most popular Japanese desserts! Although it's very similar to custard pudding, it has a distinctly Japanese flavor. Let's give it a try in Japan, it's delicious!

Feel free to follow favy!

Japanese Pudding (Purin) プリン

Japanese pudding would be called custard pudding, flan or crème caramel in the West. It is eaten all over the world and has probably originated from France or Spain. It is very similar to a crème brûlée except that the caramel is soft, rather than burnt. It is plain custard cream with a caramel sauce on top.

Tamago Kobo Ueno


This store is a little out of the way, but it's definitely worth it.
You can also buy roll cakes, and fresh eggs at this store! The eggs are ¥500 a dozen, which seems a little pricey, but they're that good!
The puddings are simple, yet perfect. They just serve them with ground nuts on top, and some caramel at the bottom. Plus, they're super cheap!

Seijo Ishii


The puddings are sold individually or in packs of three in aluminum foil cups, they're not the fanciest, but they're really good.
Seijo Ishii is an upscale supermarket where you can find a lot of delicious goods. You should try their puddings!

Asakusa Silk Pudding

There are many variants to the classic version of this highly popular pudding, you can also try sesame, the premium version (with the highest quality of Japanese milk and two kinds of vanilla beans), green tea, coffee, caramel, cheese, and strawberry.
I was drawn to the cheese one and it was in fact excellent!

Happy Pudding Mahakala

There are tons of flavors to choose from at this Nakameguro store, but the custard cream one is the most popular. There is coffee flavor, pumpkin, sweet potato, matcha, as well as seasonal flavors to try.

Pâtisserie Française Quatre

¥210-250/each; or ¥960/4 puddings

These puddings' packaging is really adorable, the puddings are poured into eggshells and are then sold in egg cartons. The flavor is delicate and refined, with caramel at the bottom and whipped cream on top. There are plenty of other flavors to choose from, such as pumpkin, chocolate, strawberry, matcha, etc.

Colombin's Harajuku Honey Pudding

¥1,029 (with taxes)
To optimize the honey's flavor, this store uses the best quality milk, eggs, and sugar. The honey is poured over the pudding and the combination of tastes is sublime. It's a little pricey, but it's all the rage.
