What is Shiroi Koibito?

Shiroi Koibito is one of the most popular souvenirs of Hokkaido and can be said to be an ironclad product.

It is a Western-style candy produced and sold by Ishiya Seika, a candy manufacturer in Sapporo, Hokkaido.

Shiroi Koibito is a thin, crisp, and light cookie made without egg yolks and baked with flour, egg whites, butter, and sugar, called langue de chat, with chocolate sandwiched in between.

There are two types: “Shiroi Koibito White” with white chocolate in between and “Shiroi Koibito Black” with milk chocolate in between.

The origin of the name “Shiroi Koibito”, which went on sale in December 1976, can be found on the back of the paper box that you can read when you pick one up.

It is said to have come from a casual remark made by the founder on his way back from skiing one year: “It’s raining Shiroi Koibito.

The picture on the surface of the package shows “Mt. Rishiri” in Hokkaido.

When the then president of Ishiya Seika visited Rishiri, he was impressed that it looked like a mountain range in Switzerland and adopted it for the package because Shiroi Koibito was intended to be a European-style confectionery.

Shiroi Koibito is also sold in cans and paper boxes.
