The Story of Gaufres
Fusion of French sweets and Japanese sweets
Beginning in around 1926 customers returning from overseas brought with them French sweets and proposed a challenge to try making them even in Japan.
Technicians of Japanese western confectionery at the time worked on prototype research with the spirit of traditional Japanese sweet-making and the enthusiasm to create new sweets.
Instead of simply mimicking French confectionery, Full use was made of the merits along with the merits of Japanese sweets and in 1927 after a long hard process of trial and research it was finally put on sale.
