The addition of sponge cake and a sesame biscuit makes it more than just a product of the vast prefecture's bounty: it is a delightful and splendid sight to see.

The Sola Parfait is an original product Yotsuba Milk Products began selling in July 2011, all of which are made fresh and on-the-spot when ordered by the customer.
