uzumaki breadActually, this is not Uzumaki Danish. It’s similar one. The name is “Mini Snack Gold”. I don’t know why there is one which is really similar to Uzumaki Danish. Anyway, no matter what, I call this kind of bread Uzumaki Danish. Uzumaki and Uzumaki naruto are not related. But uzumaki means a whirlpool. By the way, what is Danish? People from Denmark? Hmmm. When I saw this bread’s calorie for the first time, I was surprised to see 556kcal… I like it a lot, so it’s sometimes my dinner.
