Melonbread (melonpan) is something you see, or hear about a lot in anime. Now, I've finally gotten to try some!
A good friend of mine sent me some melonpan yesterday! Sadly, it took a while to get here, so by the time it got here, it was squished and humid. I think it might have to do with the weather, because the packaging says something along the lines of "Keep around 30* C (May to October)", I think. Currently, where I live, it is indeed 30*C, but it had to be at least 34*C inside the box because it was in a hot unconditioned truck for at least a week.
However, it was still good. It had a delicious aroma, and the top layer had a slight melon flavor (It seems they added melon extract), while the inside was soft and fluffy. But...but... the top layer wasn't crispy... I was a teensy bit disappointed. I guess you have to get bakery-style melonpan or make it yourself for the crispiness.
