"First Love" Strawberry Sugar is a brightly colored granulated sugar containing freeze-dried strawberries. The strawberries used are the famous Tochiotome of Tochigi prefecture, which are known to have a delicious balance between sweetness and sourness.

The strawberries,crushed into large pieces, are combined with granulated sugar to create the gorgeous "Hatsukoi Sugar" (First Love Sugar).

The faintly pink color is not due to any coloring agent, but is the vibrant color of the Tochiotome strawberries themselves.

Opening the lid, you'll be greeted by the rich and fresh aroma of the strawberries, which make a perfect sweetener for tea.

Another tasty option it to make strawberry toast by mixing the sugar with butter and spreading it on your morning slices.
