“I wonder what happens to all the crusts?”

Yamazaki is the largest bakery that makes peanut cream sandwiches. They use the crusts to make Rusk with different kinds of flavors. Rusk is very popular in Japan. Smaller bakeries may sell a bag of crusts.. I use to eat them as snacks when I was a kid. My mom used them as panko (bread crumbs) for cooking.

People call bread crusts “Pan no Mimi”; Pan = bread, Mimi = Ear.
