This Collaborative Cracker Flavor Tastes Like the Famous Dassai Sake

Tokyo-based confection maker Eitaro Sohonpo and sake brewer Asahi Shuzo recently teamed up for the creation of an all-new cracker flavor that tastes like a premium sake from the brewery known as Dassai.

"Karinto" crackers or cookies are a sweet treat that have been made in Japan for hundreds of years, but this new partnership is reintroducing them to the public with a novel twist. For the making of these sake-flavored snacks, sake cake (a byproduct of the sake-making process) is added to the syrup that coats the snack before it is cooked to a crispy texture.

This fusion of traditional Japanese items could inspire others to explore ways of making iconic flavor crossovers in food and beverages.
