It's not very common in most Western countries but in Japan, a company being over 400 years old isn't that unusual. This is the case with Toraya, which now brings you the Toraya An Stand An Paste: founded in the early 16th century in Kyoto, where it became a purveyor to the imperial court, and moving to Tokyo in 1869, when the capital was relocated there, Toraya is the most famous confectioners of classic Japanese sweets (wagashi). And with this paste, you can turn anything into a wagashi!
From a plain slice of toast to croissants, cakes, cookies, and more, the Toraya An Stand An Paste contains red beans, which gives it a uniquely Japanese flavor. You can get a single jar of classic koshian paste or with one or two extra jars featuring a special mix of red-bean paste, brown sugar, and maple syrup. They all come in 155 g (5.4 oz) jars, so pick your favorite configuration and get ready for a confection experience with the tradition of centuries!
