Do you enjoy exotic new foods and experiencing new tastes? The GMHS Anime Society Japanese bake sale catered to exotic tastes with Hello Panda cookies, fruit jellies, and other sweet treats.
The club is raising money for Katsucon, an anime convention on Valentine’s Day weekend, February 15-17 at Baltimore Harbor. There will be tons of people dressing up in cosplay at the convention. They dress up as anything like video game characters, or a vending machine.
There will be lots of booths and vendors, usually of both anime and manga and you can even get free stuff, get autographs or talk with voice actors and just have fun. Go to the convention if you want to try unique foods from a different culture.
At Katsucon, there could be assortments ranging from Umeboshi (Japanese pickled plums), Onigiri (riceballs), panda bread, bean jam buns, and Karumetou, a sweet sugar cake. Kakigori shaved ice with syrup topping is also very popular.
Japanese desserts vary from being salty or sweet. In Japan the word okashi originally referred to fruits or nuts, but when China learned from India and sold sugar to Japan, people started using sugar more.
