 If you order a sundae or a parfait in Japan, it will arrive at your table looking like a dream desert, but as soon as you dig down into it you will find... CORNFLAKES!!! Sometimes you will find a lot of cornflakes. It's very strange for Westerners to find breakfast cereal in a dessert. I suppose it is similar to how Japanese people often feel if they encounter rice pudding. It's a strange world, isn't it?


  1. Cornflakes for dessert is weird for you?! That's something I didn't know!!! I think for Japanese, it is nothing strange. But cornflakes sounds cheap while granola sounds rich! hehe

  2. I can't imagine a granola sundae!! But do you know what trifle is? Kind of a sponge cake sundae...
