Before the Portuguese, Japan did not know sweets. Sugar was used as medicine. Tea was served with fruit, boiled fish, potatoes or mushrooms. In the 16th century, the Portuguese brought cookies, caramels, candies and sweets. Confectionery products immediately became very popular. The grateful Japanese gave them the common name nanbangashi, that is, #sweets_of_the_southern_barbarians #japanese #nanbangashi #Purtoguese #shaykof
