According to Japanese tradition, Doyo no Hi (July 29) is a day dedicated to eating eel because of its supposed stamina-boosting powers. But not everyone is a fan of real unagi, so various bakeries and 7-Eleven stores around Japan have come up with a delicious alternative — unagi pastries.
Made with 100% eel free ingredients, these sweets have come in all forms around the country, from white chocolate unagi bread to cream-filled and unagi-shaped donuts and chocolate eclairs.
Even if you’re a fan of traditional eel dishes, finishing off your meal with one of these adorable desserts takes the holiday to a whole new level of deliciousness.
