Kinotoya’s “Hokkaido Milk Cookie Sapporo Agricultural College” - Hokkaido Likers recommended gifts

I will introduce “Hokkaido Milk Cookie Sapporo Agricultural College” which is one of the most famous souvenirs from Sapporo. Although the cookie was born in the Heisei period, package design is retro. There is a definite reason for that.

Sapporo’s confectionery company “Kinotoya” started selling “Hokkaido Milk Cookie Sapporo Agricultural College” over 10 years ago. 

The idea came from the serious typhoon which hit Hokkaido. 

The present chairman graduated Hokkaido University. When he saw the famous poplar trees destroyed by the typhoon, he wanted to create confectioneries for the university he graduated and for the local community.

Hokkaido University certifies the name "Sapporo Agricultural College". This is the same name from the school which professors such as William S. Clark taught in the Meiji Period and later became Hokkaido University. 

The reason why package design is made with retro taste is that they wanted to put images from that time. 

It reminds me of the Kaitakushi era.  
 

The sweet flavor of milk

Cookies are very crunchy, and the sweet flavor of milk makes everyone happy.

They use plenty of milk and butter.

They donate part of the sales from “Hokkaido Milk Cookie Sapporo Agricultural College” to Hokkaido University to support education, and they also founded grant-type scholarship “Kinotoya Scholarship.” 

You can find the cookies at shops in Sapporo City and major souvenir shops. So buy some of these cookies to tell your friends and families about delicious dairy products from Hokkaido.
