What is Tokyo Milk Shokupan (sliced bread) that a milk store makes?

Gyunyu Shokupan Senmonten Milk is a sliced bread specialty store run by the traditional milk store
Kaneko Nyugyo in Adachi District, Tokyo. With the hope that customers would start the day more comfortably through breakfast, they opened a specialty store of sliced bread, which is essential for breakfast along with milk.

Plenty of fresh cream is used, and condensed milk is added as an accent to make it rich.

Water is used in normal bread, but the bread this store produces uses only milk. Because of this, they succeeded in making it delicious to the fullest even when eaten without toasting. Special rich milk is used, and it has a sweet and rich scent and taste. The inside is soft and chewy when you slice into the freshly baked milk bread. The crust of the bread is also tasty and richly melts in your mouth.

Enjoying it with jam and milk is recommended.

Tokyo Milk Shokupan (¥800), which is tasty by itself, and
Gyunyu yasan no oishii Shokupan (Milk Store’s Tasty Sliced Bread) (¥600), which is perfect for a toast, are available at the store. You may eat them plain, or with butter, jam, and cream cheese that goes well with milk. The possibilities are endless when you are able to try many kinds of combinations.

Not only bread! Ice cream and rusks are available, too.

There are many options on the menu other than bread.
Tokyo Milk Soft (¥200), which uses original rich milk, is a kind of ice cream that is enjoyed by people of all ages from children to the elderly. There are also items in the lineup that will make you stop by the store such as Milk Nama (raw) Rusk (¥200) and Sugar Rusk (¥200). These were created from the wish to build a bakery where families and the community they live in will have a comfortable relationship with each other.
