Digging something out from the past...
Sometime back in 2007, there was a song called The Melonpan Song (メロンパンのうた, Melonpan no Uta) which was sung by a then nine-year-old singer/songwriter girl named Yuppi (ゆっぴ). It's about how anpan has anko (red bean paste) inside, curry bread has curry inside, but melonpan has no melon inside.
The video of the song can be watched below:
A nicer quality version without subtitles can be found here.
I remember first encountering it from From Random Curiosity, when OMNI was still doing his daily anime blogging. It's a cute and innocent song, and not surprisingly anime fans would relate this to Shana, who is well known for eating melonpans. Apparently some had already suggested that this should be a theme song of some kind for her - perhaps an ending song for upcoming season / specials? ^^;
"Urusai, urusai, urusai!"
Writing this post about the melonpan reminds me of pineapple bun. And funny enough just like melonpan has no melon inside, pineapple bun has no pineapple inside, hence sharing more similarities between them XD
Now I remember how this Melonpan Song came back to me. It was because I was eating this luminescent-like green Swiss roll, which I was speculating whether it contains melon flavour or not. Turns out that it tastes just like ordinary ones, and this is probably how the song came back to me out of the blue.
Yes, that Swiss roll really is that green.
Thanks to Anonymous for pointing out this is actually a pandan Swiss roll, i.e. a Swiss roll version of pandan cake. I didn't buy this cake and haven't had prior experience of padan-related food so I've only known about it just then.
