Melonpan — Japanese Sweet Bread

I was talking to a co-worker today who just came back from Japan. He said one of the best things he at there was melon bread.

I immediately googled this and found he was talking about melonpan.

A melonpan (メロンパン, meronpan) (also known as melon pan, melon bun or melon bread) is a type of sweet bun from Japan, made from a bread dough covered in a thin layer of crisp cookie dough.
