Our glass pots have been just as well loved as the custard puddings they contain for all these years.

About Our Glass Pots
The relatively thick ceramic pots used when we first started selling our custard puddings proved very popular, but because they were made by hand, there was a limit to how many we could make. So we embarked on mass-production in a factory. However, achieving the same delicious taste that the custard puddings made by hand in our shop was a more difficult challenge than we had imagined.
The pot needed to be strong enough to withstand the process of steam-baking.
It had to be of a design that would stop the caramel sauce from rising to the top.
It needed to have a form that would evoke a sense of definite worth.
The solution to these challenges was something that has since become synonymous with Morozoff’s Custard Pudding – our glass pot. Glass has the advantage of conveying the heat slowly into the center of the custard, enabling it to cook consistently.
Initially, our glass-pot custard puddings were only available in the Kansai and Kanto areas. No sooner had they been released than they became a huge hit with Kobe’s female university students, who gave them the nick-name “Mega Pudding.”
In the fifty years or so since the birth of Morozoff’s custard pudding, and the forty years or so since the switch to glass pots in 1973, Morozoff has continued to make improvements to our glass pots through trial and error, such as modifying the shape to prevent breakage and making it lighter.
Then, on July 1, 2013, as a new challenge in the product’s 51st year, we launched our Prime Custard Pudding (Fresh Cream) in a new glass pot.
The glass pots used for our Custard Pudding have undergone numerous transformations over the years. If we only count the changes for which we still have records, the reduction in weight in 2012 was the fifth major change. When minor changes are included, there has been a total of seven changes.
Our Custard Pudding comes in containers that are made of glass. In areas where glass is accepted by local governments, you can dispose of our glass pots on recyclable rubbish (resource rubbish) days.
When we heard from our customers that, after they had finished enjoying the delicious Custard Pudding, they were re-using our glass pots for a variety of other purposes, we came up with our “Pudding Lid.” Use your own flair to re-use our glass pots in any way you like.
