Hattori Suprise! Transformation with the Secret Sauce! (びっくり服部! 秘密のタレで変身じゃ!, Bikkuri Hattori!! Himitsu no tare de henshin ja!) is the 7th episode of Yakitate!! Japan. It aired on November 23, 2004.


The Bread Duel begins. Mokoyama unveils his new bread first, Kougin Pudding Amman, a pudding filled butter roll. It is made using the highest quality ingredients, and all of the judges give it a perfect score. Then, it's Azuma's turn. His bread, which is fried, seems to go over well with the judges; he took leftover bread and fried it in a special sauce to make it soft again. However, the judges note that it is made from leftovers and that people will not want to eat it. In the nick of time, the general manager of Pantasia appears and asks the judges to take price into consideration. Mokoyama announces that the price of his bread will be 190 yen, only slightly higher than a normal butter roll, which is a good deal because of the high-quality ingredients. Then Azuma declares his price - 0 yen. This excites the crowd, and the judges give his bread a perfect score as well - it's a draw.
