A Taste of Japan


This isn’t the first time I have posted pictures of my favourite Japanese chocolate. Much like the other times I was fortunate to find myself in possession of these beauties, they were a gift from one of my students.

I discovered these chocolates by accident when I was living in Japan.  I was brave in those days.  I bought things from the candy aisle that I was not completely sure about.  Sometimes I watched what the little children were purchasing and at other times I took random stabs at things. I guessed that these were chocolates but they could have been something else.  If you’ve been to Japan, you know what I mean.  Heck, if you watch any Jvloggers you probably know what I mean. Japan can mix some pretty adventurous flavours.

These chocolates have been around for more than 25 years. In Japan, if something doesn’t sell, and sometimes even if it does, the product disappears.  So these have staying power.

I’ve eaten three of them, and I am sure by tomorrow afternoon they will be all gone. What will I do then?

    I bought some back from my Japan trip last fall. I also tried their green tea chocolates.
