Eat with your Eyes: Chiroru Goen Ga Aruyo Chocolate
Winter holidays mean chocolate money. As a kid I think I was more fascinated with the chocolate coins and the foil impressions than the chocolate itself. (This isn’t surprising as most chocolate coins are just terrible.) I found a cute alternative to the gold foil stuff in the little mesh bags. This Japanese version comes packaged in little plastic sleeves, not foil though. But still, the result out of the wrapper is impressive.
Sadly the product itself, made by Tirol, is mockolate. Pretty to look at, but not terribly tasty. Package photo if you wanted to try to find these.
Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
