Hello! Today’s post is about something that combined three of my favourite things; chocolate, Hello Kitty and Fujiya Milky sweets, but yet turned out to be a disappointment. Let’s talk about the Fujiya Peko & Hello Kitty Milky Chocolate.
Fujiya Peko & Hello Kitty Milky Chocolate
I bought this adorable bar of chocolate from Blippo. I could not resist the lure of Fujiya Milky sweets combined with chocolate. If you are a long time reader of my blog you will know that I love Fujiya Milky sweets. If you have know me in real life you will know that I love Hello Kitty. When you put those two together, surely you have a recipe for success? Perhaps not.. read on…
I nearly cried at the adorable inside packaging. Seriously, LOOK AT IT. I want to save it forever! Why can’t I be creative? I would love to make something amazing out of this… *scours Pinterest for ideas*
The cuteness continues on to the chocolate itself as well; you can see there are little Peko faces imprinted into the pieces.
But sadly my friends, this is where the praises end.
The Fujiya Peko & Hello Kitty Milky Chocolate boasts chocolate pieces filled with mixture of milk and strawberry flavoured filling.
With this promise, I was imagining a deliciously addictive snack that satisfied the chocoholic in me. I was doubtful of the milky filling, but I reassured myself that the strawberry filling would no doubt more than make up for any of the milky filling’s shortcomings.
I’m not sure which part of the chocolate is responsible for the sharp, almost alcoholic taste but I’m going to blame it on the filling. The filling does not taste that nice. The tastes are similar, and if you were not paying attention you probably wouldn’t know which flavour it was. I had to refer back to the packaging to see which flavour I was tasting several times.
Whilst initially the chocolate smells good when you take it out of the packaging, the taste is another story. It tastes very cheap and at times artificial; it is not sweet, creamy or even that chocolate-y.
The chocolate and the filling together actually reminds me of confectionery I have tried in the past but i just can’t place my finger on what it reminds me of. I will end up remembering what it was 50 years later….
It goes without saying that I definitely would not purchase the Fujiya Peko & Hello Kitty Milky Chocolate again. I struggled to finish the bar I had for this review as I just did not enjoy eating it at all. I’m so gutted that this turned out to be a disappointment, although I’m sure my bank balance and waistline are secretly rejoicing.
Now if you will excuse me, I am going to console myself with the large bag of Fujiya Milky sweets Nicole sent me in our last parcel swap whilst I watch That 70’s Show on Netflix…
