Hello! Today’s post is one for the chocolate lovers, the biscuits lovers and the panda lovers. I’ve found something that will unite all of you; the Kabaya Saku Saku Panda Cookies.
Kabaya Saku Saku Panda Cookies
$2.99 – OyatsuCafe
I originally tried these cookies when I received a small “taster” packet in a Kawaii Wonderland lucky bag. I was instantly addicted, and gutted when my small packet came to an end… two seconds later. When I received a full size box in an OyatsuBox, I was delighted.
In the box I received nine cookies with eight different expressions. Two of them have the same expression, except one of them has a different coloured nose to the others. Can you spot it? If you did, you spotted it quicker than I did. I only realised until I came to write this post… My personal favourite expression is the grumpy one at the bottom left – it looks like me!
The Kabaya Saku Saku Panda Cookies are made up of a biscuit base topped with two thick layers of chocolate; white and milk. The combination of the two is what makes up the panda’s face, and the thickness of the layer means you get a real chocolate hit.
The biscuit is what you would typically expect; it’s not anything fancy and it doesn’t have an overpowering sweet taste. The focus of these cookies is on the chocolate. The chocolate was my favourite part of the cookie, and I could have eaten a solid bar of it. Even though there were two different types of chocolate, the white chocolate wasn’t that noticeable. I personally felt that the white chocolate made the milk chocolate taste better by adding a creamier taste (and also be the white bit of a panda’s face, obviously!).
I absolutely loved these cookies. As well as being the cutest cookies I have ever eaten, they are also one of the most delicious too. Kabaya need to add a “highly addictive!” warning to the packaging, or at least make them available in larger quantities. Nine cookies is not enough! *shakes fist* I will be buying more of these in the future… but only when I have got the stash down to a manageable size (it’s actually becoming a serious problem now… *gulps*).
