Hello! Hopefully some of you have recovered from the mental imagery I inflicted on you in yesterday’s blog post – #sorrynotsorry. I thought I would talk about something a little happier today – Japanese chocolate! I bought some Meiji Choco Baby Chocolate from the Chinese supermarket near me as it was a) discounted and b) there were only a few left! I bought two boxes so that I could review it thoroughly… *gobbles chocolate*
Meiji Choco Baby Chocolate
These petite chocolate pieces are extremely moreish. Soft and chewy, they are designed to melt in the mouth. The plastic container is resealable, but you may just find yourself eating them all in one go!
I fell in love with Meiji chocolate when I bought a box of their Meltykiss chocolate
when I visited the Japan Centre in London
. Oh my lord, I haven’t had chocolate like it. I dream of the day I can eat it again *salivates violently*
. The chocolate pieces in this are not as soft; they’re quite hard and to be honest, they remind me of TicTacs! (I think it is the packaging). There is the familiar cocoa scent of Meiji when you flip open the lid but I’m quite disappointed about the actual chocolate. It is nice chocolate, but as the pieces are so small it doesn’t really feel like you’re eating chocolate – you’re not getting the “hit” so to speak! You have to eat several pieces at a time to get the full Meiji taste and I can see why they say it is possible for you to eat them all in one go. I think I bought this for about £1.99 at the supermarket. You can get them on the Japan centre website
but they are a little expensive at £4.79 in my opinion. It’s not a big container. I would much rather buy a box of Meltykiss over this and I would advise you do the same.
Have you tried any Japanese confectionary? I think it’s time for me to try their KitKats!
