Meiji Kinoko No Yama – Chocolate

Posted in Lifestyle

Hello!  Today’s post is about an accidental purchase I ended up falling in love with!  Behold, the Meiji Kinoko no Yama – Chocolate.

Meiji Kinoko No Yama – Chocolate

I bought this adorable box of Meiji Kinoko No Yama – Chocolate from the huge Chinese supermarket in Leeds.    I had seen these mushroom shaped biscuits several times in the past via blog posts and YouTube videos.    They seemed like a popular product, so I could not resist buying them.  Hey, they are for the blog after all.   I know what you are thinking – you didn’t receive this in an OyatsuBox?

The biscuits come packaged in this cute foil packet inside the box.  It’s a good way of keeping the biscuits fresh if (unlike me) you have some restraint and you do not eat them all in one go.  I was surprised at how heavy the packet felt when I took it out of the box but then again, that means there are plenty of biscuits for me!

The biscuits are a combination of chocolate and biscuit.  The top is chocolate and the stem is biscuit.  I tried to find the technical terms but there is only so much I can read about mushrooms before I begin to feel uneasy..

The chocolate topping is thick and there is a generous amount; it’s so thick it can be bitten off the biscuit.   It seems to be a mixture of milk and dark chocolate.  The biscuit stem is nice too.  It’s not anything special but it goes well with the chocolate.

These biscuits are ridiculously addictive, enjoyable and moreish.  I think because they are so small you think “just one more” and before you know it you’ve already eaten half of the bag.  Can someone take the box away from me, please?

I would definitely buy these biscuits again.  They were SO good.  Why did I have to eat them so quickly?! *cries at terrible self-restraint*.

As it is summer in Japan, chocolate items are a little hard to find.   I have spotted these on the Japan Centre website if were interested in trying them.   I would repurchase this variety, but I’d also like to try any other flavours available as well as the DIY Candy Kit version (if I can ever find it in stock!).

Would you try Meiji Kinoko No Yama?

    These are super cute, and do look like it’d be hard to stop eating them ’til they were all gone! x
