Meiji Strawberry Chocolate Apollos

Posted in Lifestyle

Hello!  I’m slowly, but surely, making a dent in my Japanese candy stash.  Yay for getting it under control, nay for split jeggings.  I wish I was joking.  Today’s post is about some little sweet treats; the Meiji Strawberry Chocolate Apollos.

Meiji Strawberry Apollo - Famous in Japan

These rocket shaped chocolates zoomed into my life via a parcel swap with Nicole.   They are made up of a milk chocolate base, topped with a strawberry flavoured white chocolate tip.    The box features a small Hello Kitty to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Hello Kitty, and also the 45th anniversary of Meiji Apollos.

When I opened these up for the first time, I was surprised that they were not in a separate foil packet of their own.  It’s rather strange that the Japanese have trusted the apollos to roam free around their box but I’m not complaining – it means they’re easier for me to get to, and eat!

As I have tried a few chocolate products from Meiji now, including their Chocolate Cream Meltykiss and their Choco Baby Chocolate, I knew I had nothing to be worried about.  I was right; Meiji have done it again.

These little chocolates are unbelieveably good.  They are so moreish and addictive, I cannot stop eating them.    I nearly ate the entire box in a sitting.   The milk chocolate is the typical Meiji chocolate; creamy, sweet but not too rich.  The strawberry flavoured white chocolate is lovely too.  It’s not as sweet as it was in the Meiji Meltykiss Fruity Strawberry Chocolates, but it’s still enjoyable.   With these apollos, it’s the milk chocolate’s time to shine, and there is more of a balance between the two flavours.

Yet another product from Meiji that has made it into my affections.  I will definitely be buying these again in the future.  I will also be buying the DIY candy kit where you can make the apollos.  I think it would be so much fun!  I won’t be able to get my hands on it now that it is summer in Japan, but I’m going to make a deal with myself that if I can get the stash down to a reasonable size by winter I will treat myself to it, as well as other items!

    Hopefully your jeggings splitting didn’t happen in public! I love the flavor combo of chocolate and strawberry, so these sound delish! Whenever I have the opportunity, I can’t wait to try all of the amazing treats you review!
