Japan’s tastiest chocolate snack

What Japan Thinks - Sun, 10/25/2020 - 18:14

There’s a wonderful selection of chocolate-based snacks available in Japan, so this survey from goo Ranking asked people what was their most tasty chocolate snack.

More than a specific brand, what I like is the seasonal variations in flavours that are offered, although this autumn there’s a bit too much chestnut and sweet potato for my liking…

Here’s some of the number one, Takenoko no Sato:
