1st

Premium Kororo, Grape Flavoured (GINZA SEMBIKIYA)                                 648 yen

 CORORO-03

Our favorite snack available at ‘BLUE SKY PREMIUM’.

This grape flavoured chewing candy is only found at ‘BLUE SKY PREMIUM’ and the ‘PATISSERIE GINZA SEMBIKIYA GINZA SIX’ shop at Ginza.

 This candy is made with a strong focus on moisture, to achieve a similar feeling to when one bites into a grape.

 Let’s try it!

I was surprised by how good this was.

This product was designed with the aim of emulating grapes, but it seems confectionary science has surpassed nature.

This is genuinely delicious—beware of addiction.

 

 2nd

Au Lait Flavoured Nama Chocolate (Royce’)                          777 Yen

 4903379020548

Nama  Chocolate is a Japanese invention.

Royce’ developed this type of chocolate following the idea of isolating the ganache that is usually found in the insides of truffles. ‘Nama’ means ‘raw’ in Japanese.

After isolating and developing this ganache,  ‘nama’ chocolate was developed.

Royce’s most popular Nama Chocolate is made from an exquisite mixture of chocolate, liquor, and fresh cream from Hokkaido.

Nama chocolate is known for having a soft exterior and melting on your tongue.

 Let’s try it!

 Just by smelling the product, you already know it’s the real deal.

A scent of cacao emanates from the chocolate.

This delicate smell is then followed by the bombastic flavour.

The comparison is night and day, as the strong chocolate flavour demands the attention of all your senses.

It leaves you with an after taste that you can’t forget.

 3rd

Premium Kororo, Melon flavoured (GINZA SEMBIKIYA)                                    648 yen

 CORORO-01

This product is the melon variety of the aforementioned grape flavored chewing candy.

By only using fruits from Japan, this snack manages to give off a strong melon-like fragrance.

Let’s try it!

After biting into the candy, I was astounded by the texture.

This snack tries to emulate the texture of the real fruits themselves, and does so by having melon pulp inside the candy itself.

The melon pulp changes the texture of the candy, and creates a dynamic between the soft interior.

The immersive feeling on your tongue is then complimented by the stunning flavour.

It’s a must try.

 

4th

Matcha(Green Tea) Flavoured ‘Nama’ Chocolate (Royce’)           777 Yen

 4903379030899int

This particular product is a traditional Japanese green tea flavoured variation of nama chocolate.

It has the aroma and bitterness of green tea, so made by blending in powdered premium green tea leaves and sprinkling on green tea-flavoured chocolate powder.

Let’s try it!

This snack offers the opportunity to experience the contrasting flavours of green tea and chocolate, through the medium of Nama chocolate.

It was interesting to taste this marriage of flavours whilst experiencing the soft and silky texture unique to Nama chocolate.

Distinctively Japanese flavour within a distinctively Japanese texture combines to create a sure fire winner.

 

5th

Uji Green Tea Kit Kat (Nestle)                                                     162 yen

 新キットカット宇治抹茶パッケージ

KitKat is one of the most popular chocolates here in Japan, and has produced more than 300 flavours—ranging from Wasabi to Miso soup—in order to meet Japanese expectations.

Amongst tourists seeking Japanese souvenirs, ‘Uji Green Tea’ flavour is the top selling variety of KitKat.

Now to see if its taste merits its position as the best amongst its 300 peers.

Let’s try it!

The rich green texture is stunning to look at, and the simple visual artistry itself sells the KitKat; however, the true experience begins when you eat the KitKat.

The traditional chocolate flavour one expects out of  KitKat is supplemented by an even richer flavour of Green Tea.

The two flavours achieve a stunning fusion—creating a crossover even more exciting than ‘Avengers Infinity War’.

Chocolate and Green Tea, what’s not to love?
