Saku Saku Panda Presents Suntanned Panda Biscuits

Dearest readers, I have been away from this blog for ages and ages. I just wasn’t feeling up to it. When I’m ready, one day perhaps I will be able to talk about why, but for now I’m just trying to get back into some kind of posting schedule. I decided to make a comeback…

Happy Turn - Otona no Chocolat

Happy Turn – Otona no Chocolat

A very quick post today to let the internet know just how obsessed I am with this limited edition flavour of Happy Turn – Otona no Chocolat. I have written about the maple and green tea versions before, but this is just too amazing not to share. It give the feeling of eating the regular ones in…

Royce’ is a Japanese chocolate manufacturing company based in Sapporo, Hokkaido. It makes a number of chocolate goodies, and also just beautiful chocolate covered crisps – mmmmm.…

New Daifuku

As soon as I saw this new flavour of my beloved Yukimi Daifuku peeking out of the freezer section of my local convenience store, I knew I had to get my hands, and mouth, on it. Personally, I’m not usually a huge fan of strawberry ice cream, but this was divine! A mochi mochi exterior,…
